Erzhong Improves Business Agility with Microsoft and Dassault Systemes

PARIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 18, 2007— Dassault Systemes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY) (Paris:DSY), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced today a China customer win. The government-run National Erzhong Group Co., a steel industry heavy equipment manufacturer, has signed a contract to purchase Dassault Systemes' ENOVIA SmarTeam and several Microsoft products, including Microsoft Dynamics(TM) AX enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Microsoft(R) SQL Server(R) and BizTalk(R) Server. The Microsoft-Dassault Systemes solution will provide Erzhong with improved enterprise application interconnectivity for collaborative business processes, accelerating time to market.

"Connecting our PLM and ERP data will give us agility for many business functions, such as bidding, sourcing, procurement and production. As we work with a large supplier network, these functions can be very complex. ENOVIA SmarTeam and Microsoft Dynamics AX will provide us with a holistic snapshot of product-related data to help us make smarter and faster decisions. We are planning to leverage and reuse this information to standardize business processes, like bidding and document management through business templates," says the principal of the Information Technology Dept., Erzhong Group Co.

China is undergoing a market shift from 'Made in China' to 'Created in China'. In line with this transformation, local manufacturers, and particularly government-linked businesses that are very department-focused and dependant on complex business processes and protocols, are seeking new ways to compete with international players and increase global market share. The combination of Microsoft's and Dassault Systemes' solutions provides a rich collaborative environment, a key factor for rapid and scalable data and process integration from multiple enterprise sources, as well as for enhanced product development and quality assurance.

"Microsoft Dynamics AX provides customers with real time insight into their end-to-end business processes as a comprehensive and scalable business management solution," said Kees Hertogh, director, product management, Microsoft Dynamics AX. "By working in combination with Microsoft SQL Server and BizTalk Server, Microsoft Dynamics AX brings increased value to customers to help them make more confident business decisions." ENOVIA SmarTeam supports Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft's data platform solution that delivers increased security, scalability, and availability to enterprise data and analytical applications, while making them easier to build, deploy, and manage. Microsoft's BizTalk Server guarantees a seamless integration between ENOVIA SmarTeam and Microsoft Dynamics AX.

ENOVIA SmarTeam, Dassault Systemes' mid-market solution for collaborative product lifecycle management, including product data management (PDM), enables time savings higher than 50 percent by eliminating wasteful manual tasks such as searching for and managing technical files. Leveraging Microsoft's familiar and easy-to-use User Interface, ENOVIA SmarTeam facilitates the adoption of the solution internally. Furthermore, the advanced technologies in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 help ENOVIA SmarTeam customers reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and drive greater organizational efficiency through enterprise data management and business intelligence. Customers attain more immediate ROI with minimal disruption to day-to-day operations.
