Aras, which offers a low-code platform with applications to design, build and operate complex products, is accelerating its agile release schedule. This shift builds on Aras’ speed and value of upgrades by enabling subscribers to rapidly deploy and realize the benefits of new capabilities.
Starting with Aras Innovator 14, new platform features, plus updates to applications, connectors or platform components, will be released together every 5 weeks. This agile schedule empowers global enterprises to increase business resiliency by adapting to new digital priorities, unforeseen circumstances and changing business conditions, all while maintaining flexibility to validate and adopt new capabilities on their own timeline.
“Our new release schedule is all about providing greater flexibility and agility for our subscribers,” says John Sperling, senior vice president of Product Management. “A rapid cadence of feature releases is both a market differentiator and a testament to the agility of our platform and business model. We’re enabling our subscribers to adopt new functionality faster, with less effort and risk to business operations.”
Aras is also introducing platform components, which bolster Aras’ agile release schedule by enabling subscribers to selectively update portions of their ecosystem at an even faster pace. Current platform components include Enterprise Search and 3D Visualization.
“Our platform components can be installed and upgraded independently of the rest of the platform, providing our subscribers with greater flexibility to keep pace with fast-changing technology,” said Sperling.
An organization’s ability to continually adapt is critical to staying current with evolving digital processes. Aras’ low-code platform and open architecture, combined with the company’s agile release schedule, empower organizations to quickly adapt to new processes, increase business resiliency and meet the demands of the most complex scenarios.
