Right Hemisphere Joins PLM Alliance and Contributes Visualization to Alliance's ezPLM Solution

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - SAP Insider Conference -- Right Hemisphere®, the leader in visual product communication and collaboration solutions, today announced that it has joined the PLM Alliance serving SAP® PLM customers and contributed an important new component to the Alliance's ezPLM software suite. Founded by CENIT AG, CIDEON AG, DSC Software AG and .riess engineering GmbH, the PLM Alliance members share a common objective to jointly develop, market, and implement solutions surrounding SAP PLM.

"Right Hemisphere offers advanced software specifically for the SAP PLM environment and, in fact, created the visualization technology inside of SAP PLM 7.0. As a result, Right Hemisphere is a critical partner to have in the PLM Alliance and to complete the ezPLM software portfolio," said PLM Alliance Chairman and CEO of CENIT North America Horst Heckhorn. "With a visualization option in the ezPLM suite, customers now have a means to create and publish 2D and 3D graphics in lightweight formats inside of SAP PLM that support key business processes across their enterprises."

The ezPLM Visualization Package enables customers with a SAP PLM infrastructure to generate, store and deliver 2D and lightweight 3D graphics and documents from CAD models as predefined, event triggered processes. It also enables SAP customers using releases 4.7 or higher to leverage Right Hemisphere's technology for part viewing, assembly viewing and redlining. The ezPLM Visualization Package and the other ezPLM solution components are expected to be available for purchase in Q2.

"Right Hemisphere's participation in the PLM Alliance is another indication that we are very serious about being a permanent and essential component of all SAP based enterprises," said Right Hemisphere Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Business Development Rix Kramlich. "Over the last two years we have engaged with SAP, received equity funding from SAP Ventures, created a version of our flagship Deep Server software specifically for SAP PLM, completed important SAP certification work, had our visualization technology adopted by SAP and embedded in SAP PLM 7.0, and most importantly, been purchased by SAP customers. At this stage, we're forecasting strong, continued interest in our solutions."
