Jaguar Land Rover design, engineer and manufacture luxury sports saloons, sports cars and premium 4x4s in the UK which sell in 177 countries. The complexity, timescale and cost associated with automotive engineering and safety testing demands an advanced IT environment.

This presentation provides an overview of the development and deployment of a state-of-the-art Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and High Performant Computing (HPC) IT ecosystem that underpins JLR's move from physical to 'svirtual car's product development, reducing the time to market, engineering costs and environmental impact of the product lifecycle.
