Realize LIVE 2023 Capital sessions DAY 1
Day one (Monday) started off strong, with a dual presentation by Chad Jackson, Chief Analyst and CEO of Lifecycle Insights and Tom Yip, CEO & Founder of Radica Software which was recently acquired by Siemens. Chad leads Lifecycle’s research and thought leadership programs and reviews emerging technology solutions. His twenty-five-year career has focused on improving executives’ ability to reap value from technology-led engineering initiatives during the industry’s transition to smart, connected products.
For the presentation Modern Electrical Systems Design: Leveraging SaaS to Address Today’s Complexity and Collaboration Constraints – an industry analyst perspective, Chad looked at how every company, even small and mid-sized businesses(SMBs), faces rising electrical systems complexity. An organization’s IT department adds a complexity all its own. One way companies are tackling issues such as a need for greater computing power to automate design tasks and deal with the ever-growing amount of data is to invest in Software as a System (SaaS) cloud-based solutions. SaaS can also help companies shift their IT resources to other responsibilities and away from things like software updates that would need to be done if using an on-premise solution. Switching to the cloud allows for relying on more resources and expertise from the solution’s providers.
Tom then discussed Capital Electra X, Siemens’ cloud-native SaaS solution designed specifically for SMBs to create and edit electrical, hydraulics, pneumatic and P&ID drawings. Capital Electra X is an example of how a robust browser-based tool avoids the downloads, installation, updates, downtime, crashes and backups of on-premise tools. SaaS in this case saves time with no IT department required. It enables diverse teams to work seamlessly together with access anywhere using any device.
