Analyst(s): Kevin Prouty


Motiva Software, a small Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) vendor from San Diego, CA, has shut its doors. While no one from the company has officially declared Motiva dead, its phone system states it has ceased operations. The demise of Motiva has left several customers, including a large tire manufacturer, in the dark about the future of its investment in Motiva products. More than likely, someone will come in and purchase Motiva's software assets, but that someone may be one of Motiva's rivals solely interested in putting the products in a deep dark hole.
