HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, today launched the 1PLMCloud solution that helps manufacturing companies transform their computer-aided design (CAD) and product lifecycle management (PLM) infrastructure into an on-demand, scalable and agile environment to drive the business innovation needed for the new normal.
Traditionally, manufacturing organizations have been cautious with cloud migration of CAD and PLM applications due to concerns over performance, data security, reliability and compliance. However, this has changed with product engineering teams getting severely disrupted during the global pandemic and remote working becoming an accepted practice.
To assist companies around the world, HCL has combined its decades of engineering system experience and strong partnerships with software, graphics technology and cloud infrastructure providers to create 1PLMCloud, which helps manufacturing enterprises navigate their CAD and PLM cloud journey.
The solution’s service catalog provides the right mix of services to help enterprises plan the best cloud strategy for their business. By facilitating the setup of right-sized infrastructure, the solution helps meet an enterprise’s current needs and provides on-demand agility and scalability to meet varying business demands. By simplifying the application landscape, the solution helps in lowering the total cost of ownership of IT infrastructure management and support of CAD and PLM applications.
One of the main collaborations in 1PLMCloud, which strengthens the solution capabilities and helps realize its potential is the partnership between HCL, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and NVIDIA. 1PLMCloud leverages Amazon AppStream 2.0 on the Graphics G4 instance, which includes the NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPU and Quadro technology, enabling fast, secure and high-performance CAD and PLM applications on the cloud and providing a seamless experience to the engineering community.
