During Dassault Systemes' conference call last week with financial analysts, ceo Bernard Charles said that his company has been keeping Solidworks users up to date:
...we have high level of motivation from the user community. And of course, this is critical because we are preparing the evolution of the generation of Solidworks to continue to unify our 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which was also stated during the announcement.
We explained to our user community that over time, the convergence between Solidworks and the 3DEXPERIENCE [a.k.a. "the V6 architecture"] platform will bring benefits, being able to provide upside with application portfolio.
Later, he added:
...one multi-platform 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This is multi-brand, it enables CATIA, SIMULIA, EXALEAD, NETVIBES, INOVIA, 3DSWYM. But you don’t see the products anymore or the brands. What you see is the full solution to do the job and really addressed the needs.
