Why did we wrote a white paper on the uses of the Cloud in the Industry?

“Adopting the Cloud means choosing to gain in efficiency and agility to free up human resources for more innovation and responsibility.”

75% of companies in the world already use applications on the Cloud on a daily basis, through social networks, messaging or online collaborative platforms (source: CimData, Gartner, IDC). Reliable, agile and efficient, the Cloud is attracting a growing number of companies, especially start-ups, ETIs and SMEs in the engineering and product design sectors. As the leading Dassault Systèmes reseller worldwide, CENIT-KEONYS has been supporting companies of all sizes and in all sectors in their digital transformation and currently in their transition to the Cloud for more than thirty years. The objective of this white paper is to propose a concrete and didactic guide to help manufacturers ask themselves the right questions about the adoption of the Cloud.

The Cloud, a driver of collaborative innovation

We see that the Cloud can play a crucial role for our customers in terms of efficiency and profitability.

“The industry is embracing these new uses to revolutionize access to product design, simulation and production planning solutions,” said Martin Thiel, Senior Vice-President, WorldWide 3DS-PLM at CENIT. “It is no longer necessary to install the software on premise, it is accessible via the Internet, by subscription, via one click. No more IT infrastructure costs, long deployment times and working in silos: the way to agility and innovation is in the Cloud.”

Companies that have embraced the digital transformation enjoy a much greater capacity for innovation thanks to process optimization and extended collaboration on a platform that gathers the expertise of its community. Reliable and agile, the Cloud is attracting a growing number of companies, especially start-ups, ETIs and SMEs in the engineering and product design sectors.

“Thanks to the Cloud, updates are made in real time and all production or business departments have the applications and data they need at their disposal,” said David Chassan, Chief Strategy Officer at 3DS OUTSCALE, the Cloud subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes. “Employees can pursue their missions and projects from home. In addition, storage capacity and data security are fully managed by the cloud provider. »

Refocusing on your core business

The Cloud Boom is still going strong. According to a Gartner study, the global market for public cloud services is expected to grow by 17% in 2020 to reach $266.4 billion, compared to $227.8 billion in 2019. Software as a Service (SaaS) is expected to remain the most dynamic market segment with estimated spending of $116 billion in 2020 and $151 billion in 2022 due to the flexibility offered by subscription-based software. “Adopting the Cloud means choosing to become more efficient and agile in order to free up human resources for more innovation and responsibility,” concludes David Chassan.

Concrete testimonials from industry and academics

Do all companies have the cultural maturity to deploy PLM in the cloud? “It is by questioning its processes and resources that the company becomes aware of its level of maturity. Going towards the Cloud is more than just installing new software. The company is engaged in a deep and disruptive transformation”, explains Martin Grunau, Managing Director France of KEONYS.

We have therefore designed this book based on studies, expert testimonials and feedback from our customers; in France, with Lycée Louis Armand, BoostAeroSpace, FLYING WHALES, Watt & Well and in Germany with TDM Systems and yuri. You will discover their “Cloud click”, but also their fears and preconceived ideas as well as a summary of their benefits associated with the adoption of the Cloud.

Saas, PaaS, IaaS, Sovereign Cloud, Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud… as soon as you start talking about the Cloud, you quickly find yourself invaded by many questions. What is the meaning and use for the industrial user? We offer you clear and concrete answers on three fundamental axes:

  • What is the Cloud?
  • The Cloud, why is the industry getting involved?
  • PLM on the Cloud, how is it deployed? with 10 questions to ask yourself before adopting it
