This has certainly been a good year for the "New UGS." After gaining its freedom through private investment from former parent EDS, the company has acquired some complementary companies and technologies, refocused its attentions on its diverse and comprehensive product lines, and has had strong financial performance, to boot. With almost 4 million licensed seats and over 40,000 customers worldwide, UGS is in an enviable position in the MCAD/PLM space. However, UGS is not alone with regard to its good fortunes, because Dassault Systemes also had strong 2004 financials and growth. Things seem to be heading in the right direction, at least for now in many sectors of the engineering software
business. The global economy has stabilized somewhat compared with the past few years as companies are committing to longer-term projects. This commitment has been accompanied by many of these same companies picking up the pace of their businesses by spending money and investing in new tools and processes. All in all, a pretty good picture, at least for the time being.
