ENOVIA Brand Consolidation Continues
As part of Dassault’s V6 platform strategy, the ENOVIA organization is continuing to be restructured geographically. Although no official word has been released, multiple sources at Dassault confirm that ENOVIA V6 (ENOVIA Mid-market and ENOVIA High-end) development and other activities are being further centralized in France and in the U.S. (specifically at the new Dassault Americas headquarters in Lowell, MA). Matrix One employees were the first to relocate to the new Lowell offices back in 2007, followed by members of the VPLM team in 2008. A number of SmarTeam employees are planning to relocate to both Lowell and to the main Dassault campus in Velizy-Villacoublay, France.
Despite these moves, ENOVIA SmarTeam V5 development will continue in Israel indefinitely with end-of-life for this version nowhere in sight. Sources at Dassault are quick to note that these organizational shifts are not an indication of a change in the overall ENOVIA product strategy, and that today’s SmarTeam customers can be assured of a path to ENOVIA V6 in the future.
Adaptive is keenly interested in these changes, and in the efforts that Dassault is making to deliver on the promise of PLM 2.0 in ENOVIA V6. If you have questions about this news or about V6, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
