Dassault Systémes celebrates 'India's Decade of Innovation' at the India Innovation Summit 2011

Dassault Systémes will inaugurate its India Innovation Summit at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Mumbai. This year's edition covers 6 high-growth industry verticals in India when it comes to adoption of innovative PLM solutions, namely Aerospace and defense, Automotive, Consumer Good - Fashion, Enterprise Search, Energy, Shipbuilding and Industrial equipments.

For Dassault Systémes, India is about to become an epicenter for global innovation, which is driven by the timely amalgamation of multiple factors, namely domestic market, global aspirations of Indian firms and the need for innovation to succeed. Realizing that innovation is the engine for the growth of prosperity and national competitiveness in the 21st century, the President of India has declared 2010 - 2020 as the Decade of Innovation. Against this backdrop, Dassault Systémes brings forth this platform for industry thought leaders to converge and exchange ideas on how innovation and transformation can bring about a sea change in the way the Indian corporate world ensures risk aversion and stable business models. Over the next decade, innovation is expected to be a significant driver of the decade, especially for the Indian IT industry, which is currently exploring new business and delivery models, as well as products and services to remain competitive.

For almost three decades, Dassault Systémes has been at the forefront of all major industries such as automotive, manufacturing, aviation to name a few, providing cutting-edge proven solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of OEMs and suppliers. Dassault Systémes has been instrumental in leading innovation and has been continuously supporting the industry through every step of its technological and business mutations, from 2D to 3D design and complete digital mock-up, to lifecycle management and realistic experience of a product in action.

Dassault Systémes has moved well beyond the traditional industry sectors that have long been the core of PLM, to industry sectors like energy, utilities, construction, consumer goods and retail, life sciences and very importantly, into the areas of sustainability and environment. Moreover, the company is building communities that represent all stakeholders in the lifecycle development process across multiple industries and design disciplines. Providing customers with the capability to innovate and compete in global markets with new and emerging technology remains the company's prime directive.

The high powered CEO panel discussion will be attended by world renowned business leaders such as Dirk Pilat, Head of the Structural Policy Division Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry, OECD, Dr. C Rangarajan, Chairman of Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister apart from Bernard Charlés, President & CEO, Dassault Systemes who presented the Dassault Systémes way forward for technological innovation in India.
