You can choose to use Aras’ full suite of PLM applications, or you can use it to complement and extend existing PLM/PDM applications. In both cases, the Aras Platform will be the central backbone for product data and processes.
The critical differentiator that enables Aras to be this backbone is the Platform Modelling Engine and the Open Architecture which enables modelling of complex connected processes and data structures, as well as advanced interactions with other applications.
Openness is critical to the long term success and sustainability of Aras' PLM/PDM systems. To enable true interoperability, portability and extensibility they provide an open architecture which features open software, an open data model, open interfaces and use of open Web standards.
Aras is an n-tier, model-based service oriented architecture (SOA) built entirely on open web standards composed of web clients, application servers(s), database(s) and file vaulting servers(s) based on standard Internet protocols including HTTP/HTTPS, XML and SOAP.

Product Lifecycle Management
With the complexity of today's global business environment, more and more companies are experiencing challenges of managing their processes from concept development, through manufacturing, until the end of the product life cycle. While maintaining in-house efficiency, they should also be capable of searching for new opportunities. PLM enables organizations to accelerate their performance on both streams of the Supply Chain.
Product Data Management
For many companies, it is of high importance to be able to ensure a secure storage place for all their files, especially CAD ones. The need for one information hub allowing access to all types of data and enabling easy data recall for different purposes has grown tremendously in the past decade.
Further, this is vitally important in the organization throughout design reviews, engineering changes, defect investigations, and all other processes.
