Are you cloud weary? Tired of the hype, the nebulous promises and the confusing array of cloud offers? Worried that you’re behind the curve of a disruptive technology with enormous transformative potential?

If so, this issue of Compass is for you.

Our cover section explains in clear terms why the cloud computing model is radically different from your data center’s technology. It looks at how these differences enable the competitive advantage you’ve struggled to wring from your legacy IT investment. It also examines why leading analyst firms, including IDC and Gartner, believe that the move to the cloud is no longer a matter of if, but of when.

Once you make the choice to “go cloud,” you have a number of other decisions to make. IaaS, PaaS or SaaS? Public, private or hybrid? Which hosting provider? Which software provider? Whatever you choose, one thing is certain: cloud computing is one of those truly disruptive market opportunities that makes or breaks companies.

In today’s crowded cloud marketplace, some SaaS providers offer reliability. Others emphasize performance, ecosystem or easy management. At Dassault Systèmes, we offer choice.

Businesses are looking for solutions beyond simple infrastructure. They want preconfigured business applications that can be easily deployed, much like what consumers get from an app store, or what IDC calls “Innovative Industry Solutions.”

These applications cannot be “light” versions of last-generation software. To maximize the power of Cloud Business in the Age of Experience, companies need applications built to deliver all the advantages of the cloud model while meeting each industry’s unique business and regulatory requirements.

With our developed-for-cloud 3DEXPERIENCE solutions, the best advantages of the cloud are built right in. Your possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.
