Fishbowl Solutions Migrates a Global Supercomputing Leader to PTC® Windchill®

Minneapolis, MN — Fishbowl Solutions, a technology consulting and software development firm supplying solutions to the manufacturing industry, announced today that it migrated a global supercomputing leader’s engineering systems from PTC’s Pro/PDM™ legacy product data management system to Windchill PDMLink®, PTC’s leading product lifecycle management (PLM) software.

The customer had been using a previous version of Pro/ENGINEER® with Pro/PDM and wanted to gain efficiencies and full product support. Achieving these goals required a migration and upgrade from Pro/PDM to Windchill PDMLink.

The customer chose Fishbowl Solutions for this project because of Fishbowl’s Pro/PDM migration experience and its deep technical expertise delivering out-of-the-box and customized Windchill and Creo™ Elements/Pro™ (formerly Pro/ENGINEER) applications. The Fishbowl team used its Data Clean Up Tools along with other Fishbowl tools in a multi-step migration process resulting in the upgrade to Windchill PDMLink. The total elapsed time for the project was two months, with the final production migration completed on a weekend to eliminate engineering downtime for the customer.
