Kharkiv, Ukraine (PressExposure) May 21, 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 made just a decade or two ago!
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 regards 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-entertainment use!" - says Dimitry Sverdlik, CTO of Ukrainian software house Program-Ace (www.program-ace.com).
The team of Program-Ace, having more than 5 years of experience in large-scale 3D projects, with the beginning of Q1 2009 has started a new long-term initiative.
"Being a developer of proprietary 3D technologies, we have decided to make a next step - and to produce a series of industry-oriented products based on Ace3D Engine and our framework solutions. We consider computer-based labor trainings and professional education to be one of the key application areas," - comments Oleg Fonarov, company's CEO. "Such systems can bring 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:
- modeling, visualization and animation; - merging of interactive models with advanced software applications (e.g. in professional simulators) or even - outsourced product development (OPD).
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(R) 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.
