Cloud computing is everywhere, even though we’re not always aware of it. When you’re checking your phone for email or using a map app to get somewhere, or sharing photos, you’re using the cloud.
With the COVID-19 global pandemic, companies are more aware than ever before of the need to connect people and processes across locations – whether they’re in the office, working from home, or working from anywhere else with internet access. This is driving more demand for PLM in the cloud – where the cloud can be leveraged for data storage and software services.
Teamcenter X helps get customers up and running quickly and cost-effectively. Remember, Teamcenter X is Teamcenter, offering a proven and full breadth of solutions and industry expertise.
Teamcenter X is a modern, future-ready answer for companies that are searching for a cloud SaaS approach to PLM to get up and running quickly with the ability to grow.
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a software licensing and delivery model in which software accessed from the cloud is licensed on a monthly basis (i.e., paid for monthly or annually) and is centrally hosted rather than bought and installed on individual computers. SaaS PLM brings together
1.) SaaS cloud technology, with its perks of on-demand, secure access to information from anywhere around the world, delivered and maintained by the software vendor, and
2.) product lifecycle management (PLM), enabling innovation with enterprise collaboration and integrating people, data, processes, and business systems.
Industry knowledge and best practices from thousands of customer implementations have been bundled into a simplified pre-configured SaaS solution. And the nice part of Teamcenter X is it can grow as your business needs to grow, at any time you opt to add in solutions from the Teamcenter portfolio.

The Teamcenter Assistant suggests the next possible actions to perform and provides the relevant data required to perform them. These suggestions are based on the context, history, and usage frequency of actions performed by other previous users belonging to the same role or group. Experienced users can log on to Active Workspace using special user credentials and train the Assistant on their preferred way of completing their tasks by turning on tutor mode. The Assistant panel displays your most recent data, your team's recent data, your favourites and the contents of the clipboard. By suggesting the following logical commands, the Assistant helps to: • Improve your efficiency by reducing the cognitive load. • Minimize the number of mouse clicks required to perform your tasks. • Reduce the total time required to complete a task.
A Teamcenter X deployment will have a minimum of 20 users for direct sales (Partners may have an exception to this if using promotions), and start with the basics of PLM such as Workflow, Visualization, BOM, and Document Management. Pre-configurations of capabilities, with best practices built-in, help you start quickly with PLM, to realize a quick return on investment. Extensions to Teamcenter X could include system integrations, custom business logic, hybrid environments for both on-premises and cloud, advanced configurations, etc. Extensions to Teamcenter X require a Request for Quote –working with the Siemens team to identify pricing and timing.
