Product data management from IBM and Dassault Systèmes

The challenge

Quickly deliver quality products to market
From the conception of a new product through delivery of that product to the market, maintaining a secure and accurate master copy of product data is a crucial aspect as it promotes a single version of design data across thousands of engineers. This data is also required for design reuse across projects. From simple versioning to regulatory compliance, IBM and Dassault Systèmes can help companies in a broad variety of industries—from aerospace and defense to footwear and apparel—foster innovation through collaboration with global teaming and workspaces.
