An Open Dialogue about Cloud Security

By Michael

Secure cloud

Back in Feburary of 2014, Dassault Systèmes introduced a disruptive change to how we go to market by putting 3DEXPERIENCE Platform on the cloud. That could be a scary prospect if you are not familiar with either why we did this or how we are securing your collaboration on the cloud, so the intention here is to provide a light introduction and point you to some materials that could help make you reassured.

Introducing the 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud

Let’s start with a quote from Bernard Charlès from July 2013:

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, unified view of their business and ecosystem to create better experiences for their end-consumers.

What I feel Bernard is trying to say is that by de-coupling experience creation from a static On Premise deployment, we are able to offer 3DEXPERIENCE Platform in a software-as-a-service manner using elastic cloud-based resources. This allows for better social interaction between producers and consumers, more mobility for users of the platform, and significant reductions in the Total Cost of Ownership for the solution.

A Definition of Cloud Computing

But what is the difference between this and, say, massive virtualisation by VMware or hosting services you may ask? Laurent Seror, CEO of Outscale, one of our cloud providers, used the following analogy:

The Voice of Experience: SHoP Architects and SHoP Construction

By Akio

Architecture is a highly collaborative business

Keeping numerous stakeholders – owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, utilities, permitting agencies, fabricators, suppliers and subcontractors – on the same page is a daunting task.

With so many players, the industry’s traditional, tried-and-true method for communication has been to develop dense and detailed drawing packages, which are then rolled into tubes and delivered by courier or overnight mail. As soon as drawings are received changes occur, requiring the revision, production and delivery of an entirely new set.

Botswana Innovation Hub

Today, with international projects and teams spread across the globe, such as they are for the Botswana Innovation Hub in Gaborone, the importance of having an efficient and effective system for project communication is greater than ever.

Love.by.me, YOUR 3D-printed Jewel

By Fred

Would you like to surprise your loved ones ? Build a unique piece of jewelry with your names in 3D — online , easy, and starting from 13€!

Jewelry reinvented – a new innovative design concept, mixing 3D printing and generative online design: love.by.me (use Chrome or FireFox for a better experience)

Generated on the cloud with CATIA, the 3D design is created from your name and your loved one’s, resulting in a unique piece of jewelry. Available in several sizes, colors and materials (including Silver!), the jewel is 3D-printed, making custom-made jewelry available at an affordable price!

This new type of online 3DEXPERIENCE allows consumers to act on the design intent, ultra-personalization made easy. The frontier between manufacturers and consumers is shrinking as we now can make our own products virtually AND physically. Consumer becomes a Consum’actor!

If you like the love.by.me concept, help us make it viral by sharing pictures of your piece on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter (tag your photo  #winyoursilverheart and #lovebyme ; the most retweeted before June 30th will win a 3D-printed silver heart!)

Watch the video below to see love.by.me in action, or go ahead and create your own 3D-printed heart now :-)
