San Jose, California – January 30, 2020 – Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced that Aspen Technology, Inc., a leading software supplier for optimizing asset performance, has certified Nutanix Frame to enable its customers to access its latest aspenONE Engineering® software anytime and anywhere. The solution helps AspenTech’s customers deploy new software versions faster and at scale, minimizing IT overhead and improving user collaboration.
Technology companies increasingly require solutions that enable customers to efficiently adopt new products and cloud solutions as part of a digitalization strategy to drive their businesses forward. As enterprises increasingly shift to cloud-first business strategies, the ones who fall behind run the risk of being overshadowed by competitors. AspenTech saw the value in a product that would help its customers across many verticals — including oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering and construction — keep pace with digital transformation and push their cloud strategies forward.
AspenTech’s software allows companies in capital-intensive industries to better design, operate and maintain their complex manufacturing environments. Its market-leading software helps the world’s largest energy, chemical and engineering companies understand and solve inefficiencies in their operations so they can improve safety, reduce waste and environmental impact, and grow their business.
To test the suitability of Frame for its applications, AspenTech hosted a six-month pilot program with six of its top customers. After a successful trial, AspenTech chose to certify Frame as a supported platform to support customers' implementation of aspenONE Engineering software from the cloud with minimal overhead.
Frame also enables customers to work together in new ways that were not always possible with previous versions of AspenTech solutions. With Frame, multiple users can collaborate better globally on the same engineering designs at the same time, using any device running an HTML5 capable web browser. Moreover, Frame integrates with cloud storage services, including Nutanix Files, to enable scalable and secure file services to an organization’s end-users.
“Frame offers a wide variety of deployment options, and it’s a great fit for aspenOne Engineering because it’s cloud-agnostic and includes services to configure and support the cloud environment,” said Simon Lingard, Senior Director of Product Management at AspenTech. “The product enables our customers to roll out our applications in the cloud quickly. Now, deployment is much easier and it can be done centrally. The capabilities of Frame have provided a foundation for further cloud delivery innovation at AspenTech.
“When we collaborate with companies like AspenTech, we enable customers across many verticals to increase efficiency, collaboration and meet the ever-increasing expectations of their users,” said Nikola Bozinovic, VP and GM of End-User Computing at Nutanix. “We look forward to continuing to drive strategic cloud initiatives for our customers and to offer new ways for end-users to consume software solutions anywhere and on any device.”
