Rijswijk, The Netherlands – August 7, 2014 – BlueCielo ECM Solutions, the leading global software company offering Engineering Content Management (ECM) and Asset Information Management (AIM) solutions, announced today that it has released the BlueCielo Meridian 2014 Suite. The 2014 release offers easy central deployment and global roll-out, with extended audit trails, seamless dashboard integrations and support for the latest (CAD) authoring applications.
BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise 2014
BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise is an Engineering Content Management and Collaboration software solution designed to optimise business processes related to the creation, collaboration, distribution and management of 2D and 3D CAD engineering data plus all other document formats. BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise creates the ultimate CAD-independent collaboration platform that connects people and links engineering content to the enterprise by leveraging design-related information – from different authoring systems, throughout the asset lifecycle.
BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise 2014 offers various enhancements for central deployment scenarios including Citrix and use of the authoring web access client, focused on handling plant modification engineering projects. To facilitate central deployment, use of 64bit server environments has been improved through the introduction of Hypertrieve 5 which improves the overall user experience of the system. Efficiency in global roll-out is improved though the combination of BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise, BlueCielo Meridian Explorer and the BlueCielo Publisher into a single setup with central user management and extended audit trail functionality.
