Oracle Agile PLM

Oracle Agile is great for companies that need a way to manage their products and work with various resources in their department from developers, to PMs and UX designers. This is a great way to keep track of feature requests and shippable versions of the product. Implementation and user friendlessness is an issue with this tool so companies that have the budget for consulting or for additional resources to help implement and maintain will need those resources as it is necessary. Training resources should also be factored in by any institution wishing to implement this.

PTC Windchill

For larger companies that have multiple locations, it is a great tool to control the data and to get the data in the hands of the right people. If I was a startup or a smaller company, I would not use this based on the fact that most of the functionality wouldn't be used.

Cons

Oracle Agile PLM

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Agile PLM

We did not evaluate other software because Oracle Agile PLM was highly recommended by our Board of Directors. We knew of another company that used it with favorable results and felt it would help us in our management of the manufacturing process.

Return on Investment

Oracle Agile PLM

  • For us, Oracle Agile PLM did what we purchased it for: it streamlined our product lifecycle management
  • The unexpected thing was that it took 6 months from the start of the implementation to release.
  • The user adoption did not match our expectation: due to extensive training needs and the complexity of the tool, some users still don't use it

  • Time to implement
  • Data migration
  • Training of the users
