To reach our ambitious mission on strategy objectives, over the last three years we have completely reshaped our applications portfolio and adapted all facets of our organization.
Research and development's significant efforts were quite visible in the first quarter of 2014, where we delivered our 3Dexperience platform and introduced an expanded portfolio of Industry Solution Experiences, including our first cloud-plus mobile solutions.
And this effort followed a massive simplification of our product portfolio. 2014 was a significant year, too, of progress in terms of advancing on our purpose and expanding our addressable market.
Photosphere, biosphere, geosphere, these are not simply words to us. We are advancing on our purpose with our new brand Biovia focused on biology, chemical and material sciences.
With the introduction of our new part of Geovia, which is called 3Dexperience City, it is possible to now represent the behaviors and experiences of different systems to run a smart city such as water, electrical grid, transportation and people.
And we are advancing on building a comprehensive offering for businesses and people on upstream experience thinking to save on marketing.
This year, we added design of molecules with the creation of Biovia Global Business operation planning, with the acquisition of Quintiq, on digital marketing with the creation of 3Dxcite.
The 3Dexperience platform is a critical enabler of our strategy, gathering altogether all our applications for the best product on Industry Solution Experience. Client engagements show the comprehensive nature and range of our offer:
- Lamborghini has adopted 3Dxcite to offer an online configurator for potential customers, including gaming features, where the designed car is ready for an online drive.
- Carlsberg, the fourth largest brewer in the world has selected Quintiq to help manage sales and operations planning, master production scaling and detailed scheduling for 41 breweries in China.
- And Mead Johnson Nutrition is using Biovia solution for compliance for pediatric nutrition products.
The 3Dexperience platform is also a critical enabler to our cloud-plus mobile strategy. We launched our first cloud offering during 2014. It is clear that the value of connecting people quickly, easily to work and collaborate altogether is a game changer in areas such as project management, productivity, closer connectivity between design and manufacturing, among many other benefits in terms of simplicity and cost.
The last three years in total have been about creating a new Dassault Systemes to well orient ourselves to our next decade long vision with 3Dexperience , and our expanded purpose, sustainable innovation for product nature and life, and our Social Industry Experience strategy. We are now positioned to begin to accelerate our execution. With the many assets we now are in place, Dassault Systemes is ready to move to the next stage ahead.
