Teamcenter, Siemens PLM Software's digital lifecycle management software, is the world's most widely-used PLM portfolio.

"With more than one million new licenses sold in less than 15 months, Teamcenter customers continue to see unmatched value with this PLM industry- leading software," said Dr. Helmuth Ludwig, president, Siemens PLM Software. "By focusing on the global business and technical issues facing organizations, we have been able to lower the total cost of PLM ownership and thus significantly expand our Teamcenter installed base. As always, we continue to listen to the needs of the industry and add the innovative enhancements that will earn our customers' business.

"That philosophy led us to launch Teamcenter 2007 late last year with a new unified and pervasive service-oriented architecture (SOA) and easy-to-use interface that delivers comprehensive end-to-end PLM through a single source of product and process knowledge. The market reaction has been overwhelmingly positive and is helping to ensure our strong leadership position in the PLM industry."
