Business systems of all kinds, from email to HR to accounting, are all moving to the cloud so companies can operate more efficiently and effectively in highly competitive industries.  Dassault Systèmes is bringing the transformative benefits of the cloud to product developers of all sizes with 3DEXPERIENCE CLOUD PDM.

By transitioning to a cloud-based data management system like 3DEXPERIENCE, these companies can make their data simultaneously more accessible and more secure.  Project stakeholders can collaborate in real-time from a single source of truth.  Teams can scale up their software and hardware capabilities virtually instantaneously.

  • Start with Your CAD Solution of Choice

    SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, and many popular third-party CAD solutions can all work together on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

  • Access Your Data Where and When You Want It

    Your product data is available through the web and your CAD tools from wherever you can log into the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

  • Secure Your Data from All Threats

    Dedicated experts safeguard your data 24/7, on multiple levels, and in compliance with strict regulations and standards.

  • Work Together with Powerful Collaborative Tools

    Each 3DEXPERIENCE CLOUD PDM user gets an array of tools for data management, task management, communication, and more.

  • Eliminate Hardware Costs & Responsibilities

    Save on computing costs and IT workhours -- no more purchasing, maintaining, housing, upgrading, and replacing of servers.

  • Simplify Your Expenditures

    Turn your CapEx to OpEx and get a complete PDM system in a single licensed service from one vendor.

  • Scale and Implement in an Instant

    Grow your organization's infrastructure and technical capabilities as fast as you can buy new licenses.

Are you keeping up with your competitors in the cloud?

It Starts with CAD

Plugins for a variety of first- and third-party CAD software automatically sync your design work to the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud and make it available for collaborative efforts with colleagues and further downstream use (for example, by 3DEXPERIENCE STRUCTURAL simulation):

  • Altium Designer
  • AutoCAD
  • Allegro
  • Creo Parametric
  • DraftSight
  • Inventor
  • NX
  • OrCAD
  • Solid Edge

Cloud Data Infrastructure: Safe, Unified, Accessible

  • The web-based 3DEXPERIENCE Platform environment is your gateway to product development data and related tasks.
  • Lightweight web apps serve up your data (in 3D!) for review and management from wherever you have web access, even mobile.
  • Heavier desktop programs such as CAD or CAE software also launch from the web interface.
  • One source of data for all contributors — CAD, CAE, CAM, PLM, and beyond, all up-to-date and collaborating in real time.
  • Data is organized, version controlled, and searchable so you can always find the right files when you need them.
  • Your data is backed up and secure at Dassault Systèmes managed facilities.  Learn more about security in our blog post.
  • No background hardware or software to manage or maintain for 3DEXPERIENCE solutions — always up-to-date, always room to grow.
