Rand Worldwide demonstrated data archiving solutions for engineering industries that are built on Autonomy’s IDOL platform.
CAD models, email communications, instant messaging, voicemails, project documentation and scanned information contribute to an ever increasing amount of electronic data. This data grows at a rate of 30-40% each year, according to the company. CAD-based organizations have an even greater need for data archiving solutions as the models are both large and constantly related to numerous other files.
Integrating a collaborative design environment that leverages 2D and 3D parametric and non-parametric data combined with a process where partners, vendors and customers participate together across geographies brings new challenges to the forefront. An archiving solution provides manufacturers with additional support for the retrieval of information such as warranty and customer service support.
“As a Rand Worldwide division, we have an in-depth understanding of the electronic data challenges within the design engineering community. In fact, many of our staff previously worked in Rand’s IMAGINiT Technologies division assisting CAD-based organizations on a daily basis. Our unrivalled industry insight pays off in spades when creating a solution that solves the unique archiving and data retention pressures CAD-based organizations face today,” says Chris Grossman, vice president, Rand Secure Archive.
