Wärtsilä’s data management in the cloud

Maintaining optimal operation of modern engines requires simulation of advanced models and computationally intensive data analysis. Data management throughout the product life-cycle is becoming increasingly important as companies seek new ways to strengthen their competitiveness. At the same time the usability is moving to a key role, as high-performance computing needs to cater new user groups.

Techila Technologies and Wärtsilä have joined SIMPRO to work on development of simulation-based product processes. SIMPRO is a project funded by Tekes the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation.

“In SIMPRO, I am looking forward to developing cloud innovations, which enable faster time-to-market in product development, and provide better understanding of the product life cycle aspects”, says Tuomas Eerola, Vice President of Business Development, Techila Technologies Ltd.

Techila Technologies and Wärtsilä demonstrate the potential of cloud platforms and user-centric distributed computing to product data management. The Techila Distributed Computing Engine can shield users from the complexity of computing systems. Techila can enable a secure integration of Wärtsilä’s simulation and computation processes and Windows Azure cloud services to a platform, which enables development of competitive advantage around simulation-based product processes.

“I believe that this demonstration was only the first proof of concept about the simulation and calculation innovations, which we will see coming from SIMPRO project”, says Matias Aura, Project Manager, Wärtsilä Finland Oy.
