Be proactively agile in a dynamic marketplace
High-tech innovation is fueled by fast-paced technological advancements and dynamically changing customer demand. More often than not, it is driven by small- and medium-sized companies with a global reach and a value network of diverse partners.
As they are exposed to global competition and complexities, small- and medium-sized companies must be able to scale their businesses with repeated success without losing inspiration, agility, precision and speed in their operational execution. To accomplish this, every single discipline has to perform optimally on its own and in collaboration with many internal and external stakeholders.
From Push to Pull
Achieving the efficiencies desired by companies with a global reach and complex value networks requires simplifying collaboration on a common innovation platform. Take the example of “BEAMY”, a fictitious product created by Dassault Systèmes to embody the real-life best practices of many leading high-tech companies. BEAMY was born on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, which was used by the entire new product introduction (NPI) team — including all technical and business functions — to achieve breakthrough agility and speed.
Discover, in 6 minutes, how to simplify collaboration and orchestrate the entire value network to accelerate the creation of new consumer electronics.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is secure, open and inclusive. Available on -premise and on the cloud, it is able to scale from a few individual users to hundreds of thousands. Companies can start small in selected processes, and grow the user base according to their own roadmap of digital transformation. Discover how to accelerate key innovation processes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform:
Ideation and Concepts
Monitor trends easily, and effectively engage diverse stakeholders to foster relevant feedback and consensus for the best ideas. Share designs and key performance indicators (KPIs) with open, yet secure, communities. Initiate formal requirements to the engineering team rapidly to ensure that the best ideas get fast-tracked.

After your great idea has germinated, synchronize the mechatronics development via frictionless collaboration on a common data model. Leverage simulation to validate performance early in the process when changes and product variant experimentation are still low-cost. Discover more.
Beyond Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
Product data management (PDM) solutions and integrated design environments (IDE) were initially developed to support their own processes separately. Consequently, all disciplines typically maintain their set of product data in separate systems and databases, creating silos of information. PLM addresses some of these collaboration challenges; however, high-tech innovators need to move beyond PLM to connect dynamic and diverse value networks to increase agility, accelerate innovation and reduce business risk.

Designing Smart Products Smartly
Smart products leverage an intelligent combination of mechanical, electronics, and software to deliver capabilities that simply weren’t achievable before. Today’s products are more responsive, adaptable, interconnected, and portable than ever. Technology
has become so essential, customers expect it. Consequently, the number of smart products will continue to grow. Even 25% of companies that have not already made their products smarter, plan to add software and electronics over the next five years. In
fact, 52% of companies developing smart products fear losing market share unless they continually make products smarter. On top of that, 47% worry about reduced revenue.
However, while smart products create opportunity, they also introduce more complexity and with that, new challenges. To overcome these challenges, how can companies mature their processes for developing smart products?
