Hey you...get off of my cloud! We all need to share information, but how do we unify the tools to get us all onto the same page? The cloud offers an excellent opportunity to share information quickly and accurately, but which platform do you choose? With so many cloud collaboration tools suited to different industries, how do you choose a tool that allows for easy data sharing? How do you track changes once the information is shared? How do you keep the attachments out of email systems while making the data available through email links? How do you quickly and easily track compliance, revisions, and updates within your projects? Bring your ideas and tips to share with others in this roundtable session as we discuss ways to make our lives easier through commonly available cloud collaboration tools and methods to standardize cloud-based offerings. After all, companies can't build products if they don't know what we want, and especially if we don't know what we want!
People who need to share highly changeable data with a dynamic audience across a large geographical area and who have a need to maintain and view compliance information,

As with many software as a service (SaaS) providers, Autodesk offers products that support cloud-based collaboration and enable application deliverables right to your desktop or mobile device. As customers, we need to understand what these tools can do for us and how to apply them to our corporate needs. What does Autodesk® PLM 360 cloud-based data management look like to our company? Will BIM 360™ Field or BIM 360™ Glue® cloud-based software help us to better manage site or subcontractor products and deliverables? How can we capitalize on Fusion 360™ software for project-based collaboration between manufacturers and construction teams to solve real-world problems? What about mobile apps, such as Autodesk® FormIt™ for site-based problem description and resolution for project managers? What does it really look like to be able to access any of my work from anywhere: at my desk, in the boardroom, or what have you? Join us for a panel discussion on these powerful new technologies.
There is a lot of hype around cloud computing and there are many claims about whether it can really be transformative. While the total cost of ownership benefits have been proven, questions about whether the cloud can deliver the same level of functionality remain. In this class, we examine how the cloud has changed how designers and manufacturers are using information technology and extending the value of it to better apply lean principles in their business.
