Enable secure remote access to 3D data without sacrificing visual perfomance

Design and manufacturing companies must adapt quickly to the demands of an increasingly global and competitive economy. To speed time to market for products, they need to be able to collaborate and manage design lifecycles effectively with offshore, mobile and remote employees. At the same time, they have to maintain security and control over intellectual property even as their workforce becomes more mobile and distributed, and their computing environment becomes more diverse.

The Truth About Virtual Computing for CAD

If you're a user of graphics-intensive software such as 3D modeling, simulation and analysis, and visualization, you might be skeptical about moving to a virtualized computing environment. However, the Citrix XenDesktop virtualization solution with HDX 3D Pro graphics acceleration technology is not only delivering an excellent user experience, it's also delivering benefits that don't come standard on a traditional desktop computer.

Simplifying Product Design In A Complex World

Product design engineering has moved far beyond the confines of ever-more powerful workstations. Companies can't afford to restrict projects to using only local talent. Many are linking engineering teams around the globe to take advantage of skills in different geographies, ensuring they are cost-competitive, and collaborating more closely with customers and partners to bring the right products to market.

The director of IT at a multibillion-dollar global electronics manufacturer says, "Time-to-deliver and being competitive on a global level are our two biggest challenges. How fast can we get a product to the market from the inception of the thought, through this whole process?" But, he notes, "This specific part of our operational expense is huge," and reducing costs is a high priority.

How to Reduce Hardware & Infrastructure Costs Through Data

Regardless of what business they are in, today's IT leaders are under pressure to reduce costs while simultaneously improving service resilience, volume and quality. In this paper, we take a look at how organizations are revisiting their network and server architecture in a bid to address the cost/performance dilemma. We'll review how, in today's multi-channel and constantly connected world, they're also redefining their approach to real-time data distribution; asking if it is possible to assure high performance data distribution while minimizing the complexity, hardware and infrastructure required to deliver scalable and resilient services.

IBM Smarter Storage, an integral part of IBM Smarter Computing

The traditional approach to storage is no longer sustainable. Simply adding disks to contain huge and rapidly growing volumes of data has consequences that no organization should carry. And soon it will reach a level that no organization can carry. The traditional approach runs up hardware costs and gobbles up data center square footage. It racks up power and cooling bills as it wastes energy resources. It burdens IT staff with its complexity. Meanwhile, storage budgets remain flat, making hardware, real estate, utilities and staff harder than ever to come by.
