Dassault Systèmes Announces Full Access to ENOVIA MatrixOne’s Business Process Capabilities for all CATIA/ ENOVIA VPLM Users

Expanded Offering Based on ENOVIA SOA Architecture

Charlotte, NC, May 9, 2007—Dassault Systèmes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions is delivering full access to ENOVIA MatrixOne’s collaborative process capabilities for all CATIA/ ENOVIA VPLM users as part of its ENOVIA MatrixOne 10.7.1 solution, announced today. DS is fully leveraging the unique power of the ENOVIA open SOA architecture to seamlessly integrate any business process and application, resulting in unmatched benefits for customers across a variety of industries.

“The concurrent use of ENOVIA MatrixOne and ENOVIA VPLM will allow Honda to deploy a unified business process that connects complex engineering activities to business process management in a seamless collaborative environment, enabling Honda to deliver new products to market more quickly,” explains Hideyuki Tanaka, manager of Computed Integrated Systems 3 Department at HONDA R&D Auto Tochigi, in charge of PLM.

“Less than a year after DS’s acquisition of MatrixOne, DS is delivering a global ENOVIA solution combining the detailed product knowledge of its CATIA/ ENOVIA VPLM offering with the enterprise visibility and powerful collaborative business process management capabilities of ENOVIA MatrixOne. This is part of our strategy to provide maximum value to our customers and the most comprehensive PLM offering on the market,” says Joel Lemke, ENOVIA CEO, Dassault Systèmes.

DS’s CATIA/ ENOVIA VPLM customers, thanks to ENOVIA’s flexible SOA infrastructure, will have full access to the powerful collaborative business process capabilities offered by the ENOVIA MatrixOne offering.  Direct access from ENOVIA MatrixOne to the ENOVIA VPLM engineering work-in-progress environment will give project managers real-time visibility in to engineering activity and project status, allowing them to identify potential issues early in the product development process – reducing time and costs while improving decision making.  Customers will also benefit from a new ENOVIA solution that combines management of design work-in-process and X-BOM views, seamlessly integrating design and engineering communities with the rest of the enterprise.
