SAP is licensing and integrating Right Hemisphere’s 2-D and 3-D visualization technology into its PLM Solution to serve as the base for viewing, collaborating and publishing graphical product data. The technology will surface in the next release of SAP PLM, slated to ship later this year. The pair are also working on tighter integration between their products, which will enable SAP users to incorporate additional Right Hemisphere software products into their IT infrastructures for help with 2-D and 3-D product graphics authoring and publishing.

Deep Server automatically merges visual data from engineering and text-based data from SAP to create this holistic view.
