IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces IntelliCAD® 8 in the Cloud

Portland, OR, USA, June 30, 2014 — The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced IntelliCAD 8.0 operating in the cloud.

Made available last week, thousands of users have been sampling IntelliCAD in the cloud using a local web browser with no installation or registration required. 

IntelliCAD 8.0 is the most recent CAD development platform delivered by the ITC to its members. It contains over 1,200 new features and fixes that include interoperability with the latest version of .dwg files, version 2014.

By using Mainframe2 technology, IntelliCAD can be run on a local computer without needing expensive hardware. Mainframe2 is designed to run any software application in the cloud with minimal internal development.

Robert Berry, Business Development Director of the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium said, “The Mainframe2 technology is an exciting new method of software delivery that allows us to run IntelliCAD across any platform including Macintosh and Linux. With the launch of the new IntelliCAD 8 via the cloud we have been able to let thousands of people immediately experience the power of this terrific software without the complication of installation or even registration.”

David Lorenzo, Development Director of the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium said, “Our members were stunned to see IntelliCAD running in a browser. Mainframe2 is a real game-changer for us. With very little work we have managed to supply our members with the cloud solution that they can use today.”

“IntelliCAD running in the cloud is a great example of how powerful, sophisticated solutions will be delivered in the future,” said Dr. Nikola Bozinovic, founder and CEO of Mainframe2. “Our cloud platform gives software vendors everything they need to instantly reach millions of users on all devices without having to modify their product. It's an amazing opportunity for ITC members to shape the future of CAD.”
