3DEXPERIENCE Platform 2014x

Dassault Systèmes which provides 3D engineering design software and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions,  has announced the 2014 release of its 3DExperience platform’s on-premise and on-the-cloud portfolio of industry solution experiences spanning twelve separate industries, from aerospace to financial services. 

The on-premise portfolio expands capabilities already available on the V6 architecture and unifies the user experience for all processes and industries. Built to answer customer- and industry-specific needs for ease of use and lower training costs, the open architecture allows customisation and the integration of enterprise data into a single environment.

The cloud portfolio is offered through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model on a public cloud to provide increased flexibility and deployment -- all services and support of the cloud provider are included in the price, with Dassault Systèmes as the single point of contact and provision. The public cloud includes maintenance, licensing, and upgrades. Total cost of ownership is improved by reducing requirements for computing and storage, as well as facility and human resources costs, empowering enterprises of all sizes, and enabling rapid sizing and capability deployment.
