Razorleaf had the opportunity to participate in a Dassault event called POWER’BY Days. During the event, we learned that POWER’BY is a strategy and that the functionality is real and available both on-premise and on-cloud.
Technophiles the world over are buzzing about Microsoft’s announcement of the HoloLens product. This holographic augmented reality platform is bubbling with cool factor, but could have a significant impact on engineering and manufacturing software.
Dassault’s primary license server, DSLS, has some pretty interesting features, but we just ran into one that could be applicable in a number of situations.
Human hearts, 3D printers, gold mines, and traffic management are not necessarily the things you would expect out of PLM software vendors, but these are all related to the evolving strategies of these companies.
It might not be breaking news, but PLM technology users have been awash in new licensing options lately. From monthly subscriptions to all-you-can-eat license plans, major vendors like Dassault, Autodesk, Aras, and more have been bringing new license options to the table – and end-users seem to be the real winners.
There are three main events each year for people interested in software products from Dassault Systèmes: COE Annual Conference (held in the spring), 3DExperience Forum (typically held in November), and SolidWorks World (held in late January or early February).
ENOVIA SmarTeam V5-6R2013 was recently released, and there are a few noteworthy points about the release. This is the thirteenth release of ENOVIA SmarTeam version 5 (the first release of V5 was V5R10 and V5R15 was skipped), and it includes very limited enhancements as well as a number of bug fixes.
The clock is ticking now that Dassault Systemes has announced that it will no longer support the IBM License Use Manager (LUM) technology for its product licensing needs after December 31, 2013. Current LUM clients are being asked to migrate to the currently available Dassault Systemes License Server (DSLS).
Those accustomed to the familiar V5 version lexicon that has been in use by Dassault Systemès for roughly 15 years are soon to learn a new naming schema for all V5 products, starting with V5R22. There is method to Dassault’s madness with the change in naming system, but the new versions are a mouthful.
Even if you’re not able to attend COE 2012 Annual Conference this year, join us for live updates from the event by following us on Twitter. Razorleaf is also presenting at the event, and we are posting our presentations to www.razorleaf.com/coe2012.
