The cloud makes disruptive business models – from Amazon and Alibaba to Uber and Airbnb – possible. To compete in a digital world, established companies need the same advantages that have powered these disruptive digital natives, and they’re only available on the cloud. So why are some enterprises hesitating? Compass examines the benefits of the cloud and debunks the myths that discourage companies from responding to the Cloud Imperative in the Age of Experience.

A word from our CEO

Why is Dassault Systèmes disruptive? Because we are reducing the distance between the virtual world and the real world to zero. Why is the cloud disruptive? For the exact same reason – it reduces the distance between people to zero.

This new-found proximity is giving rise to entirely new models for business. Through its ability to create communities freed from the limits of time and distance, the cloud is driving measurable leaps in humanity’s potential to harmonize product, nature and life.

The cloud also reinforces the importance of virtual universes. Today, our customers use real-world data gathered via the cloud to inform the virtual world and, in turn, use the insights gained in the virtual world to improve the real one.

Shrinking the distance between the virtual and real is the power of Dassault Systèmes. Reducing the distance between people is the promise of the cloud. Combine the two – the advantage of virtual universes and the creativity of cloud-connected people – and you change the world. We are ready now.

Bernard Charlès
Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer
