AKTUELLT PÅ ENGINEERING.com: A milestone for TECHNIA – 13,000 users in 3DEXPERIENCE order from medtech company B. Braun
Today's headline news in the PLM world is TECHNIA’s win in a battle that not only gave them an important strategic partnership but also a very large 3DEXPERIENCE implementation order in the Life Sciences segment. Engineering.com can reveal that the global PLM consultant TECHNIA—which is also Dassault Systèmes’ largest solution partner—has landed a big deal in the final round of competition with Siemens Digital Industries. Among other things, the deal involves Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform and is comprised of 13,000 users.
It is the German medical technology company B. Braun that signed the partnership with TECHNIA and Dassault. B. Braun is a $7 billion company that manufactures medical devices and pharmaceutical products and supplies related services, with 65,000 employees and operations in 64 countries
- My take is that this deal represents a breakthrough for advanced PLM in the medical technology area, and there's more to come, says Verdi Ogewell, PLM editor at engineering.com.
For TECHNIA, the B. Braun deal comes as a confirmation that the investment they have made in life sciences has been the right move. It is undoubtedly a “feather in the cap” for CEO Jonas Gejer, and for TECHNIA’s Life Science director, Annelie Uvhagen.
It is also clear that both Dassault and TECHNIA perceived the potential of the life sciences sector, as well as the need for digitizing. In general, this sector has in some aspects lagged behind industries such as automotive, high-tech and the like in terms of broader product innovation platforms with modern digital capabilities. Much is still symbolically done on paper, which can result in processes that make the development work in the R&D and marketing areas move slower and more sluggishly than it potentially could be.
