SmarTeam Foundation is a complete enterprise product information collaboration platform that enables teams across the extended enterprise to collaborate on product data in a concurrent engineering environment. It delivers complete organizational collaboration across all enterprise applications and is configured for optimal use of the company s IT infrastructure.
As manufacturing enterprises grow, the need to control and share vast amounts of product information grows exponentially. SmarTeam Foundation leverages a unique combination of leading-edge technologies to create a robust, secure, open, flexible and scalable collaborative product data management solution, enabling global manufacturers to achieve their goals.
SmarTeam Foundation provides secure, real-time access to product data for authorized users, from virtually anywhere on the globe. The SmarTeam repository ensures data integrity and core technologies enable global access. LDAP support enables all SmarTeam products to support authentication of users against an LDAP server (such as Windows Active Directory, IBM Directory Server and others).
SmarTeam Foundation is required for each SmarTeam user and is therefore included in all SmarTeam configuration packages.
