New Simulation Community-Driven Portal Provides a One-Stop Resource to Support Movement to Democratize Simulation

by Mike Nieburg in CAD/CAE, Democratization, News, Simulation

Today, the new web portal Revolution-In-Simulation.Org (Rev-Sim.org) was launched to support a growing industry-wide movement to make engineering simulation more accessible, efficient, and reliable; not just for CAE experts but also for non-specialists – the “Democratization of Simulation” to accelerate innovation. EASA, being a pioneer and leader for the creation of a rapid application development […]

Understanding Low Code Development Platforms, and How They are Becoming Critical for Businesses

by Mike Nieburg in CAD/CAE, CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote), Democratization, Excel Spreadsheets, Finance and Insurance, Low-Code Development Platform, Simulation, Uncategorized

Understanding Low Code Development Platforms Spreadsheets are the original low-code development platform (See Wikipedia for Low-Code information). With spreadsheets, people who are typically directly involved in a work process can create applications that they need, quickly and normally without IT involvement. These people are not dedicated programmers, nor are they members of their company’s IT department, hence […]

The Three Most Common Excel Headaches, and an Aspirin-free Approach to Eliminating Them

by Mike Nieburg in All Blog Posts, CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote), Democratization, Excel Spreadsheets, Finance and Insurance

The Three Most Common Excel Problems EASA Solves Excel is universally loved for its flexibility, power and agility, but probably nearly as universally loathed for three problems it can create when users attempt to share critical spreadsheets, namely: 1. Lack of version control: most of us have personally experienced the scenario of losing track of […]

What is Democratization of Simulation and Model Deployment – and why bother doing it?

by Sebastian Dewhurst in All Blog Posts, Appification, CAD/CAE, Democratization, Simulation

What is Democratization of Simulation and Model Deployment? First, let’s start with some definitions. What is “democratization” (in this context anyway)? What is simulation? Is it different to modeling? Is democratization the same as deployment? And what on Earth is “appification”? Once we’ve covered the “what”, then maybe the “why” will have more context… “Democratization” […]

What is “Appification”?

by Mike Nieburg in All Blog Posts, Appification, CAD/CAE, CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote), Democratization, Simulation, Uncategorized

What is “Appification”? Web deployment and application building has begun to germinate some new definitions for old terms, and in some cases spawned brand new ones. Words like “appification,” “webification,” “democratization” and their related verb forms are becoming increasingly added to the software lexicon. Appification has most often been associated with the rapidly emerging mobile […]

Eight dangers engineers, modelers and analysts need to be aware of when using Excel spreadsheets It’s pretty obvious why we use Excel so much – it’s everywhere, it’s initially easy, and it’s what we know. But when engineers and scientists look to Excel for performing modeling & simulation, data analysis or any complex scientific calculation, […]
