PARIS, France – December 4, 2012 — Sogeti High Tech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Capgemini group, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Sogeti High Tech has adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. By investing in Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its applications, Sogeti High Tech plans to deliver the best industry solution experiences and improve project performance efficiency for customers in the aerospace & defence, space, energy and transportation & mobility industries. Sogeti High Tech has been a strategic integration partner of Dassault Systèmes since signing an industry solution alliance in 2008.
“As part of Sogeti High Tech and Dassault Systèmes’ joint drive to innovate, we have decided to invest and migrate our equipment pool to Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, specifically its CATIA, ENOVIA and SIMULIA applications. This migration is very large-scale and significant for a services company, encompassing over 250 workstations and over 150 additional industry products. Our aim is to give our engineering teams the benefit of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s new capabilities, openness, and innovative collaborative functionalities,” said Laurent Rouchouse, CIO, Sogeti High Tech.
Thanks to the 2008 industry solution alliance, Sogeti High Tech has been able to consolidate its strong leadership in the PLM market. With today’s announcement, the company exponentially increases its innovation capabilities by changing the way it provides value to its customers, thanks to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform specifically. By adopting the platform, Sogeti High Tech has enabled multiple enterprise-spanning engineering disciplines to communicate in real-time with transparent and visually intuitive simulation data, creating the best services and products for their customers.
In addition, Dassault Systèmes and Sogeti High Tech will keep working together to develop their activities in four fields: simulation, composites, deployment and systems integration, and digital manufacturing.
“As the first service company to commit to such a transformation, we stand to gain an advantage for our teams, who will be able to advise and accompany our customers when they will operate the same transformation,” added Philippe Sottocasa, Vice President, Business Development, Sogeti High Tech. “Now, with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we have an integrated environment for business collaboration. Our offices will benefit from the latest generation of 3D and simulation data management tools, combined with the creation of a new training centre within Sogeti High Tech.”
“2012 marks the year in which we brought industry solution experiences to the customers we serve in our industries to let them create innovative product experiences. This is critical to our partners to scale their business by better embracing their ultimate customers’ needs,” said Bruno Latchague, Executive Vice President, Global Sales Strategy & Operations, Value Solutions, Dassault Systèmes. “Combining Sogeti High Tech’s deep expertise in key industries with our 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we will create unparalleled value for our joint customers.”
