Our V6 platform is the evolution of our V5 SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture), developed as the cornerstone to deliver fully collaborative PLM services on demand by us and our partners. We believe the creation of our V6 platform will be an important contributor to the extension of our market presence within our eleven targeted industries and to the extension of our user market to consumers and collaborators. Our V6 strategy extends current CAA V5 architecture (Component Application Architecture) with best-in-class Web

Our V5 Platform
Since 1999 we have developed a unique, common platform for our PLM applications. Combining our technological capabilities with our understanding of market needs, we developed an innovative and open software architecture, Version 5, or V5, which was first released in 1999. V5 is the technological platform for the development of new products for the PLM market and makes possible a tight integration of CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA and ENOVIA solutions.
A major component of V5 is its unique object model allowing multi-disciplinary collaboration by enabling simultaneous definition of product, process and resources (PPR). V5 enables knowledge-based product creation, engineering and manufacturing processes management within a dynamic environment (enabling multiple actions to occur simultaneously) to drive optimized product definition, manufacturing preparation, production and service.
V5 technology also provides our PLM products with scalability. Scalability allows enterprises of different sizes, and users with diverse profiles, from occasional use to highly sophisticated engineering, to benefit from a fully integrated PLM solution.
The following five fundamental principles provide the underlying strength of our V5 products:
