In our case - and in the case[s] of many of our customers, many of whom ARE
banks or interbank clearing houses, government departments, etc. - they would
not [be allowed to] trust the security unless it was implemented in our own product
(HSMs and HSM servers).

Shy of that, the auditors would not permit our data to live outside our own control.
Same for many of our big customers. They have security requirements that make
the opening scenes of Mission Impossible movies look tame.

On the third hand, I expect that we are already partnering (or in the investigatory
stages of it) with companies like yours, because we kinda hafta walk the talk
when we promote our brand of 'special sauce' for securing "apps-as-a-service",
cloud computing, etc. So I expect we'll soon be trialling some of our documentation
outside our perimeter. Might already be doing so, but it would be another division
taking that plunge - no word has trickled to me.

If there's eventually a report and recommendations forthcoming, and if it's not
stamped "Eyes Only - Burn before Reading", then I'll summarize for the list.

Kevin asked:

"When you say "online" do you mean:

a) the customer runs a server, and their personnel access the content via a browser interface through their intranet and extranet?
or
b) you provide the server-side app(s) and storage, and the customer accesses their own stuff via browser ?"

It's B. Software-as-a-Service. No client installation. Banking-level security. Companies can choose to upload files to our secure servers or create files that are links to files on their own web or ftp servers.

Caveat: I work for an online PLM app (Arena). Ours is aimed at small-to-medium businesses while Agile is for the monster companies.

Ours is a subscription-based model for BOM and Change Management. A lot of our customers do use it for Doc Control, and our file management is quite robust. Users can make a file an "item", thereby applying revision control. And you can choose to enforce Change Control at the In Design or In Production stage of the item lifecycle--setting up Change Control Boards for approval of new revisions.

Agile works in very much the same way, but their online offering was shelved when Oracle bought them. I believe they are bringing it back now.

Sorry for any perceived plugging--feel free to contact me off list if you want any more PLM info.
