Implementing new technologies and tools feels like a daunting task. Not only is education critical to ensure the operations continue without a hitch, but investment in infrastructure and IT department support is enough to make one wonder when the investment will show returns, or if it would be worth the hassle in the first place.

For companies recognizing the need to invest in their digital future, cloud-based solutions are giving them the opportunity to do so in a flexible, scalable and accessible way.

One such example is NX. As part of the Xcelerator portfolio, NX delivers the next generation of design, simulation, and manufacturing solutions that enable companies to realize the value of the digital twin. Now, with a tie-in with Teamcenter X for data management, NX X is packaged as a SaaS solution delivering its full capabilities on the cloud, hosted and managed by the Siemens cloud services team.

What is NX X?

NX X is a pre-packaged cloud-based solution delivering the full NX stream into the whole infrastructure. It comes with all the backend infrastructure, all the service management, capabilities packaged as a suite and is available globally.

For organizations with distributed teams across the country or the globe, there are consistent issues that are challenging to work around, such as difficult data access, decentralized data and unsecure data access. NX X is a problem solver for these realities of the workforce whether they are work-from-home designers and engineers or multi-location stakeholders.

One of the main benefits of NX X and Teamcenter X is that data never leaves your company’s cloud environment keeping the IP secure and ensuring all stakeholders are working on a common platform.

The ROI of NX X

From infrastructure investment to IT overhead, companies are often plagued with the high cost of upfront ownership of new hardware and software. Decisions around storing data, server size and managing the time it takes for initial installations, new technology implementation is often burdensome, not to mention the additional costs of upgrades, backing up or disaster recovery.

SaaS solutions though mean all these considerations are managed so it’s not a burden. Xcelerator as a Service, which includes NX and Teamcenter, removes the investment in hardware and software costs by making it a subscription-based model. Siemens manages the environment, the hardware, maintenance of all the servers where NX sits, and ensures program reliability.

By choosing SaaS, companies are up-and-running faster and realizing a quicker return on their investment. Xcelerator as a Service allows companies to scale up or down based on their needs and the requirements of their projects, and provides the accessibility of working from anywhere, anytime and from any device.

The full power of NX X

NX X is the full power of NX without the managing of IT environments — it’s not a stripped-down application — and it’s completely compatible with on premise NX.

By leveraging cloud technologies, users can:

  • Remove the need for high end workstations and graphics
  • Future proof their solution because their hardware won’t become obsolete
  • Increase flexibility and accessibility
  • Increase data security
