Technology Focus: Cloud-Based Design and Remote Collaboration
April 23, 2021
The past year has pushed cloud adoption efforts to the top of many to-do lists in our industry.
While several major software vendors in the space have been touting cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings for years, pace of adoption had been slow. Forced work-from-home scenarios suddenly shifted those projects into high gear.
In this Special Focus Issue, we examine some of the key technologies that enable cloud-based design and simulation, as well as remote collaboration, in the engineering space.
