(www.gartner.com), a major research and industry analyst firm, has ranked Dassault Systemes as the top financial performer in the growing sector of Product Lifecycle Management software and services. The ranking, completed in March, also includes EDS PLM Solutions, PTC, and MatrixOne as leaders in PLM. Autodesk and MSC.Software also ranked high as challengers.

Dassault President Bernard Charles says PLM is the next revolution for creating manufactured products using 3D modeling.
