Dassault Systèmes Vision 2016+

Dassault Systèmes is successfully transforming their business beyond PLM to become a platform provider. To be more precise, they are becoming a “business innovation platform company.” Our recent discussions show that they’re making significant progress on the 3DEXPERIENCE vision they laid out in 2012, and have been able to transform their business more than I originally suspected when the vision

Dassault Systèmes PLM Vision 2015+

Kalypso PLM Braintrust grows with Metafore Acquisition

I had the chance to talk with … Kalypso’s managing partner Bill Poston and new Kalypso partner Andreas Lindenthal about the recent merger of their companies. PLM implementation experts are in high demand, with most many “big name” consulting firms carrying small teams. In this case, two smaller specialists in product innovation and PLM are coming together to make an even stronger team.

SpaceClaim’s Unique Role in Engineering Software Ecosystem

I had the chance to talk with … Chris Randles and Blake Courter of SpaceClaim recently to better understand their role in the broader engineering software market. SpaceClaim hase certainly managed to shake things up, from their initial introduction to the market with direct modeling, their tongue in cheek Twitter plugin, and now their demonstration of the potential use of multitouch manipulation in 3D modeling. This is a company that is clearly set out to change the status quo, and has succeeded in doing so. Other than shaking things up, though, where is the unique value that SpaceClaim offers, and why do they believe there is room in a consolidating CAD market for a new entrant?
