Advances in hardware platforms allow interactive 3D solutions to win new customers from non-IT branches. From the other hand, a new wave of software developers aims to cover the gap between the current capacities of high-tech and needs of «classical» businesses.
Kharkiv (Ukraine), March 25, 2009 — IT industry is probably one of the branches that were changing most rapidly in post-industrial economy. And such constant movement often brings results exceeding even the bravest expectations. Not sure? Just take a minute to search for the forecasts of the most visionary personalities in high-tech business of the last two decades!
At the same time, "traditional" businesses are usually informed just not well enough to understand the new advantages or possibilities that never existed before. One of the most illustrative examples in this regard is the interactive 3D systems. This type of software could be considered as the emerging mass-market on the edge between the IT service providers and industrial customers.
"3D applications were always in demand for powerful hardware. Yet the evolution of platforms during several last years is gradually enabling even the mainstream PCs to smoothly handle modern virtual worlds. What is likely to be the next stage therefore? A breakthrough in interactive 3D software for non-entertainments use!" — says Dimitry Sverdlik, CTO of Ukrainian software house Program-Ace
The team of Program-Ace, having 5+ years of experience in large-scale 3D projects, with the beginning of Q1 2009 has started a new long-term initiative.
"Being an established player on interactive 3D solutions market, we have decided to make a next step — and to introduce a series of industry-oriented products. As one of the key application areas we consider computer-based labor trainings and professional education", — comments Oleg Fonarov, company’s CEO. "Such systems can get greatest advantages out of combination of high-end 3D technologies with the tasks which always require significant level of interactivity and lifelike experience".
The core of company’s strategic investments includes gradual development of the software platform and specific tools tuned for certain markets or groups of customers. From the other hand, the planned leap ahead also foresees the whole set of corresponding services, such as:
Final products may include: 3D catalogs and presentations, interactive tours and walkthroughs in cyber-space, 3D cities and full-scale virtual worlds, advanced 3D manuals and interactive trainings, Web3D applications and portals, etc.
Aiming to bring the new generation of high-end 3D applications for industrial use to the market, Program-Ace also looks for strategic alliances for the future. For instance, since 2006 the company is involved into Intel® Software Partner Program and in 2008 joined Sun Partner Advantage initiative. The other type of possible allies includes large enterprises interested in transforming their standard business processes (or promo-activities) with the power of latest IT-technologies.
