Networked technology, both private and infrastructural, becomes more integral to modern life every day. Complexity is also on the rise, with AI and machine learning, robotics, and sophisticated cybersecurity requirements taking an ever-larger role in technological applications. Changing consumer perceptions are shaping the market through an increased awareness of data privacy and a growing demand for environmentally sustainable products. Successful tech suppliers must commit to sophisticated security controls and low environmental impact, while developing the agility and resource efficiency to take advantage of a booming industry.
As networked systems become both more ubiquitous and more foundational to mission-critical operations, cybersecurity becomes a top priority. The complexity of the latest technology and the amount of data it generates presents a challenge in securing every edge while maintaining high-quality design and flexible scalability. PLM software helps companies take advantage of big data to analyze threats, embed secure access principles in every design, and protect their own data with secured cloud collaborations.
Keeping up with innovation
The technology sphere is expanding explosively, driving up the demands on high tech manufacturers. As the world becomes increasingly digital, sophisticated equipment is being used in groundbreaking new ways. Powerful CAE design and simulation tools support smooth collaboration and innovation and accelerate time to market, ensuring that companies don’t miss any opportunities.
Supply chain visibility
Volatility requires high tech companies to stay agile. Ensuring supply chain continuity requires transparency and strong communication throughout companies’ supplier networks. PLM software connects manufacturers to their suppliers with powerful collaboration tools, and keeps logistics flexible with real-time monitoring and predictive analytics.
High quality sustainability
Governments, consumers, and businesses are increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of the products they use. Driving resource-efficient design and manufacturing isn’t just green, it’s cost-effective. CAE helps companies design environmentally sustainable products that incorporate reuse, repair, and recycling strategies, and PLM software supports a modular product portfolio that streamlines manufacturing processes.
Designing for privacy
As connected and intelligent consumer products become more common, social and regulatory awareness of data privacy grows. Embedding security in product design will differentiate high tech companies and mitigate the risk of future policy changes. CAE lets companies set secure design standards from the start, reducing rework and increasing customer confidence.
An increasingly digital, increasingly connected world is driving consumer expectations for always-on experiences. To deliver, companies need to respond with real-time interactivity and customized behavior. CAE lets them design with freedom, leveraging real-time user data and embedding configurability to create the foundation for a truly individual product.
