CCE Announces Oceans SDK, a first-of-its-kind Middleware to connect Enterprise Applications with CAD data assets
Farmington Hills, Michigan : CCE announces its latest innovation, Oceans SDK, to connect Enterprise Applications to CAD data assets. Oceans SDK is a first-of-its-kind technology that provides access to product data stored in CAD files via a single C++ API for all major CAD formats. Oceans SDK supports CATIA V4, CATIA V5, Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER, Autodesk Inventor, Parasolid, IGES and STEP data formats. Oceans SDK does not require a license of the CAD system to access its data.
Oceans SDK provides seamless access to critical product data stored in CAD files. Enterprise applications deployed today use innovative software architectures such as SaaS to bring the benefits of optimized and holistic workflow management applications to a wider audience within the extended enterprise. The same applications, however, are hampered by restrictive architectures and licensing requirements that prevent them from fully exploiting the CAD data assets for the benefit of everyone in the product lifecycle.
According to the recently published “Collaboration & Interoperability Market Report 2008” from Longview Advisors, use of 3D CAD data in downstream applications is increasing, with predictions of further increase as “it seems there is a continued slow migration to complete reliance on 3D CAD data in product design and engineering”. CCE believes this is the democratization of 3D data in the enterprise. Oceans SDK, with its innovative, untethered architecture, is the ideal middleware for any enterprise application wanting to integrate 3D CAD and is well suited for products such as Product Data Management (PDM) systems, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) systems, Web-based Catalogs, Sales Configuration Systems etc.
“Currently the only way enterprise applications such as PLM, ERP and MRP, can gain access to CAD-authored product data is by licensing expensive royalty-based API’s from CAD software OEM’s” says CCE’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Mr. Vinay Wagle. “Oceans SDK will provide an easy and non-royalty based solution to all such enterprise application providers, thereby providing them with a significant edge over competition” adds Vinay.
