Polarion Joins Siemens PLM Software Solution Partner Program

Today, Polarion is pleased to announce that we have joined the Siemens PLM Partner Program as a Software and Technology Partner. This  follows our announcement early this year of the $10 Million Dollar investment  by the wholly-owned venture unit of Siemens AG, which is also a Polarion customer, to make the real-time synchronization of Software engineers with their Electrical- and Mechanical counterparts a reality.

As Ovum Principal Analyst Michael Azoff framed the challenge, “in product development, software changes are far more frequent than hardware changes and keeping track of which firmware belongs to which hardware component turns into a monumental exercise in version tracking and traceability.”

This challenge motivated Siemens to choose Polarion ALM as the ideal Siemens PLM companion, because our solution is uniquely architected to enable the automation of version tracking and traceability spanning all development efforts, in turn streamlining complexity and easing proof of compliance across both firmware and hardware.  Read the rest of this entry »

Morris Medical Monday: Pain Relief for Medical Device Compliance Management

With so many of our customers involved in the development of amazing new technologies and products in the medical field, we’re always interested to see stories like this recent one about a new implant technology that promises huge life quality gains for amputees.

According to this article, a revolutionary new technology being developed at London’s Royal National Orthopaedic hospital (RNOH) which recently completed a trial, allows artificial limbs to be attached directly to an amputee patient’s skeleton, giving them feeling and mobility far beyond that of today’s prosthetics. The the new implants, developed by the UCL/RNOH biomedical engineering institute and manufactured by Stanmore Implants, were inspired by research into how skin forms itself naturally around deer antlers. Although still in the trial stage, the prospect for wider roll-out should be good news for amputees.
