Company History

REMEMBER THE FIRST PLM?

In the late 1980’s, PDM was evolving to PLM, but built with less than 50% of the functionality found in today’s run-of-the-mill solution.  Most businesses kept their distance, however, as those early platforms were well beyond outside of most budgets and an insufficient amount of compelling data existed that would sanction an investment.  

Implementations were conducted from the ground-up and generally took about 1-2 years before the business was finally able to go live. 

SHERPA CORPORATION

Sherpa Systems Corporation was the first commercial PLM system developer, vendor, and implementer.  In a brand new market, Sherpa seemed to have a guaranteed and bright future, however, terminal mishandling of the company began occurring after the passing of its founder, Steve Shopbach. 

With the writing on the wall clear as day, many Sherpa employees made preparations to seek other employment opportunities.

AGILE SOFTWARE & DOMAIN SYSTEMS

3 employees departed around the same time, with plans to ally in a business partnership: Hassan Khalife, Randy Pettit, and Brian Stolle.

Brian founded Agile Software Corporation, an early Silicon Valley supply chain software developer, shortly after Hassan and Randy had co-founded Domain Systems, Inc.

Domain Systems played a vital role Agile’s growth and traction.  Agile played a vital role in Domain Systems success.  Both enjoyed a highly synergistic partnership and scaled towards the head of a growing industry.
