Dassault Systèmes’ cloud customers were ‘successfully and seamlessly’ upgraded to R2015x within a few hours and over the whole scope of the 3DExperience platform, according to a release today.
Release R2015x combines new user interfaces, applications, services and cloud infrastructure enhancements, while delivering full social collaboration capabilities.
Billed as ‘the largest cloud portfolio in the market’, businesses already employing the platform on public or private Clouds were automatically updated to release new benefits, with more than 250 new capabilities within the transportation and mobility industry sector alone.
“Every single cloud customer is already taking advantage of the volume of new enhancements we’ve implemented in R2015x, demonstrating the power of the cloud model,” said Dominique Florack, senior executive VP, R&D, Dassault Systèmes. “We are the first to truly take advantage of this model, in its simplicity, for our customers of all types and sizes.”
Dassault Systèmes reaffirmed its commitment to the continuing compatibility and synchronisation between V5 and V6. R2015x is said to offer an ease of interface that lets V5 customers benefit from their existing deployments and take advantage of V6 applications.
In addition, R2015x introduces groupings of applications called ‘roles’ to best match users’ needs, designed to cover a broader set of activities that users need to accomplish in industry-specific domains.
Users of the platform can access and select roles directly from the 3DCompass of the user interface. Examples of roles include: creative designer, project manager, stress analysis engineer or process planner – with 219 roles on premise, 115 roles on public cloud and 115 roles on private cloud.
Among R2015x’s key user interface developments, users can enjoy touch-friendly ease of use and can effortlessly customise the interface and toolbars, of particular advantage for expert tasks.
All applications are touch enabled, and a real or virtual touch pad allows faster and easier access to a customised set of applications.
Simplified editing features, accelerated loading of large sessions and better contextual toolbar availability further contribute to the user experience.
