Hey Frabrizio,

Take a look at TeamPlatform, it's for teams.  In addition to collaboration / talk / project updates, there are a lot of ways to interact with people outside of the team.

You'll also find a lot of CAD management meat (ex: assembly navigation, meta-data extraction... in other words: CAD Search), and online 3D views.

Coincidentally, a new web-app, 3Dfile.io was just released this week for super-simple online 3D view sharing, including native CAD / assemblies - here's an example -- http://3dfile.io/tNN71D to check out the online 3D views.

I think "social-like" features is where a lot of these vendors are going. Given the concerns around security and IP sharing, integration with public social networking platforms is out. The idea that seems to hold weight is applying some of the conventions of social systems to PLM and CAD to facilitate collaboration and data sharing. I think that idea makes sense.

Hi Beth,

Thanks for your answer, I'll take a closer look at Kenesto.

Btw, I don't consider Sharepoint a social addition. I believe it's just a document management platform somehow repackaged with some extra "social like" features.

As far as PTC and Dassault are concerned I am still trying to understand what they are exactly doing with their products (beyond doing some shopping)

@Fabrizio: Many of the PLM vendors are adding social capabilities to their PLM platforms as well. Both PTC and Dassault, in fact, have fairly aggressive efforts around interpreting a social component to engineering collaboration and Siemens PLM Software addresses some of this via its tight integration with Microsoft SharePoint. To date, though Vuuch definitely has the lead in terms of reinterpreting the paradigm and making social a major pillar of the system. There is also a new start up called Kenesto that is tackling the collaboration component of this as a workflow problem using a familiar "email" interface and paradigm to make it an easy transition for users. All good stuff.

Hi!

Is any of you aware of Vuuch alternatives?

It seems it is the only one providing such an intimate connection between the social layer and the working contexts.

Thanks

Fabrizio

Interesting points, Vuuch. As this moves forward, what kind of adoption are you seeing, and what are the barriers to adoption. I would imagine just in terms of work habits, it will take some time before users begin to add this to their work habits.

Huh. Interesting point, Vuuch. I hadn't thought of it that way. The security on the social network sharing design information will certainly need to be better than Facebook.

Massive traction http://www.vuuch.com/customers and stay tuned for some even more interesting names.  Customers of all sizes realize that structured tools like PDM and PLM have done a good job of capturing the results of work, but they have done nothing for the ad-hoc unstructured effort, the work.  Social @ work when mixed with tools like ERP , PLM and CRM will deliver on the original promise.

Billions have been spent on ERP. PLM and CRM but people are still stuck in email.  The data is in control but the work is not.

You need to abstract the concepts of Facebook and think about how they can be applied to work.  Don't get lost in how it works in the consumer world.  Social @ work is different and one BIG differance is the connection model.  It is ok as a consumer to connect based on relationships, friendships, but this doesn't work in the workplace.  At work people are connected by the work they do.  Social @ work must be deliverable-centric.

If you use the friending model to connect people at work it results in a firehose effect http://www.vuuch.com/social-media/enterprise-social-software-project-execution-and-a-firehose/2012/03/11, also see paper by Richard Davis, stock analysis http://www.vuuch.com/social-media/chatting-with-richard-davis/2011/12/15.
