Throughout 2017, Arena continued to innovate with significant enhancements to PLM processes and compliance in quality management systems (QMS), while significantly increasing capabilities in application lifecycle management (ALM). Investments in several critical areas, including process visibility, collaboration, and cost management, strengthened the design and development foundation on which Arena’s customers and extended supply chains rely.
New Product Capabilities in 2017 included:
- Advanced Change Processes: Added key capabilities to automate, simplify, and streamline review processes for increasingly complex and distributed product teams.
- Connected Business Flows: Increased visibility with better product process workflows between Arena and upstream systems to accelerate issue resolution.
- Better Alignment with Regulatory Standards: Introduced training enhancements to demonstrate proficiency with procedures to support updated regulatory standards such as ISO 13485:2016.
- More Flexible Cost Analysis: Enabled product teams to better track unlimited cost types for improved analysis without being subject to revision control.
- Enriched Data Migration: Created more sophisticated and efficient data migration capabilities to help customers go live faster.
“Our development team was laser-focused this year on making it easier for our customers to get their complex products to market, while improving their ability to quickly scale in today’s demanding, global marketplace,” said Steve Chalgren, EVP, Product Management and Chief Strategy Officer at Arena. “The customer response to these enhancements has been tremendous, and we are committed to continue innovating in 2018 with new products and even greater improvements to our solution platform.”
