Much has been made about the ongoing tech talent shortage, which is affecting almost every sector. For engineering and manufacturing companies, these issues can impact the ability to deploy complex CAD and PDM software like SOLIDWORKS. With the enhanced cloud-based solution, Converge Design provides a managed service in support of design, manufacturing, implementation, deployment, and administration.
A recent report from McKinsey revealed that 87% of USA organizations are currently facing a talent shortage crisis. The problem is most acutely felt in the technology sector, which is only compounded by rapid growth in fields such as information security and software development.
For engineering and manufacturing companies, limited IT resources can prevent the implementation of SOLIDWORKS CAD and PDM solutions. This is even more apparent given the recent shift towards remote working practices. With its latest cloud-hosted service, Converge Design aims to remove many of these barriers.
The solution includes a SOLIDWORKS Desktop as a Service product, which provides Windows 10 OS, dedicated resources, and Nvidia GPUs. With this service, engineers have access to standard workstation performance on any device and from any location. As a fully managed environment, client companies have no need to employ significant IT resources.
