The real event for Solid Edge will be the 2012 Solid edge University in Nashville in a little over a month. PLM World is primarily NX and as the title says PLM in all it's Siemens iterations.

There is a profound sense of satisfaction as I regard the upcoming event and I remember where we were just a few short years ago. Look for some great announcements both in the improvement of the software itself and in the fledgling SE ecosphere which is about to take offand provide adjuncts to SE that have been overdue.

It has taken longer than I would have thought for Siemens to take a fairly stagnant UGS corporate philosophy and turn it around. But they are and Siemens did not buy UGS just to own it. They fully intend to develop best in class software for both both large and SMB outfits.

No cloud, best in class direct editing, no upcoming kernal change, a company that actively incorporates user needs and requests into their software, a company concerned with best in class MCAD.

There is a big shakeout just really getting started in MCAD right now and SE 2012 University will be where you can find out a lot about the company that is going to win. It is my opinion that anyone who thinks it is the status quo at Solid Edge nowadays is either in denial or not conversant enough with the nuts and bolts of Cad to have a valid opinion.

Can you tell I am excited and look forward to SE U 2012?
