Autodesk Introduces Forma, Flow, Fusion Industry Clouds

NEW ORLEANS, LA, Sep 28, 2022 – Autodesk is supporting and advancing its customers’ digital transformation journeys by connecting workflows in the cloud for better outcomes and workflows. At Autodesk University, Autodesk is introducing three industry clouds: Autodesk Forma, Autodesk Flow and Autodesk Fusion. Part of the Autodesk Platform, these industry clouds will connect processes to drive new ways of working.

  • Autodesk Forma, the industry cloud for AEC, unifies building information modeling (BIM) workflows for teams who design, build, and operate the built environment. The first Forma offering will help customers extend the BIM process into planning and early-stage design.
  • Autodesk Flow, the industry cloud for M&E, connects customer workflows, data, and teams across the entire production lifecycle from earliest concept to final delivery. The first cloud product available on Flow will focus on Asset Management, giving users the ability to manage assets throughout the entire production process.
  • Autodesk Fusion, the industry cloud for D&M, connects customer data and people across the entire product development lifecycle from top floor to shop floor. Fusion 360, together with Autodesk Fusion 360 Manage with Upchain, and Prodsmart make up the initial cloud offerings within Autodesk Fusion.

“Fusion 360 is the best example of where we’re taking our industry clouds, providing a connected environment that flows up and down a project lifecycle,” said Raji Arasu, Autodesk CTO. “As we build out each industry cloud, a central cloud information model will give every collaborator the right data at the right time on the device of their choice.”

Underpinning these three clouds is Autodesk Platform Services, the set of cross-industry APIs and services formerly known as Forge. Autodesk Platform Services provides customers with the ability to customize solutions, create innovative workflows, and integrate other tools and data with our platform.
