First Public Showing of Cloud-based Product Data Access to Siemens PLM Community

At the showcase, attendees and SolidEdge Partners will be able to see Inforbix in action.

Inforbix ( will present and demonstrate its product data access apps June 11-13 at Solid Edge® University 2012 Technology Showcase in Nashville, Tennessee.

Inforbix is a cloud solution that aggregates and exposes on-premise product data from multiple sources and locations without actually touching, moving, or migrating files to the cloud. Users access Inforbix with any standard web browser. It is simple to deploy, secure, and both fun and easy to use.

“We are excited to introduce Inforbix to the Siemens community at Solid Edge University 2012,” said CEO Oleg Shilovitsky. “We believe there is a growing affinity among Siemens customers, partners, and Inforbix users. This community has always been among the first to adopt new products that are cost effective and easy to use, and which make their products more competitive. At Solid Edge University 2012, Siemens users will learn more about Inforbix and confirm that Inforbix delivers these benefits. We are pleased to share Inforbix with the Siemens community.”

At the showcase, attendees and SolidEdge Partners will be able to see Inforbix in action. One-on-one meetings will allow customers and partners to ask detailed questions in order to learn how Inforbix helps manufacturing companies make better use of their product data using Inforbix product data apps.

Manufacturing companies are drowning in the growing amount of product data generated and found within different file types, sources, and company data-silos. They are increasingly using a mix of vendor packages and solutions, all of which generate, contain, manage, or store product data, creating a hodgepodge of resources to comb through. Product data generated in a typical manufacturing company can be both structured (valuable BOM and assembly information spread out across different CAD drawings) and structured (CAD drawings within a PDM or PLM system). Inforbix Apps are tools that address specific product data tasks such as finding, re-using, and sharing product data.

Inforbix can access product data within CAD, PDM, and PLM systems and make it available in meaningful ways to CAD and non-CAD users. All Inforbix apps utilize product data semantics technology that automatically infer relationships between disparate sources of data. For example, Inforbix can semantically connect or link SolidEdge CAD assemblies with a related Excel or PDF file containing a BOM table stored on a file server in another department.

Boston-based Inforbix is a software company founded in 2010 that addresses product data challenges within manufacturing companies asking: “There’s lots of data everywhere. How can I access it all with a single solution?”

The Inforbix mission is to develop and market industry-leading software solutions that significantly improve productivity by streamlining work and reducing time involved in accessing and sharing product data. Inforbix develops intelligent apps for intelligent data access. Apps offered are simple tools that address specific product data tasks such as searching and accessing product data, organizing and presenting product data, and visualizing product data trends and patterns.

The underlying power behind Inforbix’s apps is provided by Inforbix’s semantic technology. It automatically finds and infers relationships between disparate sources of structured and unstructured product data. By linking and connecting related product data, Inforbix provides users with the ability to locate and access product data quickly and thoroughly.

PDM and PLM systems offer search, but success depends on properly structured and consistent data formats, and those systems can only search within their own infrastructure. Inforbix is product data agnostic: it can access structured and unstructured data located anywhere in a manufacturing company (CAD files, Excels, PDM, PLM, ERP, CRM and more). Inforbix apps are not meant to replace Product Data Management (PDM) systems; they will co-exist and extract data from them. However, for small companies without PDM systems, Inforbix apps can provide a useful and affordable alternative. For larger companies, Inforbix apps are the “glue” that connects all companywide product data together in meaningful and helpful ways. Inforbix apps are cloud-based and fast to deploy, require no data migration or maintenance, and provide data security by preserving the on-premises data without touching it or moving it into the cloud.

The primary products, Inforbix Search—which finds and accesses product data quickly and easily—and Inforbix Tables—which assists you in presenting product data in useful and meaningful ways—are but the first in series of many product data apps. The company also in January 2012 debuted the first mobile platform for using the Inforbix system, an app for the iPad. The apps require no training or prior experience to use: Inforbix access is through a web browser.

The software is priced affordably for any size manufacturing company to deploy companywide. Demo Inforbix and get personally acquainted with a new easy and seamless way to access product data in your company. Go to to give Inforbix a test drive.
