Data Interoperability / Exchange / Sharing / Archiving

Data Interoperability Solutions resolve business issues like:

  Data exchange

  Data sharing

  Data integration

  Data archival

EXPRESS Data Manager™ (EDM) offers functionality for all four domains. You may use it to build data translators/converters from one data format to another one, where one of them may be, but does not need to be an international standard, such as, ISO 10303 STEP or PLCS. You may apply EDM to share data in a common database. You may implement methods to integrate and merge data from many sources into one joint data model, for example into PLCS.  Or you may want to store your data for a long time in a durable open and standardized data format.
