The perception in many countries across the world about restrictions on business outside of the COVID-19 had always been a concern for me.
Why should a SME focus only on local markets?
Throughout my experience both in Northern and Southern Europe I have identified the same trend.
Remote Working Challenge
Following the COVID-19 lockdown many companies faced the challenge of how to connect all their homeworking employees to office servers, securely drawing on centralised software licencing regimes that many software company’s employ. Integrated Design Management, a design house using CATIA V5 supplied by Desktop Engineering (DTE), faced this problem of continuing their operations.
MSC Software have just announced that they have relaxed licencing terms to assist customers having to use the software at home.
Effective immediately until 30th June users can access and use their licenced software from home using any necessary infrastructure (e.g. VPN) to facilitate this use.
There is no need for any authorisation for this temporary arrangement.
For those users who cannot access their company licence server from home there is an option to issue a temporary licence which is available on request.
The ongoing effects of the outbreak of Coronavirus/COVD-19 have disrupted all our lives in one way or another. At DTE, we’re continuing to work as normally as possible, under difficult circumstances, so that we can support you.
