NEC Provides Obbligato for SaaS in China

- Expanding product lifecycle management cloud service -

TOKYO, Sep, 13 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced the sales launch in China of Obbligato for SaaS, NEC's product lifecycle management (PLM) cloud service, which has been adopted throughout the world.

While Asian IT markets have been growing steadily in recent years, manufacturers are rapidly expanding, aiming at developing new business, and seeing more cases where they design and develop new products to accommodate local specifications in China. This increases needs for PLM cloud services that allow an organization to efficiently and inexpensively manage technical information for products and related documents, such as design drawings, specifications, and bill of materials (BOM).

Obbligato for SaaS, capitalizes on the track record and knowledge of the Obbligato Series adopted by more than 850 global companies. This leading PLM software in Japan(1) has defined and offered standard functions for operations regarding BOM management, design change management and data loss prevention, serving as a cloud service.

Building service bases in datacenters in China enables high reliability and communication quality as a cloud service, while complying with the laws and regulations, such as the cybersecurity law, in China.

By introducing this service, companies can utilize a SaaS-type PLM cloud service at low cost and in as little as two weeks. In addition, the PLM system can be operated with fewer IT personnel because users don't need to upgrade the software or maintain the servers.

NEC will promote sales through Chinese sales agents, targeting internationally-owned manufacturers who are advancing into China, as well as local manufacturers, aiming at adoption by 100 companies over the next three years.

"Moving forward, NEC will work to provide and promote solutions to contribute to global manufacturing infrastructure and process transformation," said Miwako Satou, General Manager, Services and Technologies Division, NEC Corporation.
