White Papers

For manufacturing companies, maximizing efficiency relies deeply on the IT organization. IT attempts to find creative ways to locate the needed information. Find out how Encompass helps deliver product data unmatched in quality, immediacy and easy-of-use, giving the IT organization the information they need to make smarter decisions faster.
With IT in Mind: Encompass and the Enterprise

Cisco’s parts database made it progressively problematic to uncover meaningful information for making decisions. Learn how Cisco overcame these productivity challenges with the implementation of Encompass.
Driving Reuse in the Supply Chain: The Cisco Systems Journey

In the following White Paper we will be examining a scenario around building your own search-based application vs buying a COTS solution. Taking this step is an important consideration for an organization, with the decision having a long-term impact on resources, time-to-market for new products and overall business efficiency.
Decision Support: Building vs Buying

Product Data: Eliminate the Haystack, Navigate to the Needle


Oracle Agile PLM provides some of the necessary information decision makers need to create sound conclusions. However, PLM does not offer the full spectrum of data users need. See how Encompass Product Navigation goes beyond PLM to gather complete information for decision-making.
Encompass Product Navigation – Agile PLM Brief

The best practice for Step One of PLM is to understand what product data you have and what condition it is in, prior to migrating it into the system. It’s critical to see the product data in the various systems before putting in the time and effort to migrate it. Read how Encompass gives you a unified view of your product data before you start your data migration.
