Managing CATIA V4 Obsolescence

ITI TranscenData's Latest White Paper Outlines Five Strategies for the Last-Minute Migration

 

Milford, OH, November 3, 2011 – ITI TranscenData announced today the release of their latest White Paper Publication: Managing CATIA V4 Obsolescence: Five Strategies for the Last-Minute Migration.

For the past ten years, ITI TranscenData program teams have worked diligently to enhance their consulting services and process automation tools for solving the CATIA V4-to-V5 conversion/migration problem.  This nine-page white paper consolidates just some of the firm’s best practices, and for a limited time, will be available on a complimentary basis.

“Companies are still struggling with CATIA V4 obsolescence” explains Jamie Flerlage, ITI TranscenData Regional Director, and the author of the publication.  “As the cost to maintain software, hardware and institutional knowledge increases with each passing year, so does the risk of losing critical infrastructure components.  We have heard of companies buying hardware on eBay just to keep their legacy V4 systems alive.”

The publication not only outlines five CATIA V4 migration strategies, it also illustrates methods for opening, viewing and editing models in the absence of CATIA V4 licenses.  Readers will also gain insight for managing and mitigating risk, before, during, and after a major migration.“This is a problem that could potentially impact shareholders and taxpayers,” Flerlage explains.  “There are certainly regulations and financial penalties governing data integrity and availability.  These types of deterrents will keep manufacturers focused on solving the problem, but I also suspect that catastrophic data loss and knowledge worker attrition will push last-minute migration projects forward.”
