Dassault Systèmes Introduces BIOVIA; Combines Accelrys and BioPLM, Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
|By Business Wire
|May 21, 2014 01:27 PM EDT
Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the
3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital
Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today
announced the introduction of its newest brand, BIOVIA. The new brand is
a combination of Dassault Systèmes’ own activities in BioIntelligence,
its collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE technologies, and the leading life
sciences and material sciences applications from the recent acquisition
of Accelrys. The newly acquired company’s solutions focus on biological,
chemical and materials modeling and simulation, research and open
collaborative discovery, enterprise laboratory and quality management,
and process manufacturing intelligence. Today’s announcement was made at
Accelrys’ Accelerate 2014 user conference in Washington, D.C.
Dassault Systèmes’ BIOVIA is now the largest and deepest portfolio for
the biological, chemical and material modeling, simulation and
production domains. BIOVIA’s list of 2,000+ customers includes numerous
Fortune 500 companies, such as Sanofi, Pfizer, GSK, AstraZeneca, Du
Pont, Shell, BASF, P&G, Unilever and L’Oréal.
BIOVIA will provide enterprise-wide scientific, biological, chemical and
material experiences, with next-generation applications, services, and
content access and delivery leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE
business platform. From material design to molecular simulation to
chemical manufacturing, it is Dassault Systèmes’ vision that BIOVIA will
act as a disruptive catalyst to deliver virtual scientific universes
capable of harmonizing products, nature and life.
“Today is an important day for Dassault Systèmes and one which I,
personally, have been looking forward to for several years. Dassault
Systèmes’ previous research programs in life sciences and
BioIntelligence were precursors to today’s new brand and capabilities,”
said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “The
integration of Accelrys’ powerful applications with our 3DEXPERIENCE
platform will create a new collaborative environment for advanced
biological, chemical and materials experience development. With the
power of BIOVIA, we will model the entire biosphere.”
The integration of the company’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform with Accelrys’
strong suite of applications opens up a wide opportunity to support and
develop systemic collaboration, project management, data and content
reuse, traceability, and other processes, applications and integrations
that are absolutely critical to scientific industries, including
pharmaceutical companies that are facing significant innovation and drug
“Accelrys’ strategy is to provide customers with solutions and tools
that will enable them to optimize the scientific innovation lifecycle
from discovery to commercialization,” said Dick Slansky, Senior Analyst
PLM & Industry at ARC Advisory Group. “The acquisition of Accelrys by
Dassault Systèmes will make the Accelrys scientific innovation platform
available to enrich Dassault Systèmes’ molecular chemistry capabilities
in the life sciences, CPG and manufacturing industry sectors.”
“Our ambition is to provide industry and science the apps necessary to
model the biosphere. BIOVIA brings an enterprise-wide, systemic
collaborative approach to enable innovation for pharmaceutical, CPG and
other process-based industries,” said Max Carnecchia, CEO, BIOVIA,
Dassault Systèmes. “The sophisticated enterprise system of modeling,
simulation, and laboratory and quality management enables innovation for
almost every industry.”
Aside from key innovators and leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotech
industries, leading manufacturing companies, including Boeing, Toyota,
Samsung and others, are using BIOVIA solutions to explore and bring to
market new materials, such as smart coatings, lighter, stronger
composites, and ecosustainable material innovations.
Such companies are fast approaching the point of using material as a
variable, not a constraint. To do so, the ability to manage product
information at the molecular level in a scalable manner is essential
throughout the value chain. In addition, today’s aggressive
industrialization of research, development and manufacturing processes
is driving the adoption of an integrated business platform capable of
handling diverse information types in collaborative and compliant
“PLM software users focused on commercialization and new product
introduction will be exposed to R&D tools that expand product innovation
and multichannel opportunities,” wrote Michael Shanler, Research
Director at Gartner. For further information, refer to Gartner Research
Report G00262297, “Dassault Adds Scientific and Lab Informatics Power

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
