The Aras Innovator business is definitely growing. And we can see that as planned when I started working on this solution, this is not a solution dedicated for a certain size or type of company. This is a framework with pre-defined business models fitting a lot of basic requirements from the industry. The of most of our deployment is to quickly provide features that are robust, based on business standards at a low cost. And then, the Aras Innovator framework becomes an enabler allowing the company to become creative or just allowing them to include their best practices in the solution instead of being just industrial followers by implementing the standards provided by an editor. And this is where we (Aras and the integrator like Minerva) definitely need hands.
Aras is a cool place to work at
I’ve been several times at Aras in Andover, MA. I remember back in 2009 when I first came to the Aras Office for my very first training on the solution. Several minutes after I came. Some guy I didn’t really came to talk to me about how Aras could have great opportunities in France. Unfortunately I had to stop the conversation pretty quickly as the training was starting. Looking at Aras website again a little bit later I realized that “this guy” was Peter Schroer, the CEO of the company. Since then, many times I’ve been able to exchange with Peter, and it’s great to know that the CEO of this company is all about continuously creating value for Aras Innovator without going crazy about sexy marketing trends which are not realistic. He focuses on providing real value to the Aras customers. Year after year, the team at Aras is getting bigger, I could see a lot more new young faces these last two years ( oh yes, I may be the only french guy to go skiing in New Hampshire every year). This must be a really nice place to work at!
Integrators can work with very large account
That’s the really surprising thing that I’m living at Minerva. We are pretty small for a service company. But we have chosen the right technology for our customers allowing us to deliver more with less ressources. And it works with large account. Our customers are some of the largest industrial companies in Northern Europe. What you develop when you work for Minerva impacts a lot of people and walking in some large engineering department and watching people validating workflows activities you have set up a few month earlier is quite exciting. Next thing you know, some guys in China and Brazil are doing the same actions at the same time. Aras really help us to make our work effective for our customers.
