This IDC Perspective presents an overview of key takeaways from Dassault Systèmes 2019 Industry Analyst meeting, with a specific focus on Dassault Systèmes Retail and CPG vision and capabilities. In the retail and CPG breakouts, DS outlined the company's new business and technology-related initiatives and key products, as well as its road map, major accomplishments, and growth among strategic partners and customers.
Leslie Hand, VP, IDC Retail Insights, stated, "With the acquisition of Centric Software and COSMOlogic and the reorganization of the executive teams, the Dassault Systèmes Retail and CPG organization has improved industry subsegment focus and sales. Importantly, the business value of working with 3DS has multiplied, as the 3DEXPERIENCE platform strategy aligns perfectly with retail and CPG strategies to digitally transform, improving the ability to rapidly innovate products and services for the customer. As a leader in core PLM, Dassault Systèmes addresses fundamental product management needs but then adds much more value with applications that improve product creation, visualization, formulation, simulation, merchandising, marketing, and customer analytics."
