CAD is going Cloud and so too CATIA is now available On-Cloud, as a subscription service from Desktop Engineering Ltd. With zero implementation and infrastructure cost, and availability anytime any place, anywhere, this is the easiest way to acquire the technology. It’s cheaper than you think – from £12 per day.

The CAD World is going Cloud

There are all sorts of organisations marketing Cloud solutions – from simple storage like Dropbox, through to music streaming like iTunes or email software. In many ways these are cases where the benefit of a simple place to store things delivers real value – simplicity in managing data; easy access from anywhere in the world; low cost setup and usage.

So now it is with CAD/CAM and product data management (PDM). Once it required software purchase, considerable server hardware to store information and then all the incumbent costs of support and backup to ensure that the system was robust and accessible. Dassault Systemes now has CATIA available as an On-Cloud service from Desktop Engineering Ltd. Its gives all those benefits of a normal cloud offering where there is zero installation cost, zero backup and file storage costs, together with the ability to access it where ever you have an internet connection. All rolled into an annual service fee, this solution delivers up real savings over conventional on-premise CAD solutions. Desktop Engineering has migrated many customers to this 3DEXPERIENCE Platform solution together with new customers appreciating the simplicity of an On-Cloud CAD.

For those that need convincing, Desktop Engineering can offer low cost evaluations and migration training for existing CATIA users, in order that the benefits can be appreciated.

Desktop Engineering representatives will be at the Automechanika Birmingham Show (5-7 June) to discuss your Automotive software, training and consultancy needs. If you would like to meet up with us, register for your free entry.
