Dassault Systmes (DS) and IBM have expanded their long-standing partnership, including financing solutions from IBM Global Financing, a joint competency center, and work on a product lifecycle management (PLM) cloud computing proof of concept.

The two companies, which represent the PLM industry's longest running alliance, continue to invest in developing, deploying and supporting client PLM environments. Further results from the alliance signed last month include a DS PLM V6 software cloud computing technical proof of concept presented at the IBM IMPACT 2010 conference. The concept illustrates how clients can take advantage of DS software via a range of delivery options, from on-premise solutions, to a cloud powered by IBM software, hardware and services that can help reduce IT complexity and minimize operational costs.

This latest expansion includes a dedicated team of IBM and DS personnel focused on enabling, marketing, and delivering PLM solutions necessary for clients to transform their business. To this end, the companies established an industry-first joint PLM competency center focused on optimizing DS PLM V6 solutions for performance, reliability, and scalability on an IBM infrastructure.

The IBM Global Financing portfolio is designed to help fuel innovation for clients using the combination of DS and IBM technology, providing payment options that meet their budget, return on investment and project payback criteria. From simple loans to custom leases and terms as long as 60 months, IBM can finance the total PLM solutionincluding hardware, software and servicesby providing affordable monthly rates and flexible payment structures.

"Our global alliance is focused directly on our customers' success. It covers flexible financing options, PLM-on-the-cloud, combined infrastructure, software and services solutions, as well as a one-of-a-kind competency center for industrialization of V6 solutions on IBM infrastructure," said Philippe Forestier, executive VP, global affairs, DS. "These are all a means to a single end: our customers' innovation and business transformation strategies. Strategies such as these are significant and our customers deserve the best solutions and services in the industry to ensure a successful implementation and genuine return on investment."

"The alliance focuses on delivering end-to-end solutions by industry, starting from transformation services to globally restructure product development," said Chuck Masur, VP, DS Global Alliance, IBM. "It is about a long-shared and well-understood vision of how customers can advance their businesses with PLM, cutting cycle times and costs, while achieving breakthrough product innovation with Dassault Systmes and IBM combined solutions."
