Aerospace Collaboration… in the Cloud, of course!

By Aurelien

In my previous post from our Farnborough series, I mentioned the CRESCENDO project as an insight into the future of modeling and simulation of digital aircrafts. Now, how about collaboration? Collaboration is indeed key when it comes to complex multi-tier supply chains such as in the Aerospace industry. And in order to get a single source of truth, cloud-based collaboration is a must. For that matter, BoostAeroSpace is another great European project fostering cloud-based collaboration for the Aerospace industry (you can also follow @BoostAeroSpace).

Better than any amount of words, check out the video below to see what we mean by a Collaborative 3D Experience in the Aerospace industry, from the passenger experience to the airline operator and to the aircraft manufacturer. All of it happening in the cloud, of course ;)

What do you think? Wouldn’t it be awesome if a wish you’d share in an online community would turn into reality in the next manufactured aircraft?

The Cloud: Easier, Better, Together

By Remi

cloud computing dassault systemesA lot of fuss is happening right now on the Web with the launch of Google +, the company’s social network. But if you dig deeper than a mere battle between social networks, you realize that it’s the entire computing experience which is going on the Cloud: social activities, alright, but also file sharing, work spaces and other services are all more and more on the Cloud.

But think about it… What’s the Cloud goal but to bring people closer? Social networks such as Facebook are the tip of the iceberg and represent it perfectly: it brings the social back! :-)

Cloud: the Bigger Picture

Of course it’s the same for the CAD and PLM industries. More than ever, people need to work together from different places and different workstations. Thus, there is a double objective: facilitate the work environment and share with others. Oleg Shilovitsky stated rightfully that we should “work together without thinking about how collaborative or social a particular software is performing”.

My point is that if it’s got to be natural, it’s got to be easier, simpler and a part of a whole system that drives the work experience. Generation Z is the only one (so far) which is born in that kind of environment and for them it will be natural to have everything in one place, easily. And eventually, that’s where Clouds are all about I guess…

V6 on the Cloud!

Dassault Systemes Application Innovation Summit

Dominique Florack @ 3DS Application Innovation Summit

As announced earlier, Dassault Systemes’ Application Innovation Summit brought a lot of surprises. But there’s one I thought you’d like very much: V6 is going on the cloud.

Right from the beginning, Dominique Florack, our Senior EVP Products Research & Development, pointed out the rise of Cloud Computing as a major trend of the industry. With increasing use of mobile devices which power grows as fast as Warner Bros’ Roadrunner, Cloud Computing is the thing we have to care about.

Cloud Computing Dassault SystemesAs such, 3DS had to review its entire approach to implementing solutions in customers’ companies. The old way was to deploy products on every computer. Needless to say it takes time: 12 months to the best, 18 on average. The new way is about adopting the product.

Ok I bet it’s tough to get it so I’m gonna give you an example… Say you need 3DVIA Studio. You simply go to our AppStore, buy it and within seconds (and by seconds, I mean seconds) and without any previous installation, it runs on your computer. Via the Cloud.

What’s the common expression for that kind of stuff again? It rocks!!

Don’t you love it? :-)
