Why Business Innovation?
Business Innovation delivers the foundational applications and services that unite all users in the innovation value chain – establishing social communities with consumers and customers to share, experiment, and innovate effectively throughout the product development process.
3DDashboard delivers the real-time Business Intelligence needed to monitor everything that matters to a business - 24/7, all in one location. Users can follow trends, be alerted by data feeds, and monitor processes and data at the same time.
The 3DDashboard delivers a unified user experience across all the apps by instantiating pre-configured widgets delivered along with the apps. With the 3DDashboard, each user can compose a personal dashboard by selecting relevant widgets from different apps.
Users can interact with other users in the context of the data, using a wide array of configurable widgets. Systematically and consistently analyze data from all sources, and uncover key patterns to assist in making decisions.
With 3DSwym, people at businesses of any size can simply and quickly create their own complete, social innovation environment on the platform. Employees, partners, suppliers, consumers and any other stakeholders become active participants in the innovation process, extending and enriching the ecosystem.
Create communities around common areas of interest, post blogs, review, comment and exchange observations and findings with a broader audience.
Connect to experts by registering members’ skills, qualifications, project information along with descriptions of areas of interest.
Share ideas and participate in discussions to track ideas with an ideation funnel and prioritized based on feedback from all stakeholders including consumers.
Store Your Files and Share With Anyone
3DDrive provides cloud-based SOLIDWORKS® and other files storage and sharing capabilities as an integral part of the platform.
Users can securely store their files on 3DDrive and access them from any device. They can also create folders and share the files with co-workers and collaborators across the value chain.
Users can mashup data from multiple cloud drives including Google Drive and Dropbox. The data from these sources are indexed by the platform search services and are 6WTagged, to enable better navigation and discovery.
Seamless Interaction with SOLIDWORSK Desktop – SOLIDWORKS users can access 3DDrive and use its capabilities directly from inside SOLIDWORKS through an embedded add-in.
Seamlessly interact with 3DDrive from Microsoft Windows Explorer. 3DDrive presents a familiar folder experience to the users. Users can drag and drop their files into the 3DDrive and operate using familiar commands like copy and paste, lending to rapid adoption.
3D Web-based Preview for All Your Files
You do not need to have a SOLIDWORKS license to get a full 3D preview of SOLIDWORKS models. 3DPlay provides immersive 3D visualization in the browser, for SOLIDWORKS and other file types. Enhance collaboration with instant visualization of 3D parts and assemblies on all devices.
Zoom, pan and rotate your 3D objects with instinctive multi-touch gestures. Manipulate 3D objects, examine them in an exploded view and annotate them.
Progressive loading allows users to explore the model even before it is completely loaded.
Experience most of the existing 3D CAD file formats as well as 2D content (images and drawings) from a variety of 3DEXPERIENCE platform data sources. Users can also experience SOLIDWORKS, eDrawings and DXF, DWG formats.
3DPassport provides authentication and authorization services on the platform. Administrators can easily maintain user authentication policies like password strength, expiry and configure patterns to detect brute-force attempts at unlocking passwords. 3DPassport also maintains logs to audit access.
3DPassport provides a seamless single sign-on experience across the apps on the platform. 3DPassport can be easily configured to work with other enterprise single-sign-on services.
A higher level of security can be achieved by leveraging 2FA authentication capabilities on the platform. Once configured, the user can use a mobile app to generate a code, to be entered along with the password, for added security.
Single Place for Accessing All Your Apps and Services
The 3DCompass provides a unique and innovative user experience across all 3DEXPERIENCE apps. The 3DCompass experience provides a one-click access to any app with cross-application services visible on the top-bar at all times. This includes the “Add”, “Share”, and “Search” services. Apps may add a bottom-bar menu to provide app-specific services.
Discover Apps. Apps are deployed on the 3DCompass – an app store and navigation infrastructure that provides role-based access to the apps. Users can request access to these apps.
Custom Roles to embed third-party apps in 3DCompass. The administrator can create new roles, associate an icon and include third party apps as part of the role. Administrators can then grant these custom roles to the relevant users.
Best-in-class Search and Filtering Capabilities
It is easy to find your data and/or SOLIDWORKS files with Business Innovation. All the content you create and files you upload is automatically indexed for fast, best in class search and navigation. This includes the SOLIDWORKS and other files from other cloud drives, including Google Drive and Dropbox, providing you with a single place to navigate your cloud data.
3DSearch delivers a unified search capability across the apps on the platform. Content in the platform is tagged automatically with one or more tags describing the content in terms of “Who, What, When, Why, Where, and How.” In addition, users can also add their own tags to filter the search results.
Full-text search allows for all metadata and data stored in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to be searched.
Instantly collaborate and share ideas in 3D. Users collaborate with each other in real-time by using the 3DMessaging service. 3DSwym users can collaborate with each other and with users of native apps in real-time by using the 3DMessaging chat service.
Richer collaboration. App users can also collaborate with other users to share 3D content and markups in real-time.
Always connected. Users can maintain buddy lists and understand status of co-workers in a non-intrusive fashion.
Dynamic Notification System
3DNotifications provide an effective way to update users about any activity on the platform. Notifications can include pictures and links to other content.
Alerts are delivered in real time to users working on the platform.
Pop-up notification alert appears for 5 seconds and takes the user directly to the context of the notification, upon the user clicking on it.
Users can choose to receive notifications from specific apps only. Notifications can be received as an email, alert or just to the notification center by setting a flag.
The notification center provides a convenient way for users to track the notifications along a time line and take appropriate action.
Comment on Your Content and Get Feedback
Comment on content in 3DDrive and 3DSwym and receive feedback from all users sharing the content.
Rich comments. Embed pictures and links to other content in the comments.
Like and unlike to deliver instant feedback to all collaborators.
Deliver notifications to all users mentioned in the comment.
With proper security and role assignment, some users can also be the Platform Administrators. Administrators manage members; assign roles; and content configuration using the “Members & Roles”, “Platform Information”, “3DSwym Control Center” and “3DSwym Analytics” widgets on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Invite users to join the platform and grant roles to users.
