February 17, 2023
Ansys and Microsoft Corp. have extended their strategic collaboration to enhance virtual product design. Ansys will be developing a new offering called Ansys Access on Microsoft Azure, which will allow customers to launch Ansys products using their Azure enrollment and to connect third-party tools.
The new offering will be available on the Azure Marketplace and provide an alternative to Ansys Cloud Direct, which also runs on Azure. This strategic collaboration between Ansys and Microsoft is intended to improve data management and offer more flexibility for customers, the companies note.
The collaboration between Ansys and Microsoft will also include expanding their go-to-market strategy, with a focus on digital twins connected to the Internet of things, autonomous driving and flying systems development, and the use of simulation data for artificial intelligence/machine learning systems training. The migration to the cloud is expected to result in increased productivity, reduced in-house technology costs and improved virtual collaboration for mutual customers, the companies report.
Ansys is also working on integrating Microsoft 365 capabilities into its engineering simulation tools to enhance the collaborative process of product design, the company notes. By adding Ansys Access on Microsoft Azure, customers can choose the most effective method to use cloud-based simulation for their organizations.
