Wow. If you saw our news earlier today, we had two major announcements:
- The first one is about our acquisition of Gemcom Software, the world leader in geological modeling and simulation for the mining industry.
- The second is the launch of our latest Brand dubbed GEOVIA. GEOVIA will be dedicated to the virtualization and simulation of nature. In other words, while you know CATIA as the Brand for “Virtual Product”, GEOVIA will be the Brand for “Virtual Planet”. Gemcom Software is, in fact, the first step towards this new endeavor.
We will have plenty of opportunities to further discuss about GEOVIA on this blog, but first things first, we’d like to wish a warm welcome to the 360 employees of Gemcom Software! 🙂
If you’re curious about Gemcom, you will want to listen to CEO Rick Moignard, talking about the company, its products, and how he sees fit with Dassault Systèmes’ 3D Experience platform. As I had the chance to talk with Rick recently, I really can tell how he is thrilled by the expanding capabilities in workforce safety and sustainability brought by the combination of our respective pieces of software.
