To obtain maximum business and technology benefits for an organization using Autodesk, Inc., products, designing a complete architecture through proper system requirements is essential. In 2015, Autodesk Consulting began capitalizing on standards derived from The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) for design and implementation activities. TOGAF is designed to organize information system components as building blocks to help conceptualize, design, and plan around deployment. This class will discuss how Autodesk Consulting has successfully used the approach by describing how implementations have benefited from applying methodology components. We will share examples from actual implementations, as well as best practices. We will also discuss how you can use these approaches for your own implementation work.

Vergangenes Jahr hat Autodesk auf der AU Germany 2014 die Einstellung der Productstream Professional Familie zum Oktober 2017 angekündigt. Für unsere Kunden, die in diesem Jahr nicht an unseren „Productstream Professional Roadshows“ teilnehmen konnten, wollen wir in dieser Session einen Überblick über den Mehrwert von Autodesk® Vault geben und stellen den technischen Ablauf einer Migration an Hand einer Beispiel Datenbank live vor. Außerdem haben Sie die Möglichkeit Ihre Fragen rund um den Umstieg von Productstream Professional direkt an die Produkt Manager von Autodesk Vault zu stellen.
Have you ever thought, “Wow, I'd like to use Vault Professional software to manage that”? Vault software is great at managing files and items, but what about other things like project information, task lists, and whatever else you can dream up. Well, with Custom Objects now you can. This exciting class will teach you how to get started with Custom Objects. You’ll learn about creating custom objects, custom object security, categories, and maybe even a little UI modification.
This class will show you how we have developed new processes in our company through the use of Inventor software and Vault software. We will explain how Vault software features such as lifecycles and categories are being used to control design to manufacturing workflow and operations. We will then cover the integration of the software in a globalized environment, the implementation of site-specific processes, and the system monitoring required to avoid complication with several errors we have encountered. The final point will show how, thanks to use of custom API, we provide design information to our manufacturing department. This includes how we initially planned to use Vault vanilla or thin client, and how we had to develop customized tools aimed for the manufacturing department to access design documents.
Do you know what Vault software is? Do you know what Vault software is really for? Do you know why you should use it? This class will answer those questions. Come and join us as we give an introduction to the Vault software products. We'll start with a quick overview of the products and then progress into what they are and why you should use them. Knowing why you use the features can be just as important as the way that you use them. If you are anything but a "power user" of Vault software, this class is for you.
Whether you’re planning your first installation or maintaining a global replicated network, this class will walk you through the implementation, configuration, maintenance, and migration of your Vault software implementation. Learn how to properly plan for the growth of your deployment and how to maintain your Vault software to match the evolving needs of your business. As your system grows over time, you will need to migrate from version to version of the product as well as of the SQL and the operating system. Class topics will include capacity planning, disaster recovery, system monitoring, and SQL optimization. Learn from the experts to ensure your Vault software success.
Do you have challenges managing data while working in project teams? Are your project's teams spread out geographically? Are you constantly emailing drawing files to Project Team members?
