“What is the “secret” of true visionaries and innovators? While there are probably many, one of them is clearly the view from where they stand.
Like Isaac Newton said, ”If I can see further than anyone else, it’s only because I’m standing on the shoulders of giants.” This line rings true to this day: Would Steve Jobs have invented the smartphone without Motorola’s Martin Cooper having already created the mobile phone?

Dassault Systèmes’ CEO, Bernard Charles, is a man with innovative dreams. He also took the PLM idea further by introducing the basic principles of a Product Innovation Platform, reflected in the 3DEXPERIENCE concept. But like all innovators, he too is “standing on the shoulders of giants.” For example, without PTC founder Samuel Geisberg’s, ingenious parametric, associative feature-based, solid CAD modeling solution, or Bill Gates’ Microsoft solutions, PLM wouldn’t look the same.
Now Charles and his team has come up with an innovation: The “3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace.”
“With 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace, we transform the supply chain into a value chain; a single, virtual, social, entrepreneurial and a groundbreaking new way of doing business,” says Charlès.
