VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France -- November 21, 2012

Dassault Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (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 the latest
release of its 3DEXPERIENCE platform. V6 Release 2013x includes the general
availability of Dassault Systèmes’ Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM)
capabilities, improved access to Big Data, new composite materials design
capabilities, secured exchange workspaces for suppliers, and support for new
STEP standards. This release also covers a strong set of industry solutions
enhancements for consumer packaged goods, energy, aerospace and defense,
transportation and mobility, marine and offshore, and high tech.

More specifically:

  *Availability to all customers of the Simulation Lifecycle Management
    application. By managing simulation data, deploying best practices, and
    sharing simulation results, customers improve collaborative decision
    making and maximize their ROI in simulation. SLM is the result of
    extensive work in partnership with many customers in aerospace and
    defense, transportation and mobility and consumer packaged goods;
  *New enhancements on platform openness:

       *Better access to Big Data thanks to a new connector for Hadoop HDFS,
         improved performance for WebSphere and SharePoint connectors, as well
         as new navigation and visualization options for data search,
         exploration and analysis;
       *Support for the STEP AP242 standard, an automotive and aerospace
         standard which allows import and export of ISO standard BREP and
         tessellated data to enable engineering, exchange, and visualization
         for the adoption of a 3D master process; and
       *Secure access to Supplier Exchange Workspaces.

  *New Enhancements on CATIA V6:

       *Easy  switching between online and offline mode for CATIA V6. At the
         click of a button when an Internet connection is not available,
         designers can protect IP and maintain data integrity. Before going
         into offline mode, the designer reserves parts for modification, and
         at the push of a button, these are downloaded to his laptop. Once
         back online, modified designs can be re-synchronized and active
         collaboration with the rest of the design team can resume; and
       *New composites materials fiber simulation capabilities to optimize
         ply shapes and ensure accurate composites manufacturing. This
         technology, based on the recently acquired Simulayt, is routinely
         used to analyze complex surfaces, particularly in aerospace,
         motorsports and the energy sector.

“This new release of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform confirms our commitment to
explore and realize state of the art applications while also improving the
openness of our platform,” said Dominique Florack, Senior Executive Vice
President, Products, R&D, Dassault Systèmes. “Each new release is the tangible
proof that we care for customer requirements, but especially that we are
inspired by their business goals.”

New enhancements for industry solutions:

  *Systems enhancements tailored for the energy, aerospace & defense,
    transportation & mobility  and  industrial equipment industries, including
    five new dedicated model libraries to simulate and analyze the behavior of
    engine, electrical, hydro, liquid cooling and thermal power systems.
    V6R2013x also features requirements effectivity enhancements to support
    decision making on design configuration alternatives, enabling, for
    example, faster market reaction in high tech;
  *Copy and artwork management for the consumer packaged goods and life
    sciences industries, including capabilities for product managers and other
    marketing professionals to define, review, and approve copy and artwork
    content leveraging the same data used during product development;
  *Business data access and productivity enhancements to 3DVIA Store, the
    premier solution for simulating retailing and brand merchandising
    settings. For example, consumer packaged goods or consumer goods products
    in a gondola can be highlighted based on the value of key business
    indicators. Accessing business statistics information on the 3D shelf is a
    major step forward in merchandising decision making;
  *A new marine & offshore manufacturing planning application provides the
    foundation for all 3DEXPERIENCE shipbuilding manufacturing solutions and
    delivers a dedicated environment to perform manufacturing process
    planning, and large manufacturing assembly definition; and
  *Virtual 3D manikin posture prediction for the transportation & mobility 
    industry via new Ergonomics for Vehicle Design within the DELMIA
