We are pleased to announce that we have signed with Dassault Systèmes a strategic agreement  under which we become a full Systems Integrator  partner in the Dassault Systèmes Services Provider Partner programme.

This stronger alliance follows an initial service agreement concluded in 2012 and now makes CIMPA an approved Systems Integrator partner, enabling it to play a part in major consulting and integration projects associated with the Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform. After joining Sopra Steria Group, a major player in IT services, at the end of 2015, CIMPA now has greater integration capabilities that strengthen its unparalleled expertise in PLM services, acquired over the last 20 years, notably, at its former parent company, Airbus.

On this new basis, CIMPA can now work even more closely with Dassault Systèmes and support it with its major digital transformation programmes, in particular in the aerospace, defence, energy and transport sectors.

First joint success: Dassault Systèmes, Sopra Steria and its subsidiary, CIMPA, recently joined forces to win the tender with DCNS to manage the lifecycle of its products.

Pierre Lopez, CEO of CIMPA, explains: "This new level of partnership will allow us to differentiate ourselves and provide even more value to our customers in terms of consulting and integration, with new technological and sectoral dimensions thanks to the support of Sopra Steria".

Laurent Giovachini, Deputy CEO of Sopra Steria, elaborates: "We are delighted that Dassault Systèmes, Sopra Steria and its subsidiary, CIMPA, can cooperate on a broader scope. Sopra Steria will lend its full commercial and operational support to this strategic partnership".

Laurent Blanchard, Deputy CEO, Global Field Operations (EMEAR), Worldwide Alliances and Services of Dassault Systèmes, adds: "We welcome this partnership agreement that reflects the strengthening of our relations with CIMPA and, at the same time, opens up new possibilities with the Sopra Steria Group as a whole centred on our 3DEXPERIENCE platform. For Dassault Systèmes, this is a strategic collaboration that will come about with the implementation of joint actions, with DCNS's lifecycle project forming the foundation".
