(Eng) Aras Collaborate & Contribute Award 2012

Posted on April 4, 2012

With the upcoming Aras Community Event 2012 in Detroit, MI starting on may 1st, the vote  for the Aras Collaborate & Contribute award has been launched. This award is mainly rewarding the work that has been done in order to improve the Aras Innovator experience by providing shared solutions to the community. These new solutions are mainly coming from customer projects. But sometimes it also comes from partners who want to bring something new, either to help companies to discover the project like a language pack (italian has been made by Focus PLM this year) or to bring some new fresh feature like we did with our Alternative Structure Browser or more recently with our  Excelator project which allows to edit Innovator’s data in Excel. We won that price two years ago (through our french branch) with our Aras2UML project which was converting Aras Innovator Datamodel into a UML Diagram (That project is still maintained if you want to try it).

Without further due, here are the nominees for the 2012 Aras Collaborate & Contribute Award. Please vote for the 3 best solutions and share the survey!
