"Dassault Systemes is fully supporting the new capabilities of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system," says Sanjay Parthasarathy, corporate vice president, Developer and Platform Evangelism Group at Microsoft. "With an enhanced user experience in a common 3D environment, 3D real-time collaboration in context, easy integration with the 2007 Office system and built on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Dassault Systemes will help make PLM more accessible for our mutual customers." As part of DS's commitment to 3D democratization and making PLM pervasive, the company has been working closely with Microsoft to deliver Windows Vista certified versions of all products, including the full V5 PLM portfolio and Solidworks.
DS's ENOVIA 3D Live, the first 3D collaborative intelligence solution, exploits DS's V5 SOA architecture for online applications. Via an intuitive user interface, ENOVIA 3D Live enables any individual to instantly search and navigate any PLM information, regardless of location, source or format. On demand 3D collaboration between users delivers unique breakthroughs for innovative PLM processes in all markets, connecting people anywhere on any device. The ENOVIA 3D Live user experience takes full advantage of Windows Vista's new features in usability, performance, security and real-time collaboration. DS's full V5 PLM portfolio: CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA and SIMULIA will maximize Windows Vista coupled with ENOVIA 3D Live's groundbreaking capabilities.
"This major milestone delivers on our shared vision of making PLM pervasive and democratizing 3D," explains Dominique Florack, executive vice president, Strategy, R&D, Dassault Systemes. "We are extending the concept of business intelligence to collaborative intelligence by making product and process information easy to access and re-use." Based on DS's V5 SOA strategy, the company works hand in hand with Microsoft to develop world class Windows Vista and Microsoft .NET Framework-based solutions, which encompass DS's ENOVIA VPLM, ENOVIA SmarTeam and ENOVIA MatrixOne, ENOVIA MatrixOne being the winning solution for enterprise collaborative business processes. Other enhancements include compatibility between 3DXML from DS and Windows Vista, for easy 3D exchange. Easy integration with the 2007 Office system makes PLM information available in familiar Office applications, for example, full integration between Microsoft Word and 3D PLM data to automatically generate technical documents.
Availability of DS's Windows Vista version begins now with Solidworks 2007 and will continue through 2007. Solidworks 2007 is the first 3D CAD product available and certified by Microsoft for Windows Vista.
