Dassault Systemes has completed its merger with MatrixOne, enabling Dassault Systemes' new PLM Collaborative Environment portfolio to take the Enovia brand name.

"MatrixOne brings key assets to DS: an innovative and knowledgeable global team, and powerful business process technology that will accelerate our ability to serve our customers with the most comprehensive collaborative PLM solution on the marketplace," said Bernard Charles, president and CEO of Dassault Systemes. "The merger broadens our industry coverage, particularly in the high-tech, semiconductor, apparel and consumer goods areas." The acquisition of MatrixOne builds on Dassault's almost 9,000 current customer implementations in collaborative PDM software and services.

From the most simple to highly engineered complex products, the Enovia family can now address a broad range of industry needs:

  • Enovia VPLM—3D collaborative virtual product lifecycle management of highly complex product, resource and manufacturing processes in medium and large extended enterprises;

  • Enovia MatrixOne—collaborative product development business processes for enterprises across a wide range of industries; and

  • Enovia SmarTeam—collaborative product data management for small and mid-sized enterprises, engineering departments of larger organizations, and across supply chains.

Dassault and MatrixOne partners are happy with the merger. Ed Stark, vice-president, Capgemini LLC, says, "Capgemini is looking forward to expanding our existing MatrixOne relationship into the Dassault Systemes ecosystem to provide stronger collaborative PLM solutions to an expanded customer base."

Rory Read, Managing Partner, Global Industrial Sector, IBM Global Business Services, says the acquisition "is really a good opportunity to improve our consulting and services business on Dassault Systemes' technology by extending the coverage of the PLM value chain. We will be able to leverage both our strong existing partnership with DS and our experience of MatrixOne projects. This acquisition brings additional value to the Dassault Systemes portfolio, particularly for our clients in the electronic industry. DS will be ideally positioned to offer a comprehensive range of PLM software to this industry."

Patrick McGoldrick, CEO, Tata Technologies Group, says, "Tata and MatrixOne have delivered world-class PLM solutions for many years. The merger allows us to deliver significant value via the solution strengths of MatrixOne and the global system integration capabilities of INCAT, the Tata PLM Brand."
