On-Premises Software Versus SAAS Simulation
This paper addresses the difference between on-premises software and SaaS solutions for computer-aided engineering, explaining how SaaS came to be and its key benefits.

The global computer-aided engineering (CAE) market is set to reach over $13 billion by 2026.
Advancements in automation across almost all sectors have enabled a growth in the adoption of CAE.
Automation has changed the face of product design and manufacturing processes by offering more accuracy with better efficiency. Engineers’ focus on improving productivity by enhancing the design process is driving the adoption of CAE, mainly for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA) technology.
Historically, this was facilitated by only on-premises CAE solutions. As powerful as CAE is in driving efficiency, however, the limitations in using traditional simulation solutions reduce the benefits of using this technology. To this challenge, cloud computing brings a solution.
