Siemens PLM Software’s “platform of choice” strategy gives you the flexibility to use your preferred technology platform and provider. Teamcenter on the cloud is delivered through an Infrastructure a Service (IaaS) model for faster deployment and simplified scalability, which results in a lower cost of ownership.
Faster Time to Value
With Teamcenter on the cloud, the only thing between you and a PLM environment is configuration and user validation. Using virtual machine image templates, Siemens PLM Software and our partners can rapidly deploy Teamcenter allowing you to start using your Teamcenter environment without delay.
Lower Cost of Ownership
Teamcenter on the cloud provides you with the deployment flexibility to scale your infrastructure up and down based on your business needs. You can use the IaaS service to dynamically turn on additional infrastructure resources without heavy upfront investments. Teamcenter runs exactly the same on a cloud deployment as it does in a standard deployment supporting Active Workspace, rich and thin clients as well as Teamcenter Rapid Start, NX, and Tecnomatix Process Simulate on Teamcenter.
Moving to an IaaS model gives you cost effective access to enterprise grade IT infrastructure and resources without the need for a capital expenditure. In fact, renting or leasing capacity from a cloud provider falls under an operating expense which is easier to justify and manage.
Greater IT Flexibility
The increased flexibility you gain with Teamcenter on the cloud helps your IT organization shift its focus from time-consuming infrastructure management to more value-added application management. It also opens up many hybrid deployment options such as deploying new test environments quickly without the need to purchase or re-allocate hardware. In fact, you may opt to leverage the cloud for your development, test, and integration environments and moving to an on-premise deployment when you are ready to go live in production. All of this flexibility helps to improve your bottom-line as those transient deployments with their typically associated more permanent funding can be terminated when they are no longer needed.
Centralized, Expert Resources
Teamcenter on the cloud allows you to centralize IT infrastructure management as well as Teamcenter administration across multiple deployments which will free up your IT resources to focus on higher level value-added services such as supplier and partner on-boarding which can lead to enhanced collaboration and provide faster return on investment.
