Presentation

Dassault Systèmes is a science-based, innovation-driven, business-minded and long-term-oriented company. The company’s 20,000 employees are driven by this ambition. This also translates into a high level of market confidence and trust among its 270,000 enterprise customers in almost 140 countries. Dassault Systèmes is a European company with a global presence and market reach.

The solutions of Dassault Systèmes transform the way products are designed, simulated, produced, marketed and supported, leveraging the virtual world to improve the real world. Dassault Systèmes has helped industrials disrupt how products are designed and produced - with 3D design, with 3D digital mock-up (DMU), with 3D Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and now with 3DEXPERIENCE.

Dassault Systèmes focus on developing solutions in Life Sciences & Healthcare alongside two other strategic sectors of the economy : Manufacturing Industries and Infrastructure & Cities.

Global leader in sustainable innovation, Dassault Systèmes provides the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, a virtual experience platform that allows customers to create innovative new products and services, and ultimately address the major challenges facing the world today : cities (how to create cities that are great places to live in ?) ; resources (how to use them in a sustainable way ?) ; healthcare (how can it be both globally managed and personalized ?) ; how to supply and produce; and education and research (how to empower the workforce of the future ?).

History

Dassault Systèmes was established in 1981 through the spin-off of a small team of engineers from Dassault Aviation, which was developing 3D surfacing modeling software to design wind tunnel models and reduce cycle times for wind tunnel testing. Dassault Systèmes entered into a distribution agreement with IBM the same year and started to sell its software under the CATIA brand. With the introduction of the Version 3 (“V3”) architecture in 1986, Dassault Systèmes laid the foundations of 3D modeling for product design.

Through the work with large industrial customers, Dassault Systèmes learned how important it was for them to have a software solution that would support the design of highly diversified parts in 3D. The growing adoption of 3D design for all components of complex products, such as airplanes and cars, triggered the vision for transforming the 3D part design process into a systematic integrated product design.

The Version 4 (“V4”) architecture was thus created, opening new possibilities to realize full digital mockups (DMU) of any product. V4-architected software solutions helped customers reduce the number of physical prototypes and substantially shorten product development cycle times, while making global engineering a reality as engineers were able to share their work across the globe virtually.

In 1999, Dassault Systèmes introduced its new Version 5 (“V5”) software architecture, which served as the foundation for a robust 3D product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. In conjunction with its strategy and product portfolio development plans, Dassault Systèmes undertook a series of targeted acquisitions to expand our software applications offering to include digital manufacturing, realistic simulation, product data management and enterprise business process collaboration.

Building on its work in 3D, 3D DMU and 3D PLM, Dassault Systèmes unveiled in 2012 its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, designed to support its customers’ innovation processes and deliver truly new and rewarding experiences for their end-users.

In 2020, Dassault Systèmes announced the extension of 3DEXPERIENCE from things to life, with the ambition to invent the dynamic virtual twin of the human body.

Innovation

Dassault Systèmes is a global leader in sustainable innovation. We provide a virtual experience platform that allows customers to create innovative new products and services, and ultimately address the major challenges facing the world today: cities (how to create cities that are great places to live in ?) ; resources (how to use them in a sustainable way ?) ; healthcare (how can it be both globally managed and personalized ?) ; how to supply and produce ; and education and research (how to empower the workforce of the future ?).

We believe that there is a new world to imagine, create and build by combining science, art and technology. This led us, in 2012, to define our new horizon which we call 3DEXPERIENCE.
Indeed, achieving a more sustainable future is only possible by leveraging the virtual world.
At Dassault Systèmes we believe that virtual worlds extend and improve the real world.
