What we announced earlier today is truly a milestone in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform journey!

As our President and CEO Bernard Charlès puts it:

Today’s announcement is a pivotal moment in Dassault Systèmes history and the result of our commitment to bring innovative business value to our clients.  It is, as well, a ‘cloud’ announcement, but the cloud is more than infrastructure and a delivery mechanism. The cloud is a way of working.  It is where consumers voice their needs, their ideas, their feedback.  It is where innovation is fostered and ideas take hold.  The 3DEXPERIENCE platform reveals and delivers that potential. It gives our customers a holistic, inclusive and unified view of their business and ecosystem to create better experiences for their end-consumers.

You can find there the complete list of the V6R2014 cloud offers, but let’s focus here on the brand new user experience, aka “IFWE Compass”. Watch this:

As you saw in the video, “IFWE Compass” is much more than just a mere ‘app-switcher’. It’s a truly unified environment coming with many features such as cloud storage (3DSpace), live dashboarding capabilities (3DDashboard), online chat including 3D as a media (3DInstantMessaging), interactive 3D scenes sharing (3DPlay), unified search across all apps and data (3DSearch), and more.

Also, the “6W Tagging” is a pretty interesting feature allowing to qualify structured and unstructured (e.g. folksonomies) information in a very natural, intuitive way. Indeed ‘6W’ stands for the simple questions: Who, When, What, Where, Why, and hoW. Simple yet powerful questions!

More details about industry/user-focused scenarios will be coming as we move forward, but for now here are sneak previews from some of our Brands :)

So, do you like what you saw? Tell us what you think!

First things first, we would like to thank all participants for the wonderful projects provided for the CATIA Design Contest “Seating Experience – When Shape meets Function”! Great job :D

Then, we are pleased to announce and congratulate our winner Vinay Reddy for his “SPACE TIME” Seating Experience Project!

Vinay Reddy is coming from Bangalore, India. He is interested in many topics including Product Design, Industrial Design, Product Design, Social Innovation, Affordable Healthcare, Solar lighting and Energy! Vinay is particularly motivated by the creation of innovative products. Both contemporary and aesthetic, his “SPACE TIME” project provides many features all the while saving space. It truly fits with the spirit of the CATIA Design Contest 2013 “When Shape meets Function”!

Vinay shared with us the creative process he followed to develop the “SPACE TIME” concept:

It took about 3 Weeks for Vinay to complete his project : about 2 weeks for idea development and concepts generation; and another week to finish modeling, rendering and presentations. Vinay has been using CATIA for over a year, he got to learn how to use it during a previous work experience at Ashok Leyland — designing automotive components. He is familiar with surface and solid modeling. He used the CATIA V5 – Mechanical Design workshop to design “SPACE TIME”.

Last but not least, we have the great pleasure to give away to the TOP 3 Seating Experience projects a 3D print of their respective seats!  :-)

Recognizing Dassault Systemes’ leading market position in the fashion industry, our host, Government of Quebec in Paris, invited us to attend a press conference on the 13th edition of the Festival Mode et Design in Montreal to be held July 31st to August 3rd.  Every year a few blocks in downtown Montreal for this 4-day fashion event. Over 500,000 visitors walk the streets and attend the many shows to discover Quebec’s best fashion styles.  This year’s honorary president is the multi-talented Jean Charles de Castelbajac whom I had the pleasure to meet.  Jean-Charles de Castelbajac will give a series of events: “Fantomes”, an artistic performance that mixes electro music and fashion, a conference at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, urban art and more.

A good reason to visit Montreal this summer!

And here are the wonderful people making it all happen: Sensation Mode
