Georgia Tech Adopts Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for Educational Innovation

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will adopt the company’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform for 10,000 users (students and educators), including its full range of capabilities in the design authoring, digital manufacturing, collaboration, scientific simulation, and visualization fields.

Today’s announcement comes after nearly 12 years of collaboration, in which Georgia Tech and Dassault Systèmes have partnered to establish an ambitious science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education program unique in academia. Georgia Tech’s Integrated Product Lifecycle Engineering (IPLE) Laboratory and Dassault Systèmes jointly developed a new pedagogical model to educate tomorrow’s engineers through a cloud-based design and manufacturing infrastructure.

Several years ago, key figures at Dassault Systèmes and Georgia Tech realized that the future of science, technology and engineering was collaborative in nature. Funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a new type of curriculum for STEM in high schools was developed in partnership between Dassault Systèmes and Georgia Tech’s IPLE lab. A STEM-oriented summer camp for high school students, in which participants collaborated on engineering and design problems across large distances, was envisioned and the new curriculum deployed. The world’s first collaborative summer camp, held in 2012, brought together high school students at Georgia Tech and the University of Detroit Mercy. A second, highly successful Georgia Tech and Dassault Systèmes-sponsored STEM summer camp was held in 2013 between high school students at Georgia Tech, University of Detroit Mercy and the University of New Haven, Connecticut.

“Our relationship with Dassault Systèmes has been exceptionally durable and produced substantial outcomes. We now pave the road for further, broader achievements, especially in student learning educational innovation,” said Prof. Daniel Schrage, IPLE Director, Georgia Tech, one of the key figures in developing the STEM summer camps and the new educational model used there.

As part of the same far reaching vision and leadership in education that created the groundbreaking STEM summer camps, Georgia Tech has recognized that the need for advanced systems engineers is fast approaching a peak, as more industries compete with smarter products involving more complex systems. At the same time, tens of thousands of engineering professionals are about to retire. To address this potential crisis point and bring advanced systems engineering education to a new level, Georgia Tech’s Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL), a world leading center of expertise for complex cyber-physical systems, has begun leveraging Georgia Tech’s long experience with Dassault Systèmes. ASDL, focusing on bringing the concept of an engineering “digital thread” to new learning and working practices, will include in its curriculum new graphic-based analysis and decision making in the engineering of complex systems.

“Industry faces a dramatic need for talent in systems engineering. Our programs are strongly driven by industry cases and we trust that our collaboration will bring new advances in the way complex systems are analyzed and designed,” said Dimitri Mavris, Boeing Professor of Advanced Aerospace Systems Analysis and ASDL Director, Georgia Tech.

“ASDL is one of the top labs in the USA on this topic and they will use Dassault Systèmes’ unique systems engineering capabilities to bring integrated geometric, logical, functional and requirement modeling to tomorrow’s engineers. We and our partners at ASDL and IPLE have heard the need from industry,” said Philippe Forestier, Executive Vice President, Global Affairs, Dassault Systèmes. “Our relationship with Georgia Institute of Technology is a shining example of the way we approach academia by helping transform the learning experience. Together we are bringing more industry realism into curricula and addressing the entire STEM pipeline to provide industry the employable and competitive workforce it needs.”

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...
As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder.
