Top 20 Simulation Companies - 2017
Today, simulation technology is making its way into numerous applications across a wide number of fields such as manufacturing, energy, automotive, aviation, and much more. Add to that, the ever-growing reach and demand IoT and AI and the possibilities have become even greater. With digital twins now becoming more common and simulation solutions linking with CAM programs with relative ease, companies can use sensors in the physical world to accurately design and simulate real-world objects with real-world conditions. This leads to radical reductions in cost and time as it negates the need for the construction of physical models for testing purposes. Providers are also developing predictive simulation tools for companies to understand the dynamics of their business processes.
Simulation solutions now offer programs with a wider range of capabilities and greater depth and industries are actively incorporating advanced simulation programs into their project workflows. To improve training methods, companies are resorting to simulation technologies that test employee skills against real-world scenarios. Simulation technology will continue to be extensively used by the defense and aviation industries, but as providers actively increase their simulator repertoire, simulation will find more wide-reaching uses in other industries, such as mining, oil, and gas, construction, etc. Simulation technologies provide a detailed emulation on the behavior and composition of materials and firms in these industries can leverage the technology to transform their businesses like never before.
With a more comprehensive view into the technology’s wide applications and potentialities and to assist organizations in choosing their best simulation solutions partner, this edition of CIO Review brings you the “20 Most Promising Simulation Solution Providers - 2017.” A distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts including the CIO Review editorial board have selected the most promising companies in the simulation space that showcase extensive business knowledge combined with innovative solutions, strategies, and talent bases.
