Free Webinar: Collaborative Product Development in the New Normal

Digital Engineering Hot Seat panel discussion

Event Date: 15 December 2020 - 12:00 pm
Location: Online

In the latest Digital Engineering Hot Seat panel discussion, DE tackles remote collaboration technology.

Remote collaboration is increasingly important for engineering teams as work-from-home orders remain in place in many regions, and cross-border travel restrictions have put a hold on many face-to-face meetings.

In this webinar, part of the DE Hot Seat series of panel discussions, DE takes a look at the technologies that enable remote design collaboration. Can engineers successfully cope with the new normal using their current tools?

Moderated by DE editor Kenneth Wong, panelists will discuss:

  • the role of cloud-based design and simulation software;
  • the double-edged nature of VPNs and security features;
  • the hurdles and benefits to adopting AR/VR-based collaboration.
  • Our presentation will be followed by a LIVE Q&A session.
