Arena Solutions Wins 2016-17 Cloud Award

Now entering its seventh year, the cloud computing awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. The awards program accepts entries from across the globe, from organizations of any size.

Said Kent Killmer, vice president of marketing at Arena, “We were the first to offer true cloud-based PLM, and we continue our legacy of innovation by being the first to offer a unified, multi-tenant SaaS cloud-based product development platform.”

Unlike stand-alone solutions which trap information within a silo accessed by only a few key people, Arena provides a comprehensive, cloud-based product development platform that unites all engineering, quality, manufacturing and operation disciplines in the creation of innovative connected products. In the Fall of 2016, the company added ALM (application lifecycle management) capabilities with Arena Verify, which provides requirements, issue, bug and hardware defect management in a holistic product development solution that offers a unique combination of PLM, ALM, supply chain collaboration and quality management (QMS).

Arena’s product development platform links collaborative development to the product record for a continuous improvement process that brings unprecedented visibility, traceability and flexibility to all the participants in the development process. Uniting the efforts of software, firmware, mechanical and electrical engineers allows them to innovate together to identify requirements, integrate designs and improve product quality to deliver products to market faster. Arena already has more than 250 customers in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) space, demonstrating its strength among innovative companies designing complex, connected, cutting-edge products where ease of use, quality and time to market are critical.

Over 300 organizations entered the 2016-2017 Cloud Awards, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The full shortlist and winners can be viewed here: The Cloud Awards is also set to publish a research report on the state of the cloud computing industry, based on survey responses of the 2016-17 entrants.
