By doing so they will also transform their innovation process from ideas to delivery with 3DEXPERIENCE,” said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO of Dassault Systèmes. “With its renewed management team and the legacy that Ludwig Fuchs leaves, we will serve industry even better and deliver greater value for customers.”
