Aveva has announced that it intends to use Amazon Web Services to deliver Aveva Connect, a software as a service (SaaS) ecosystem for engineering, design and information management products. In addition, Aveva has announced Aveva Net Connect, an information management as a service offering, planned to be delivered with Capgemini Technology Services, which specializes in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, as the first solution on the Aveva Connect platform.

Aveva Connect is designed to deliver new opportunities to drive down IT costs, improve flexibility to scale software usage to meet project demand and increase focus on core business activities without compromising security or user experience.

“With Aveva Net Connect, the digital asset will have the capability to be rapidly deployed in the cloud, allowing cross-disciplinary teams to collaborate and share information with complete clarity on the engineered status of the entire project or operating asset,” says Dave Wheeldon, chief technology officer (CTO) at Aveva. “This will enable greater collaboration between all parties in the supply chain, and better decision making by assets operators.”

Aveva has chosen Amazon Web Services to be its cloud technology provider for the launch of its cloud-based SaaS offering and intends to have Capgemini Technology Services as its strategic delivery partner, because of its market position, global reach and its security and reliability credentials.

“Aveva has been quick to recognize the benefits of moving to AWS and we are excited to support the delivery of Aveva Connect to help them to lower costs and improve agility, flexibility and security for their customers,” says  Ian Massingham, chief evangelist for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Amazon Web Services.
