Case Studies of Global Virtual Engineering Environments
Track: Partner Sessions
Mobility and cloud for product development and engineering has been identified by IDC as one of top issues in main industries. It is important to understand the rapid changing technologies and capabilities (offerings) that exist and their integration into the larger world of PLM. For IT leadership, they can see the mega trends and ways to engage the business and provide innovation. For business leadership, they can see what mega trends others are looking at and seeing how they are addressing them, what discussions can they start with IT or depending on their organization structure what they can start themselves. It is important to understand the direction of these solutions as they address current and future business challenges. Many people are looking to increase awareness of capabilities and experience beyond just hardware and address these challenges with solutions. They are also looking for solution providers that have proven track record in many industries supporting engineering in relation to mobility, cloud and security and no longer wanting just piece meal offerings. These are challenging problems to solve and there is an increasing need for a trusted partner who can help customers increase business adoption, reduce time to value, lower risk and cost, all of which are focused on increasing business flexibility, product margin and share of market, while reducing time to market and enabling a global workforce.
Recent technologies from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and GPU providers have made huge advancements in the creation and access a converged modern instance of an engineering environment. This can be done with a technology called engineering Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (eVDI). One of the business values of eVDI is to enabling mobility for internal workforce as well as provide options for mobility/collaboration with contractor and partners without having to send them the actual data files. We are also seeing increase attention from many companies around trying to increase employee satisfaction, retention and recruiting by offering options for work environment without increasing risk to intellectual property. Finally graphic desktops resource are requiring increase flexibility to match changing business needs and eVDI allows for you to meet those variable needs.
