SAN JOSE, Calif., March 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Agile Software Corporation , a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced its plans to add the Linux open source operating system to the list of supported environments for its market leading Agile PLM solutions. In response to growing customer demand, the addition of the Linux operating system to Agile PLM will enhance flexibility, improve intellectual property security, and reduce total cost of ownership for the company's global customers.

"The addition of the Linux operating system to our Agile PLM solutions provides our customers with a robust, flexible, and secure way to share information across a global organization," said Jay Fulcher, Agile president and COO. "These capabilities will ensure that our customers maintain a competitive advantage by continuing to develop new products that meet market demand, while continuing to reduce their total cost of ownership."
