A word from our CEO

Major trading powers of the past built upon trading routes and posts. Today, platforms are the way to make your business indispensable. They are the value creation environment, operating system and business model of the Experience Economy. Today, content, products and services are not enough. Being experts, manufacturers or engineers aren’t enough. The companies that succeed will be those that reduce to zero the distance between places, people, ideas and solutions.

More than a transformational technology, platforms represent a holistic approach to innovation: a new way of thinking, learning, acting and interacting. A new world where we are all contributors and all consumers. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform brings together people so that they imagine new concepts together, then create, operate, observe and augment them in the real and the virtual world, and finally experience them. It harnesses the power of our collective experience, knowledge and inspiration to harmonize product, nature and life.
