The Economic Times interviews Jeff Ray, new CEO of the SolidWorks division of Dassault Systemes on its arrival in India. Highlights from the interview by Chiranjoy Sen:
-- Currently at $380 million; goal is $1 billion in four years by outgrowing the rest of the industry. [That requires a growth of 30% a year!]
-- One way to grow is to add more software products, primarily around CAD.
-- The focus in 2008 is on performance, reliability, and scalability; future focus is on communicating designs. Quote:
To make it easier for engineers to communicate great designs to a broader audience and to help remove barriers for them. And to make every product in the very first phase of design, a perfect product for our customers.
