The Autumn 2014 issue of Prime is out now, focusing on Microsoft technology in discrete and process manufacturing. In this edition, we find out how aircraft and industrial engine manufacturer ITP is using Siemens PLM Software solutions to help it double its sales to reach an annual turnover of €1 billion.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Rebecca Lambert speaks to Bernard Charlès, the inspiring CEO of Dassault Systèmes, about how the ‘experience economy’ is changing everything about the way we do business. Prime also investigates how Microsoft is helping companies improve enterprise-wide collaboration to boost innovation in the life sciences industry.
