Confusion Between Software Leads to Additional Costs, Hinders Workflow

The engineering software market is predicted to advance at a robust CAGR of ~13% during the forecast period. However, many clients are unable to spot the differences in software solutions such as for visual technology and modelling software. Clients tend to confuse modelling software with photogrammetry in order to obtain a photo-realistic tour to document a facility, which may lead to additional costs and hinder the workflow. Hence, software companies should educate end users about the utility of every software so that the buyer makes an informed decision.

Modelling software are becoming more sophisticated to simplify the output and translation of information. This transforms a complex data set into a digestible diagnostic.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Software robots are anticipated to gain prominence in the post coronavirus pandemic where these platforms are being built with the optical character recognition (OCR) technology to automate unemployment applications in government organizations to decipher tricky handwriting. The 3D modeling software are gaining popularity for developing high-quality digital content. However, software development methodologies such as the agile development methodology are being associated with lack of documentation and in many cases, difficult to access at the beginning of the lifecycle of the software development. Hence, companies in the engineering software market should increase the availability of open source software platforms to attract seamless collaboration from developers, artists, and designers.
