    Kurt Chen is right it’s BIG news for Dassault Systèmes. It’s the biggest acquisition in the company’s history and this will bring 700 people from IBM PLM to the company.

    Also IBM people and identified professionals started a discussion around this topic on the Dassault Systèmes PLM MarketPlace group on LinkedIn

    Absolutely! I could not agree more. This news is huge and I feel it’s been quite some time coming.

    Thanks so much for the information on PLM MarketPlace as well!
