Engineering cloud refers to the use of the cloud for orchestrating and integrating an organization’s engineering functions. Historically cloud adoption was slow in engineering functions due to concerns about performance, intellectual property (IP). As a result, engineering platforms are hosted on inefficient, scale-constrained and costly on-premises infrastructure.
As the post-pandemic world experiences rapid changes, engineering functions are looking at agile, flexible, scalable, robust, and secure infrastructure to run engineering applications. Unfortunately, traditional datacenters are unable to satisfy all these requirements as it implies heavy capital expenditure. On the other hand, cloud offers an agile, scalable, robust and secure infrastructure to run engineering applications.
At Infosys, we help customers run their COTS applications like CAD, PLM, CPQ, PPM, LIMS, IoT/IIoT, or custom develop applications on the cloud. Our Cobalt offering for engineering understands the architecture, performance and security needs of customers and helps them design, migrate and run engineering applications on the cloud. Our partnership with major hyperscalers, combined with our long-standing collaborations with major engineering software vendors, enables our customers’ transition to the cloud smoothly with zero business disruption.
Traditional on-premises datacenters offer rigid infrastructure. On the other hand, Infosys Engineering Cloud offers flexibility and scalability.
Cloud offers multiple services for data security, and with AI powered continuous monitoring, applications and data are well protected. In addition, cloud also provides different levels of encryption to protect the data.
Cloud supports the implementation of state-of-the-art new infrastructure over a short time hence overcoming the challenges of legacy systems.
