PTC has announced the acquisition of pure-systems, a leading provider of software and product variant management solutions. Manufacturing companies use pure-systems' pure::variants solution to efficiently manage the different software variants and systems engineering elements in their product configurations.
Prior to this acquisition, PTC and pure-systems had already been working closely together. The pure::variants tool is already integrated and complements Codebeamer, PTC's application lifecycle management (ALM) solution. It also reinforces Windchill, PTC's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. The addition of pure-systems' technologies should enable PTC to strengthen its leadership position in the fast-growing ALM market, stimulate market growth, and develop and consolidate relationships with customers from highly regulated sectors including automotive, aerospace and medical device manufacturers, who are increasingly integrating software components into their product designs.
"The acquisition of pure-systems will bring important functionalities to our suite of ALM solutions, essential for manufacturers worldwidesays Jim Heppelmann, CEO of PTC. Manufacturers are increasingly turning to software to differentiate their products and offer different versions to satisfy the full range of customer needs. In particular, automakers investing heavily in software-defined vehicles need tightly integrated ALM and software variant management solutions to plan and deliver the different software configurations that power their vehicle range. At this level, we believe that the combination of Codebeamer and pure::variants positions PTC as a leading provider of solutions to drive software requirements, configurations, testing and validation of solutions to market."
"The pure-systems team is delighted to join PTC and continue to meet the needs of our industrial customers for software variant management solutions, says Danilo Beuche, CEO of pure-systems. PTC shares our interest in this critical need of companies that manufacture complex and highly regulated products, and joins us in the importance of adopting an open ecosystem approach. We're proud of what the pure-systems team has accomplished for our customers to date, and we're delighted to be joining PTC's ALM business to continue building our position in this important market."
