Moreover, given Siemens’ automation origins and slew of related plant-level software acquisitions over the years as well as Dassault Systemes’ more

Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments


Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing, and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go

catia caa  mid-market category, and Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX , and PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E ) in the large enterprise category. For the latter, I don’t see subscription or cloud models coming any time soon. The reason for Autodesk to do pay-as-you-go is that it fits with the vendor’s overall strategy in how it targets professional (and even consumer) users. The reason for Solid Edge to do so is that it is still a smaller player trying to catch up with SolidWorks’ market share. For its part, Read More

Dassault Systèmes Acquires Archividéo and FE-DESIGN


Dassault Systèmes, a provider of 3D design, 3D digital mockup, and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, is expanding its footprint in the energy, process, and utilities segments. This industry set is expected to grow rapidly to meet the needs to expand energy production, both to grow the global economy and to support demographic changes in view of the depletion of natural resources

Dassault Systèmes recently professed the goal of harmonizing of products, nature, and life through various 3DEXPERIENCE universes, and the company’s solid Q2 2013 results bear out this strategy.

Meet the New (Revolutionized) Progress Software


According to TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic, some solid, growing, and profitable software companies never get the respect they deserve. Progress Software is one such company. Its OpenEdge platform is now fully enabled for business process management and for the cloud, and it has a winning team of acquisitions. Has Progress finally found the right balance of revenue streams and diversification to be more than the sum of its parts?

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose.

Aras Announces VPLM for Autodesk Vault


A week before the Autodesk University 2012 conference, Aras, a provider of enterprise-class open source product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions, announced the launch of Aras VPLM, a commercial offering designed specifically for companies that run Autodesk Vault with Inventor for three-dimensional product design and AutoCAD for two-dimensional design.

Dassault Systèmes Acquires SIMPOE


On the heels of recent tuck-in acquisitions, Dassault Systèmes has made yet another industry-specific acquisition, again for an undisclosed amount. This time it's SIMPOE, a France-based provider of plastic injection molding manufacturing simulation software. The acquisition of SIMPOE will expand Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE umbrella platform and its SIMULIA, CATIA, and

catia caa  platform and its SIMULIA, CATIA , and SolidWorks applications in the plastic parts domain. Plastic injection molding, one of the most common processes of plastic forming, is used in the mass production of complex and sophisticated parts. Plastics remain a crucial part of today’s products, which are increasingly complex, both in shape and production, as well as the speed with which they are brought to market. SIMPOE will continue to offer its solution, covering the entire plastics injection molding Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog I talked about market shifts and technological changes that are reshaping the competitive landscape for manufacturing firms, based on PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann’s seven trends, which formed the backbone of his keynote presentation at the PTC Live Global 2013 event held in California in June. PTC Live Global also had a companion Service Exchange (formerly Servigistics Exchange

One can then decide to either make changes around these native files (via wrappers) in Creo or change them directly, but then you must save them as Creo objects. If PTC can pull this off, it would be a major breakthrough, since now companies could use Creo instead of having four different CAD systems and designers (i.e., to handle the Creo, SolidWorks, NX, and older CATIA files). Other CAD formats, say, Autodesk Inventor and CATIA V6 , will Read More

Dassault’s Consumer Experience Management, Virtually Yours


Product lifecycle management (PLM) for retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) is usually seen as a lighter version of more complex systems used by manufacturing companies to design sophisticated industrial products. Dassault Systèmes is one of the few vendors to offer PLM solutions that specifically address customer experience in retail. In this article, TEC analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu shows you how retailers can use the Dassault Systèmes solution for customer experience.

But Dassault Systèmes approaches the customer experience from a wide angle, offering Read More

Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog, TEC's P.J. Jakovljevic looked at the main themes of the Siemens PLM Conference 2014 he recently attended, including Siemens’ “realize innovation” strategy. Here are his thoughts regarding the rest of the conference, with a look at what’s new with “catalysts” and Teamcenter, and what else can be expected from the product lifecycle management (PLM) vendor in 2014 and beyond.

Such coups are rare at that level, and CATIA continues to grow in double digits, but most likely by finding new CAD customers in industries where NX and Creo are not that active, e.g., fashion, architecture, composite materials, etc. NX and Tecnomatix users should soon benefit from the capabilities coming from LMS mechatronic simulation, Kineo robotic path optimization, and even some third-party solutions (e.g., Bentley Systems ’ point clouds).   This year the Read More
