Digital Twin
Click to Learn More



The topic of the Digital Twin is exploding in interest as well as complexity. This concept is the new frontier for almost all industries. There are key elements that need to be considered on the part of the digital transformation journey towards enabling leadership in such “Experience-driven” ecosystems. A major capability that needs to be enabled to achieve such leadership is “cognitive” behavior and “continuous” engineering throughout the engineering process, lifecycle and the product/system in service. Some supplemental capabilities towards achieving this level include:

• IoT (Internet of Things) enablement

• Digital Twin capability

• Deep learning

• Predictive analytics

Scalable communication and compute infrastructure are required to address the ever-increasing complexity of products and the engineering processes that help promote innovation.

This roundtable will include leaders from various industries and consultants to discuss the current state and hype of the Digital Twin and its impact on the sustainability of businesses.

Cloud First
Click to Learn More

What is it?

By hosting (on Outscale) a ‘standard’ 3D Experience Platform as a SaaS solution, Dassault provides immediate access to the majority of their solutions, with upgrades and new features deployed sooner than can be done in the traditional ‘on premise’ environment, while also reducing the need for hardware (servers) in the customer network.

Why?

Rapid ramp up to use; access to the latest features and functions; reduced capital expenditures for hardware (servers and storage). AND – develop winning solutions in an ‘agile’ environment without (potentially) the overhead associated with using standard ‘in-house’ solutions.

What are the use cases?

Early access to new features in any of the solutions Dassault provides on the cloud (CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA, BIOVIA, etc.). “Early adopter” training of champions for new releases of software (CATIA on the Platform for CATIA V5 customers) Special projects where collaboration is required with new or existing partners that you do not want to (or cannot) put on your internal Platform.
