Dassault Systèmes yesterday announced the release of its next-generation social innovation application named 3DSwYm. The social enterprise platform, according to the French 3D software provider, is designed to enable organisations to connect and collaborate with people “inside and outside”, including employees, partners, suppliers, consumers and stakeholders.
The company said 3DSwYm’s development was spurred by the idea of “creating a new type of collaborative environment” to transform the way organisations worked together. “It goes beyond today’s mostly static corporate intranets and information systems,” the company claimed in a media release.
“3DSwYm empowers everyone, regardless of domain, to innovate and add value, share their experience and put forward ideas, fostering a strong sense of belonging and engaging everyone in the enterprise’s challenges and vision,” said Sophie Planté, chief executive 3DSwYm, Dassault Systèmes, in a statement. “The result is a unified 360-degree view of activities and interactions shared across the organisation.”
The 3DSwYm reportedly incorporates semantic search engine and integrates with legacy information systems and business processes. Other capabilities include sharing of 3D models, social learning and serious gaming (employee training) applications, said Dassault Systèmes.
Organisations can essentially develop their own secure on-the-cloud community and virtual innovation spaces, said Dassault Systèmes.
They can also personalise the 3DSwYm environment with the Netvibes’ widget catalog, the company said.
Dassault Systèmes acquired Netvibes, the online dashboard services company, in February this year.
