There is no denying that global business has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many employees from start-ups to large enterprises have been forced to move to completely remote work. How can companies drive business continuity during these unprecedented circumstances?

The need for real-time collaboration, data access and information sharing is critical when dispersed employees are working remotely from different locations. Digital continuity with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud offers both flexibility and fast deployment. The cloud solves the IT infrastructure problem many businesses face today by offering a real-time vision of business activity and the overall ecosystem from engineering to sales to marketing. Through the cloud, employees and partners can communicate and cooperate in a wide array of tasks including design, testing, validation and more.

We have put together a selection of the top posts on the cloud that demonstrate how diverse industries are able to use the capabilities of the cloud to enhance their product development and delivery. Discover more on how the cloud can improve execution, accelerate innovation and bring together all aspects of business on a single collaborative platform. We know that business must go on, and this has triggered many companies to seek a path to quickly transform their processes so their teams can work productively from home. We offer a selection of cloud readings below.

Digital Manufacturing Has Its Head in the Cloud

What happens on the factory floor doesn’t stay only there, but is uploaded as data to the cloud for validation, visibility, and analytic crunching to find patterns, make predictions, and prescribe actions. Cloud providers are now offering applications on their platforms to execute digital manufacturing across the entire product lifecycle, from design through manufacturing execution and logistics.

Taking Simulation to the Next Level With Cloud Computing

Companies of all sizes are moving to the cloud, taking advantage of a variety of benefits. Many companies initially investigate the cloud to save money. Others want to focus their precious resources on designing and delivering innovative products instead of developing and supporting IT infrastructure.

Machine Learning in the Cloud

Find yourself making the same mistakes over and over again? It’s only human, which is why product developers are turning to machine learning in the cloud. It’s a way to not only learn through past mistakes, but perhaps more critically, to remember those learnings, and apply them as appropriate during the collaborative product development process.

Cloud and Crowd: Peak Product Development

As both cloud and crowd have matured, they have provided a tremendous boon to collaborative product development. Cloud is the mechanism by which a globally dispersed ecosystem of partners can communicate and cooperate during an iterative product development process that almost always requires expertise in numerous disciplines.

Seven Reasons to Move Your PLM to the Cloud

With the advent of the cloud, we’ve entered a new IT paradigm. Simply operating a PLM system isn’t enough. After all, everyone else is using PLM, too. It’s become a minimum requirement. To keep an edge, you’ve got to leave your servers behind and embrace the cloud. Otherwise, you may have the leanest production of the 1990s, but you’ll be eating 21st century dust.

Car Makers Accelerate by Designing, Developing and Engineering in the Cloud

Speed limits keep some semblance of order on our highways. But the cloud—through its ability to flexibly host a global ecosystem of partners and suppliers to make rapid iterations during the product ideation and development process—is what helps you break speed limits to meet launch dates and revenue and quality targets in this fast-changing market.

The Easy Way to Move Your Cad to Cloud

Many companies have been slow to adopt the cloud due to potential obstacles during migration. Perhaps no obstacle is bigger than the need to handle legacy CAD data without interruption. The good news is, moving existing CAD systems data from applications such as CATIA V5 or SOLIDWORKS to the cloud is quite easy. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes readily accepts the older versions of CAD data and connects them to a cloud tenant.

How to Choose the Right Cloud with Frost & Sullivan

Digital transformation is a strategic priority across every industry.  To compete globally in new and existing markets, speed innovation and deliver products more rapidly while managing costs, a platform approach to product development – where global real-time collaboration occurs across a company’s value chain, is ideal.  When the platform is cloud-based, enterprises of all sizes can benefit quickly and with minimal IT investment.
