Veenendaal, 23 March 2020 : To-Increase, a leading global ISV and provider of solutions for Microsoft Dynamics 365, has collaborated with Siemens Digital Industries Software to facilitate the integration of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Teamcenter® product lifecycle management software in conjunction with the Teamcenter Gateway for Enterprise Applications. The add-on is available through Microsoft AppSource, an online cloud marketplace providing tailored line-of-business solutions.
This add-on, on top of the Teamcenter Gateway for Enterprise Applications, is focused on easy compatibility with Teamcenter releases in line with the evergreen nature of Dynamics 365. Leveraging Teamcenter Gateway for Enterprise Applications, a product of the Siemens Active Integration Gateway product portfolio, is an essential part of this strategy — effectively de-coupling Dynamics 365 from changes when you upgrade Teamcenter to a newer version.
Deploying this add-on results in a scalable and robust solution using the latest best practices and tools, from both Siemens and Microsoft. It supports the flow of products, product structures, and related information out-of-the-box, and requires only configuration to enrich the solution footprint; no additional coding or development support is required.
“We are pleased that our joint efforts result in a minimal time-to-value experience for customers that leverage the Active Integration technology to use Microsoft Dynamics 365 in line with Teamcenter,” said Daniel Hirsch, product manager for the Active Integration Gateway solution portfolio at Siemens Digital Industries Software.
“The availability of Dynamics 365 for use with Teamcenter software is an exciting development as the experts have designed it with concurrent engineering scenarios in mind,” said Herbert van de Ridder, product manager, To-Increase. “As a result, it allows a seamless flow of information from the early stages of product development to the phasing out of a product, including all the steps in between. The functional concept remains unchanged for this update as it has proven itself over the years in multiple implementations, ranging from a single site to large multi-site operations.”
Kirsten Edmondson Wolfe, Senior Director, Microsoft AppSource Product Marketing for Microsoft Corp. said, “We’re happy to welcome Siemens and its Teamcenter software to Microsoft AppSource, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Microsoft AppSource offers partner solutions such as Teamcenter Gateway from To-Increase and Siemens to help customers meet their needs faster.”
To-Increase is a leader in integrating PLM and PDM solutions to Dynamics 365, and therefore has been a go-to-partner for many years when it comes to interoperability between Teamcenter and Dynamics 365. With the changes introduced in this update, it is an even more attractive offering to customers—both new and existing.
