ENOVIA technology provides the core of the Dassault Systèmes V6 platform unveiled in June 2008. Built on a highly flexible and scalable service oriented architecture (SOA), the ENOVIA V6 solution allows companies to create a single version of the truth by developing online communities to share and collaborate on global product information. ENOVIA has also delivered 12 new industry Accelerators over the past year. These Accelerators speed return on customer investment by using PLM best practices to ensure a rapid deployment. ENOVIA also experienced strong growth in the mid-market with the ENOVIA SmarTeam Express portfolio of out-of-the box PLM solutions built specifically for small and medium-sized companies.
Over the past year ENOVIA has announced important wins in apparel (Guess, Pacific Brands and Trent Ltd.) the consumer packaged goods market (Procter & Gamble), life sciences (Beckman Coulter), high tech (Nokia Siemens Networks and novero) semiconductor (INSIDE Contactless and GUC), energy (OKG, Telvent/Abengoa, Grupo Guascor and Solarcentury).
“V6 was designed for these challenging economic times. All of our customers are trying to manage their business for sustainable growth in this difficult financial climate. We help them accelerate revenue while lowering costs with industry-specific solutions that address their own unique circumstances and business environment,” says Michel Tellier, CEO, ENOVIA, Dassault Systèmes. “Our continued investment in technology and strategic partnerships has enabled us to extend our leadership position to incorporate new market opportunities.”
In addition to its well established alliances with Integware in the life sciences/CPG markets and a variety of companies in high tech (including Microsoft, Tetra Tech, and Kalypso), ENOVIA has aggressively expanded its reach in retail, footwear and apparel. As well as its partnership with Wing Tai’s Zymmetry Group for apparel sourcing, ENOVIA entered into an agreement in March 2009 with i-generator to work together on the design and development of ENOVIA solutions for global footwear manufacturers and their supply chains which will help them to reduce cost and streamline their product development processes.
