While some are already familiar with the notion of the cloud, others are still waiting for the concept to be fully proven before embracing it.

What is the cloud?

It means being able to store data on a remote server instead of on a local physical machine. This means stored data can be accessed anywhere, anytime. The only drawback is that you need an Internet connection.

In recent years, the cloud has become increasingly important. The main result is a change in our consumption patterns.

In fact, you may already be using cloud solutions such as Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, Apple iCloud…. It also changes your personal habits. For example, to listen to music with Spotify, Tidal, Appel Music or watch films and series on Netflix.

Even though the cloud is becoming more and more widespread, and the switch from personal life to the cloud has already taken place for many people, it’s taking longer in the business world.

Dassault Systèmes in the cloud dynamic

2020 is the year of change and innovation for 3D CAD. On July 6, Dassault Systèmes released its 100% cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. This is the new version and new way of using 3D CAD software such as SOLIDWORKS and CATIA.

This platform is attracting increasing attention.

The 100% Cloud 3DEXPERIENCE® platform

You can access 3DEXPERIENCE®directly through your web browser. This platform gives you access to your data, and design applications are managed directly in the cloud.

Cloud & Security

The biggest concern for professionals is data protection. This fear is often accompanied by a lack of understanding of the concept of the cloud. Dassault Systèmes ensures the security of your data. Many structures have confidence in this security. We can mention AIRBUS, TESLA and others.

Cloud & Mobility

Thanks to the cloud, you can now create, edit and share your work on different devices, anywhere. It’s the agile solution that removes any practicality barriers you may have encountered. Your 3D CAD software can be used in the office, at home or on the move, on your phone or tablet.

Cloud & Collaboration

Collaborate simultaneously with all your stakeholders worldwide.

One of the major advantages of this 100% cloud solution is its total modularity. You’ll be able to add users very easily. So you won’t have to worry about an additional license.

Simplified maintenance

Say goodbye to maintenance contracts and hello to automatic updates! You’ll have access to an update every three months, which removes the need for annual interviews for traditional licenses. This means you’ll always be working on the latest developments and won’t fall behind.
