By Microsol Resources | Collaboration, Data Management, News

From the way people work to the way supply chains operate,  business has undergone a radical transformation in recent years. Market demand is evolving, too, as climate change, demographic pressures, and shifting consumer priorities create challenges across every industry.


The reinvention of your business starts with platform

To navigate today’s markets–and build the foundation for long-term success–leading businesses are migrating to cloud-based platforms. With integrated work environments and connected data, they can meet challenges head-on and capture opportunities as they emerge.


Autodesk’s Industry Cloud-based Platform Enable Digital Transformation

Autodesk is building a platform that includes industry clouds and a set of common platform services. Autodesk Forma, Autodesk Fusion, and Autodesk Flow are industry clouds that will transform the way you work by connecting the data, tools, and capabilities you and your partners need at every phase of a project. With Autodesk Platform Services (previously Forge), you can customize, extend, and connect Autodesk products with other solutions to create seamless end-to-end workflows and meet your business objectives.

Successful, digitally mature organizations are built on a foundation of connected people, processes, and data. Read this article by Autodesk’s CEO, Andrew Anagnost as he describes how a cloud-based platform makes it all possible.


What is the Autodesk Platform?

The Autodesk Platform—consisting of industry clouds and a set of common, cloud-based services—will provide a single environment that connects the tools, data, and capabilities you and your partners need at every phase of a project.


What are the industry clouds?

Industry clouds will comprise products that connect processes and streamline workflows in that industry, offering capabilities that span the full lifecycle of a project.

  • Autodesk Fusion: Our industry cloud for manufacturing will connect your data and people, delivering next-generation workflows across the entire product development lifecycle, from the top floor to the shop floor, throughout your organization and ecosystem.
  • Autodesk Flow: Our industry cloud for media and entertainment will connect your workflows, data, and teams across the entire production lifecycle from earliest concept to final delivery.
  • Autodesk Forma: Our industry cloud for architecture, engineering, construction, and operations will unify building information modeling (BIM) workflows across the teams that design, build, and operate in the built environment, enabling data to flow seamlessly throughout project phases, stakeholders, and asset types.


What is Autodesk Platform Services?

Autodesk Platform Services (APS) , formerly Forge, is a set of evolving APIs and services to help you customize solutions, create innovative workflows, and integrate other tools and data with our platform. APS also offers an app marketplace of prebuilt solutions that help you quickly connect gaps and a central cloud-information model that streamlines how teams create and share project data.

In addition to web service APIs, Autodesk Platform Services (APS) offers an app marketplace of pre-built solutions that can help you quickly connect gaps, as well as a central cloud information model that can streamline how teams create and share data across project lifecycles.


What can you do with Autodesk Platform Services?

By ensuring that data is connected, accessible, interoperable, and granular, Autodesk Platform Services makes it possible to unlock insights from data that was previously locked up in proprietary file formats or lost in file translation. APS also enables you to connect your workflows and data across industries quickly, easily, and at a very low cost. This enables increased efficiencies, better and faster decision-making, increased safety, increased growth in the top and bottom line, and accelerated innovation.


How will Autodesk’s cloud-based platform enable digital transformation?

The Autodesk Platform will enable both digital and industry transformation by reimagining project workflows, simplifying how you access and use our tools, and connecting data across the entire lifecycle of a project to realize its full value. The platform will empower distributed teams to work fluidly across the boundaries of projects.

With products that are easy to use, learn, and deploy, you can harness project data to generate insights that flow through the entire project lifecycle. By removing barriers to collaboration and bringing data-backed insights to everyday decision-making, The Autodesk Platform removes barriers to collaboration and provides data-backed insights, so you can spend less time coordinating processes or predicting outcomes and more time focusing on critical business decisions.
