Re: Design Software: Integrated CAD & CAE Tools

I'm interested in making the "design-to-market" processes as accessible to suburban and rural areas as possible.  I need to start cheap, but not foolish.

I'm considering some sort of PLM solution that will incorporate CAD and CAE.  I may consider cloud-based as far as the environment goes although IP protection, performance, disaster recovery and business resumption are all considerations I'm factoring in.

So far, I've had a look at Dassault's CATIA and ENOVIA solutions. I have a relationship with a SolidWorks vendor already, so I'm leaning in that direction.  Any other considerations?  My biggest concern is integration and seamless performance through all the steps in the design-engineering-testing-marketing set of processes.
