One week before ACE 2014 in Chicago !

Posted on April 21, 2014

Almost three month without writing an Article. That’s a lot, and that reflects how much work we have these days. Minerva is significantly growing in terms of Aras Innovator related activities which is a very good sign for the future. Our actual customers are helping us to convince other that Aras Innovator is more than PLM. Next week I’ll be at the Aras Community Event 2014 which comes back to Chicago after 3 years being held in Detroit. Chicago was in 2010 my first Aras Community Event. I received there the Aras Collaborate & Contribute Award in recognition of some Open Source projects that I was running at that time. Since then, we have received another award the next year and also one of our customer got one. So, once again, Aras need your votes to select the winners. Please vote for your favorite projects!
