JCG America, Inc. has entered into a seven-year agreement to use Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise Engineering & Design Solution Suite hosted in the SmartPlant® Cloud, as the computing infrastructure for its Houston, Texas office.
For its new office, JGC sought a secure and efficient way to collaborate and share project data using SmartPlant software with its parent company, affiliates and other engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms. It also required a flexible and scalable information technology infrastructure to manage costs to meet changing business conditions.
SmartPlant Cloud is Intergraph's engineering ecosystem offering SmartPlant applications and third-party applications supported by technical and business operations service. A secure https URL supplies access to the service with minimal end-user local computing footprint. SmartPlant Cloud provides a single, unified, and secure computer environment that can contain multiple projects and user communities.
Commenting on the decision, Nick Cummins, VP of IT at JGC America, said: "By partnering with Intergraph, JGC is now positioned to be more effective in executing projects in Houston, or with other global EPC partners."
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President, added: "JGC Corporation has been a longtime user of Intergraph software, and we look forward to helping JGC's new office establish its computing infrastructure and be able to work globally with its parent company, as well as being able to communicate and share project data with other EPC firms using Intergraph SmartPlant solutions."
