"Dassault Systèmes’ V6 Platform TCO" : A New Report from CIMdata

ANN ARBOR, Michigan — CIMdata, the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) consulting and research firm released a new report entitled “Dassault Systèmes’ V6 Platform TCO.” This review presents CIMdata’s perspectives on how the V6 platform from Dassault Systèmes’ benefits companies that adopt it in order to support their product design and manufacture processes.

Total cost of ownership (TCO) drives PLM deployment strategies by informing organizations about both associated costs and benefits—used to guide both PLM selection and ongoing implementation and rollout. This report presents the business case for an integrated and easily-deployed and used PLM solution set for medium- to large-sized companies. It presents essential components of Dassault Systèmes’ V6 platform suite as such a solution.

The development of the V6 platform is a major event in the evolution of Dassault Systèmes’ PLM offerings. This paper presents the major drivers for why this new architecture is important in the current PLM market space and how it provides tangible and important benefits to, and lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) of PLM for companies that adopt V6.

This paper includes comments from companies that have adopted V6, in addition to CIMdata’s opinion on the value of V6. According to John MacKrell, CIMdata consultant, “Direct feedback from customers that CIMdata interviewed for this report confirms that they are able to lower their overall TCO through key V6 features.” Copies of the “Dassault Systèmes’ V6 Platform TCO” CIMdata report are available here at no cost.
