With Forge, Autodesk teams, third-party developers, and end customers unlock powerful functionality that touches all aspects of design-to-make workflows—in all industries. The Forge platform is the first of its kind to offer connected data, cross-platform integration, and customized solutions in a cloud-based environment. Customers can use Forge to integrate the functionality of Autodesk and partner SaaS products into new workflows, and create or extend their own web or mobile applications using Forge service components, APIs, and tools.
Our customers rely on us to provide a simple, secure way to host and access their application services over the Internet. To this end, we have partnered with AWS to host the Forge platform. Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications. The Forge team trusts AWS to offer us the services to help our internal team, as well as our customers, build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability, and reliability.
