What is our Complementary Software partner program?

Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Innovative developers build complementary software solutions (cloud and on-premise) that are fully integrated or connected with Dassault Systèmes solutions in specific domains. We work with the best-of-breed companies and leaders in their respective domains, who contribute their industry-specific competencies articulated not only in their complementary products but also via their application know-how available to our joint customers. By developing in our infrastructure environment, partners enable full integration of their applications with Dassault Systèmes product lines for superior performance.


All our Brands are involved in the Complementary Software partner program: CATIA, NETVIBES, BIOVIA, MEDIDATA, GEOVIA, 3DEXCITE, SOLIDWORKS, SIMULIA, 3DVIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA.
