Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA Analyst Event: Simulation Critical for Digital Transformation
This IDC Perspective provides highlights and analysis of the recent Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA analyst event, held in Providence, Rhode Island.
"Dassault Systèmes has been building out its suite of simulation tools organically and through multiple acquisitions over the past decade, with the goal of giving organizations the 'confidence to simulate anything'," said Jeff Hojlo program director of Product Innovation at IDC. "An important element of experience design and the growth of simulation is 'democratizing' tools to those in the organization other than simulation engineers, such as design and systems engineering, manufacturing engineering, technical sales, and service. Complexity of products, shorter time to market, and the demand for high-quality products make the extended, democratized, use of simulation an important consideration for any organization."
"Beyond its significant presence in the life science industry from BIOVIA, Dassault Systèmes seeks to leverage its core simulation expertise in the industry through its Living Heart and Virtual Human projects," said Alan Louie, research director, Life Sciences, IDC Health Insights. "The ongoing industry shift toward a more information-centric approach to development aligns well with Dassault Systèmes aspirations in the space and should serve the company well as it expands its presence in the industry."
