ORLEANS, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today,
Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) kicks off Autodesk University
(AU) 2022, the company's annual design and make conference and
premier learning experience. After two years as a digital
experience, the event returns in person this year in New Orleans and runs September 27-29.
AU brings together thousands of industry experts and thought
leaders at the forefront of architecture, engineering, and
construction (AEC), product design and manufacturing (D&M), and
media and entertainment (M&E). Today, organizations across each
of these industries face unprecedented challenges, from supply
chain disruption and labor shortages to distributed teams and more.
Attendees at AU will have the opportunity to hear from leaders in
AEC, M&E, and D&M. Speakers from Autodesk and organizations
such as the City of New Orleans,
Harvard Business School, British
Antarctic Survey, Amazon Studios, BBi Autosport, and more will
share how they are achieving better outcomes by connecting people,
processes, and technology.
"Our industries are embracing digital tools, but too often,
people remain siloed in their respective jobs with disconnected
processes, burdened by data that is not as useful as it could be,"
said Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk
president and CEO. "The time is now for our customers to fully
realize the benefits of digital transformation. Our Autodesk cloud
capabilities will empower the innovators and creators we serve to
be more productive, and more profitable."
Autodesk is supporting and advancing its customers' digital
transformation journeys by connecting workflows in the cloud for
better outcomes and workflows. At AU, Autodesk is introducing three
industry clouds: Autodesk Forma, Autodesk Flow and Autodesk Fusion.
Part of the Autodesk Platform, these industry clouds will connect
processes to drive new ways of working.
- Autodesk Forma, the industry cloud for AEC, unifies
building information modeling (BIM) workflows for teams who design,
build, and operate the built environment. The first Forma offering
will help customers extend the BIM process into planning and
- Autodesk Flow, the industry cloud for M&E, connects
customer workflows, data, and teams across the entire production
lifecycle from earliest concept to final delivery. The first cloud
product available on Flow will focus on Asset Management, giving
users the ability to manage assets throughout the entire production
- Autodesk Fusion, the industry cloud for D&M,
connects customer data and people across the entire product
development lifecycle from top floor to shop floor. Fusion 360,
together with Autodesk Fusion 360 Manage with Upchain, and
Prodsmart make up the initial cloud offerings within Autodesk
"Fusion 360 is the best example of where we're taking our
industry clouds, providing a connected environment that flows up
and down a project lifecycle," said Raji
Arasu, Autodesk CTO. "As we build out each industry cloud, a
central cloud information model will give every collaborator the
right data at the right time on the device of their
Underpinning these three clouds is Autodesk Platform Services,
the set of cross-industry APIs and services formerly known as
Forge. Autodesk Platform Services provides customers with the
ability to customize solutions, create innovative workflows, and
integrate other tools and data with our platform.
