Aggressive Move Charts Out Bold Vision

This insight talks about 3DS/Dassault Systemes acquisition of Quintiq and the implications of the same to the market. It further analyzes the aspects of increase in addressable market sizes for the parent company and the benefits thereof. Also discussed are the cross-synergies between Dassault Systèmes, Apriso, and Quintiq in terms of solution offerings, customer business drivers, and industry challenges.

Overview
On 24 July 2014, Dassault Systèmes let the world know of its intent to acquire Quintiq, an operations planning and optimization company. The acquisition was finalized on 8 September 2014. Based in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, Quintiq has its US headquarters in Philadelphia. Quintiq had revenues of close to $ million for 2013. As a competitor in the operations and optimization space, Quintiq places focus on manufacturing, workforce, and logistics. This announcement comes almost a year after Dassault Systèmes acquired Apriso. These acquisitions are not bolt-on acquisitions, but enable Dassault Systèmes to expand its markets into operations planning (Quintiq) and further expand into manufacturing execution (Apriso). Comparing this bold move with pure-play design solutions organizations like Autodesk, PTC, and Siemens PLM, it is a more comprehensive strategy that is underwritten by a clear and compelling vision to enhance a strategic business value for its customers.

There are many cross-synergies between Dassault Systèmes, Apriso, and Quintiq in terms of solution offerings, customer business drivers, and industry challenges. The capability to deliver solutions from product conception to planning, optimization, and delivery provides a comprehensive technology platform for customers. Very few companies have a semblance of similar solution offerings, and those that do are facing significant integration challenges. Realistically, it will likely take at least to years for Dassault Systèmes to realize the impact of this solution strategy and how it will positively impact the operating margins of the organization.
