2. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

The Future of Product Development is Here:

Unite your entire organization from design and manufacturing to service and marketing under one collaborative, interactive environment in the cloud.

As the need for developing engaging consumer experiences increases, and products become more complex and connected, the ability to readily access product development data and effectively collaborate with stakeholders across different locations is more critical than ever. Now any business can take advantage of new capabilities to meet these high-stakes demands: enter the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a cloud-based environment that connects your product development process from design through manufacturing and delivery. Ideal for organizations of any size, as your organization and needs evolve, you can access an expanding portfolio of interconnected tools to manage every aspect of your product lifecycle. The platform provides a single source of truth so your teams can share data securely from anywhere. It empowers organizations to collaborate in real-time from any device, connect with customers and suppliers, and track progress so you can deliver unrivaled products and customer experiences.

Connect Stakeholders and Data for Collaboration

Collaboration is the cornerstone of business. Business Innovation, the foundation of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, digitally connects all stakeholders across the product development process. It enables users to create dashboards and communities that empower teams to share, experiment, and innovate with a higher degree of confidence. Further, Business Innovation securely aggregates data from across the enterprise enabling stakeholders to gather valuable feedback and improve productivity. Business Innovation connects your people and your data in one place to make intelligent, collaboration-based decisions.
