Digital Twins offer the possibility to simulate the behavior of physical assets, to monitor them during operation and to continuously improve them. The data and models from planning and development form the context in which the operating data can be interpreted correctly. Putting them together from the wealth of available information is an essential prerequisite for the use of digital twin applications.
Now that the SAMPL project has been successfully completed, PROSTEP has made the blockchain-based solution for the forgery-proof exchange of 3D print data part of its consulting portfolio. In an online discussion called TechTALK, our experts informed customers and interested parties about the blockchain and possible use cases in the PLM environment.
Short-time work and home office determine everyday working life in the Corona pandemic. Nevertheless, the OpenDESC team at PROSTEP continues to support customers around the clock in the conversion, migration and transfer of their CAD and PLM data. We have expanded our software environment to meet the growing demand for our cloud-based OpenDESC.com service.
By Karsten Theis In the last newsletter, I wrote "To stand still is no option for us" with reference to the difficulties facing the management of companies in an age of global uncertainties. And then came the lockdown and suddenly (almost) everything ground to a halt. Admittedly, the coronavirus pandemic was not entirely unforeseeable, but we were unprepared for the scale with which it hit us. I do, however, feel that one point I made has been confirmed: The situation can only be mastered using an agile approach. And with an even greater level of digitalization, I would now add.
OpenDXM GlobalX from the cloud is particularly suitable for companies that want to use a secure IT infrastructure for data exchange without any need to implement and operate their own IT team. Cloud deployment makes it possible for the data exchange platform to go live quickly at a reasonable and clearly calculable cost. Both the application itself and the infrastructure meet all the requirements placed on them by customer and supplier contracts in terms of certification according to ISO 27001, GDPR compliance, etc.
PROSTEP's Secure Data Exchange Platform, OpenDXM GlobalX Gets Industry Award
PROSTEP is a Platinum sponsor at this year?s SIEMENS Realize Live 2020 Virtual event. The online event happening on June 23-24, 2020, will allow PROSTEP to provide a 'virtual meeting room' where attendees can login, hear discussions and see live presentations and demos on PLM thought leadership.
OpenDXM GlobalX from the cloud not only offers customers a modular and scalable architecture but also a usage model that can be adapted flexibly to meet the customers’ needs. Customers can use the data exchange platform either as their own SaaS instance in a private cloud environment or as a multi-tenant application. In both cases, customer-specific branding of the user interface is possible.
PROSTEP is now making the world’s leading data exchange platform, OpenDXM GlobalX, available from the cloud. This does not, however, mean that it can only be used in the cloud. Its modular architecture makes it possible to seamlessly integrate the software in existing IT landscapes with on-premise applications or other cloud-based applications and to operate it in a hybrid on-premise / cloud scenario.
OpenDXM GlobalX can be used on the cloud stacks of any provider. Unlike global players such as Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft and Telekom, however, smaller, local providers often offer better control over which data is stored and better protection against a government's right to demand that data be handed over, which is very broadly defined in some countries. PROSTEP therefore uses the highly secure cloud infrastructure provided by the DARZ data center (https://www.da-rz.de) in Darmstadt.
