UGS Announces Full Support for Teamcenter on HP Integrity Servers

FOR RELEASE Tuesday, April 24, 2007

PLANO, Texas – UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that Teamcenter®, the company’s comprehensive portfolio of PLM software, is now available on HP Integrity servers.  The combination of UGS’ industry leading software with HP Integrity servers offers a state-of-the-art PLM solution for new customers.  It also offers an alternate path for HP PA-RISC server customers migrating their existing PLM or product data management (PDM) system to 64-bit Intel® Itanium® 2-based HP Integrity servers.

“The constant and accelerating evolution of the global business environment requires companies to continually ensure they are leveraging PLM technology for optimal value,” said Chris Kelley, vice president of Partners & Platforms, UGS.  “By working closely with world-class partners like HP, UGS is demonstrating its commitment to supporting all of its software offerings in the environments most companies desire and facilitate a seamless transition of existing PLM and PDM systems to those environments.”

In order to support this transition for users of Teamcenter and other PLM/PDM systems – and to continue to set the pace for the PLM industry with leading edge solutions – UGS completely ported and thoroughly tested Teamcenter on HP Integrity servers to ensure its customers would experience the same high level of quality to which they have become accustomed.

“A clear management path is the cornerstone of any high-performance computing PLM solution,” said Winston Prather, vice president & general manager, High Performance Technical Computing, HP.  “UGS’ support for Teamcenter on HP Integrity servers provides customers with a tested solution to achieve a better return on their IT investments while ensuring the high availability and simplified management the platform is known for.”

“For UGS customers looking for a flexible, standards-based alternative to their RISC architectures running mission critical databases, the solution is the combination of HP Integrity servers running Intel Itanium® 2 processors,” said Diane Bryant, Intel Vice President, Digital Enterprise Group.  “This combination provides unprecedented flexibility, performance and choice of operating system including HP-UX and Microsoft Windows Server 2003.”
