On the Cloud delivers flexibility and easy access to the information you need, when you need it.

Move your business to the next level and network your organisation into a social design community.

Unique collaborative business experience platform on the cloud

Instant Collaboration

CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE On the Cloud uniquely supports “real-time design collaboration”. Share and collaborate without any constraints across projects, and communicate in 3D with stakeholders across geographical boundaries.

Engineering Management

What sets 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud apart from other standard CAD-CAM solutions is the fully automated and integrated document management system to control revisions, as well as fully developed E-BOM and project management capability.

All the applications (apps) are inherent and associated with the CATIA design model.

Digital advantages

Digital technology trends such as mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), big data and analytics are changing business processes and disrupting business models. The common denominator among them, both a transformative force and a prime enabler for all, is the cloud.

The cloud delivers what businesses require to make a digital transformation: high flexibility, on-demand access anytime, anywhere, immediate availability of advanced software without associated hardware, but above all, it delivers simplicity. 

The cloud is the foundation of tomorrow’s next-generation applications and business processes.

Unique collaborative business experience platform on the cloud

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a single point of access and common interface for all applications and enables all business units – design, engineering, simulation, manufacturing, sales, marketing, finance, procurement and management – to engage in collaborative innovation.

Each subscription includes instant access to unique collaborative applications embedded within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform such as:

  • 3D design, engineering, modelling, simulation, data management and process management on the cloud,
  • Social communication, community building and ideation applications for collaborative innovation,
  • 3D visualization, analytics and dashboarding for knowledge sharing and data-driven decision-making for communities.

For fast ramp-up and maximum effectiveness, all applications, services and content are available as packages per specific users with defined roles (eg Additive Manufacturing Engineer, Aero Surface Modeler, and Car Design Ergonomist etc) and tailored according to each of Dassault Systemes’ Industry Solution Experiences.  Subscribers can immediately experiment and access all of these essential tools.

Company Restructuring & Software Licencing

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis companies in the aerospace design and manufacturing sector have been particularly affected by the economic impact of the disruption to worldwide economies. Some have seen their orders and revenues drop immediately by sometimes 50% driven by the reduction in production of new aircraft.  

These companies have had to quickly reduce costs and take advantage of any state support.

However, those with low cash reserves have seen the need to restructure through some form of merger, sale or even some type of insolvency process.
