Ericsson, a leading communications technology and services provider, has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help drive a business transformation and digitalise its innovation, business and operations processes.
The company will adopt Dassault Systèmes’ ‘Business Operation Excellence’ industry solution experience. This is with the aim of accelerating the delivery of Ericsson’s products and services to an increasingly networked and connected society.
Ericsson has estimated that 26 billion connected devices will form a ‘Networked Society’, which will see mobile, broadband and cloud technologies making information and communication quicker and cheaper.
Dassault Systèmes ‘Business Operation Excellence’ solution will Ericsson take steps towards this ‘Networked Society’, providing a unified, digital environment. This will enable transparency, traceability, reporting and flexibility across its hardware, software, services and solutions.
Ericsson will benefit from global, real-time collaboration across disciplines. This will stretch across the company itself, while also extending externally to customers, partners and suppliers.
“The new platform will ensure that we can automate and speed up the development flow and at the same time make relevant product information available to user groups such as sales, integrators and support,” said Johan Torstensson, head of group IT and enterprise IT at Ericsson. “It is also crucial to enable faster time to market and to ensure that our customers are able to purchase Ericsson products through digital channels. The benefit of this project compared with previous attempts to introduce a new IT platform is that it is business driven.”
“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform goes beyond PLM to connect Ericsson’s global product marketing, engineering, manufacturing, sales and services teams from the very early stages of ideation, to invent, design, engineer, deliver and operate complex and rich experiences made of hardware, software, content and services,” said Olivier Ribet, vice president of high-tech industry at Dassault Systèmes. “Today’s high-tech experiences leverage sensors, networks, mobile- and cloud-based ambient intelligent software, and continuously updated software, content and services. We are proud to accompany Ericsson in this journey and to support the surge in internet of things data traffic and machine-to-machine data communications as well as to enable new solutions and experiences for smart cities, smart mobility, digital manufacturing and other areas.”
