Acting as “MC” of the recently held Dassault Systemes Application Innovation Summit (DS AIS) was both informative and fun.  Besides my role as Online Business & Community manager within the High-Tech Industry, I’ve had the pleasure of helping “keep pace” and to “put some energy” into the show with our distinguished speakers. Privileges of being MC include interacting with each of the speakers and simply being present.


What an exciting event this year: one of the more interactive segments was conducting the opening exchange with Dominique Florack.  Delivering his key messages as part of a dynamic discussion made it more interesting for the audience to follow the many key messages and hot-off-the-press announcements.

Mr. Florack shared a remark with the audience that I found most profound; stating that the announcements being made during this summit were the most important he has had the pleasure of making over the last 15 years or so.

Future is on the cloud

If there had been any doubt or questions about the future of Dassault Systemes; it’s on the cloud.   The value and impact we seek to deliver with the help of our extensive partner network is all focused on modeling the “Consumer Experience.”

The dynamics of the world economy, the rapidly evolving demands and expectations of consumers, along with the accelerating change and adoption of technologies is the context to, as Mr Florack said, “… empower the individual, communities and businesses”.

What a great place to be working where the potential to positively impact the world is a tangible perspective.



3D Goes Crazy @ Futur en Seine Festival

We have that festival here in Paris which is so awesome I thought I’d share it with you. It’s called “Futur en Seine” and it’s basically about the general public meeting innovative companies and researchers to imagine together what our future could look like.

Now you may think it’s about witches reading palms. Not quite. Actually we had the pleasure to see people like Yoichiro Kawaguchi whose ambition is to propose artistic but fully realistic 3D models of creatures which would appear in future planets. Of course, it is only predictions and if we won’t be able to check it until we actually visit these planets.

However, and that’s where it gets interesting for us, it is not only arty people who unleash their imagination. Kawagushi is so much into his ideas that he prepared a simulation environment to analyze interactions between the virtual creatures and the planet. Thus he makes sure these creatures can actually live – and thus potentially exist.

Again, it’s pretty far from the traditional scientific methods but when you think about it, art can definitely bring new ideas to engineering. That’s why we were then invited to round tables and seminars to talk about 3D as a media, define eco-design and explain collaborative communication. Topics such as serious gaming or sustainable innovation were of course at the very heart of the debate.

It’s pretty interesting to see how people are passionate about new technologies and their impact on our future: novices and professionals were equally excited by everything they saw! From complex demos from researchers to 3DVIA shows targeting the general public, they were all attracted by 3D and its future.

And you, how do you see our future?

PS: Another thing people loved was Exalead Labs and its Music Mashup! Ok it’s not 3D things but people still loved it! ;-)

V6 on the Cloud!

Dassault Systemes Application Innovation Summit

Dominique Florack @ 3DS Application Innovation Summit

As announced earlier, Dassault Systemes’ Application Innovation Summit brought a lot of surprises. But there’s one I thought you’d like very much: V6 is going on the cloud.

Right from the beginning, Dominique Florack, our Senior EVP Products Research & Development, pointed out the rise of Cloud Computing as a major trend of the industry. With increasing use of mobile devices which power grows as fast as Warner Bros’ Roadrunner, Cloud Computing is the thing we have to care about.

Cloud Computing Dassault SystemesAs such, 3DS had to review its entire approach to implementing solutions in customers’ companies. The old way was to deploy products on every computer. Needless to say it takes time: 12 months to the best, 18 on average. The new way is about adopting the product.

Ok I bet it’s tough to get it so I’m gonna give you an example… Say you need 3DVIA Studio. You simply go to our AppStore, buy it and within seconds (and by seconds, I mean seconds) and without any previous installation, it runs on your computer. Via the Cloud.

What’s the common expression for that kind of stuff again? It rocks!!

Don’t you love it? :-)
