Advances Global Leadership in Content Lifecycle Management Solutions
Flatirons Solutions, a provider of content lifecycle management (CLM) consulting, technology, and outsourcing solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, announced today that it has acquired CORENA, a European-headquartered software development house specializing in S1000D-based solutions for the aerospace, defense, marine, rail, and energy industries.
Flatirons Solutions’ acquisition of CORENA is the company’s third acquisition in the past two years, reflecting the company’s dedication to expanding the capabilities for specialized CLM solutions that enable more efficient operation of highly regulated, capital-intensive assets where material or labor productivity is a critical factor.
Organizations that rely on mission-critical data to design, manufacture, operate, or maintain complex assets — such as civil or military aircraft, trains, ships, power plants and energy equipment — are faced with increasingly complex requirements for creating, delivering, consuming, and optimizing technical content over the product and service lifecycle of these assets and across a highly fractured ecosystem.
These evolving requirements stem from new information standards such as S1000D, a shift from paper-based to electronic documentation systems, and benefits made possible by tablet devices. CORENA and Flatirons Solutions’ consistent and on-going R&D investments deliver the innovative solutions to help customers meet these complex requirements with user-friendly solutions.
“The demand for specialized CLM solutions is increasing dramatically,” said Toralf Johannessen, CEO of CORENA. “We are excited to come together with Flatirons Solutions to keep pace with increasing functional demands and geographic coverage that respond to constant change and user expectations.”
“CORENA and Flatirons Solutions bring together the most recognized and respected experts in content lifecycle management for the aerospace, aviation, and other industries,” said Geoffrey Godet, CEO of Flatirons Solutions. “Combined, we serve the world’s leading aerospace and defense manufacturers, the largest airline operators, and many defense organizations. With a presence across Asia, Europe, and the Americas, we’re pleased to reinforce around-the-clock support for mission-critical customer requirements moving toward Cloud/SaaS-based solutions demanded by today’s mobile workforce.”
