ENOVIA PLM Architecture Overview

ENOVIA PLM is a recognized leader in delivering collaborative PLM solutions. The future of PLM is about allowing the breadth and depth of collaboration for companies to carry out the business activity globally. Everyone, regardless of location or status, can collaborate across business processes using ENOVIA PLM. On a single platform, ENOVIA PLM supports Intellectual Property modeling applications like CATIA, DELMIA and SIMULIA spanning all engineering disciplines covering the entire product lifecycle.

CATIA / DELMIA / ENOVIA / SIMULIA applications are built natively on this single, open Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform. PLM Data management is supported for most mechanical, electrical, and artwork CAD tools. ENOVIA PLM gives a unified, federated view and access to Intellectual Property, whether the information is in the PLM system, another enterprise system or from an unstructured data source.
