Technology Focus: Cloud-Based Design and Remote Collaboration

The past year has pushed cloud adoption efforts to the top of many to-do lists in our industry.

While several major software vendors in the space have been touting cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings for years, pace of adoption had been slow. Forced work-from-home scenarios suddenly shifted those projects into high gear.

In this Special Focus Issue, we examine some of the key technologies that enable cloud-based design and simulation, as well as remote collaboration, in the engineering space.

Inside This Issue:

Thick Client, Thin Client and Clientless CAD

Different shades of cloud solutions emerge as vendors offer more than desktop CAD. 

Remote Work is Here to Stay

Companies eye virtual workstation capabilities to support remote teams with real-time performance for graphics-intensive engineering applications. 

Democratizing Simulation: Job Well Done or Unfinished Task?

Designer-friendly tools are on the rise, but some make the establishment uneasy.
