Inforbix monster search engine integrated into PLM 360

A few lucky customers have received access to the long awaited implementation of  the Inforbix search engine into PLM 360.

Checking out this You Tube video – it looks pretty slick. I can’t wait to give it a try!

This is the technology that won Oleg Shilovitsky the coveted position of ‘Senior Director of PLM and Data Management’ at Autodesk – so we know it’s good… but why?

The premise behind Oleg’s project is to turn PDM on it’s head. Instead of spending a lot of time creating file and folder naming standard protocols (which nobody else gives a Monkeys about!) the new technology downloads a Google-like web crawler onto your server.

No files actually leave your server – only the meta data is captured and uploaded to PLM360. This allows you to search your server in double quick time from within your PLM360 tenant.
