We are excited to announce the latest release of Meridian, our innovative Asset Lifecycle Information Management (ALIM) software used by over 1,200 companies to manage engineering information throughout the asset lifecycle. Meridian is now available both as a cloud service and on-premise server and, and is offered as a subscription. This release includes Meridian Cloud, an all-new new cloud service platform, as well as updates to the on premise platform Meridian Server, Meridian Clients, and the Meridian Mobile app, to provide organizations in asset-intensive and highly regulated industries with maximum reliability and global availability of their mission-critical asset information.
Meridian Cloud is the world’s first complete ALIM solution in the cloud. This secure cloud service for engineering information management, built on Microsoft Azure, ensures that users are informed, aligned, compliant and in control throughout asset lifecycles. Offered through a subscription-based model, Meridian Cloud reduces startup costs, simplifies procurement and operational budgeting, and enables costs to stay in line with changing requirements and actual software usage.
Meridian Cloud License Subscriptions
This release also introduces new Meridian Cloud License Subscriptions, which enable customers to utilize the level of capabilities that best meet their needs and organizational scale. These subscriptions entitle users to Meridian software, including on-premises servers, cloud services, and apps on users’ mobile or desktop devices. They also include technical support, training, upgrades, and additional resources. Unlike traditional perpetual license purchases with recurring maintenance, Meridian Cloud License Subscriptions help users reduce startup costs, simplify procurement and operational budgeting, and help manage continuing costs in response to actual usage and changing requirements.
