Right Hemisphere‚Â® announced that SAP AG has licensed and will integrate Right Hemisphere‚â€™s 2D and 3D visualization technology into the SAP PLM Solution. The visualization technology will enable viewing, collaborating and publishing graphical product data for SAP‚â€™s next generation of enterprise applications.
The next release of SAP‚Â® Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM), due later this year, will be the first application with this addition of 2D and 3D product graphics authoring, management and publishing capabilities. The combined programs will help to unify key product data and eliminate some of the inefficiencies and duplication of effort that occur downstream in the enterprise.
With Deep Server software integrated into a SAP IT infrastructure, you get a holistic and visual anytime, anywhere view of product line data, including pricing, ordering, support and service information. Deep Server can automatically merge visual data from engineering and text-based business data from SAP applications. Deep Server can extract and receive computer-aided design (CAD) metadata, bill of materials (BOM) structures, and CAD geometry files stored in SAP PLM application-based systems. After extracting data from SAP PLM, Deep Server can generate lightweight 3D product models, combine these models with associated SAP ERP application-based product data, generate graphic derivatives and collaborative 3D documents, and import all of those files and documents back into SAP PLM. The imported data will also be associated with the parent CAD data records.
Right Hemisphere‚â€™s Deep Server software can also combine text and visual data, and publish it into a variety of outputs including HTML, Microsoft‚Â® Office‚Â® and Adobe‚Â® PDF‚Â® files.
