Leading shipbuilders are shifting how to build the ideal shipyard tech structure towards an integrated layered approach, where platforms and systems work together seamlessly, no matter what vendor they come from. However, those shipyards need to be sure that they aren’t stuck with the task of making the applications work together. That’s why the most successful yards are making sure to find technology partners that have proven they integrate and work well together. Autodesk and SSI have been partners since 1996, and this year we were recognized by them for achieving the highest adoption rate in the Americas. That’s just one example of the type of partnership to look out for.
