Industry Visionaries Meet to Discuss Growing Technology Trends at the ANSYS Dimensions Innovation Executive Conference

Presenters from leading customer companies include Ferrari, Airbus, Dyson, PTC, Avicenna Alliance for Predictive Medicine

PITTSBURGH, October 26, 2016 – Thought leaders from Ferrari, Dyson, PTC, Microsoft, Airbus, Avicenna Alliance for Predictive Medicine and many more, will converge in Paris, November 15-16 for the Dimensions Innovative Executive Conference hosted by ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS). The two-day event will feature dynamic speakers from industry-leading companies highlighting the importance of simulation in the design process as well as how simulation is affecting the latest global technology trends.

The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 is driving innovation and change across an array of industries from aerospace, automotive and healthcare. Engineering simulation technology is helping companies achieve sustainability goals, lower operational costs and drive growth through new markets. At the Dimensions Innovation Executive Conference, attendees will hear directly from market leaders how simulation is playing a key role in their company’s IoT strategy and how simulation technology is being used to make game changing engineering innovations a reality in cost-effective and realistic timeframes. During the breakout sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to take a deeper dive into a number of topics around IoT, system simulation and embedded software.

"There are profound shifts underway in industry being driven by new technology initiatives like IoT, Industry 4.0 and sustainable, alternative energies. These global trends will have a profound impact on future business models as well as on the engineering tools and methods required to be competitive and successful," said Don Tolle, director of CIMdata’s simulation driven systems development practice. "The initial ANSYS Dimensions Innovation Executive Conference is a very significant and timely event as it provides a unique international forum where industry executives can meet to network and learn best practices for simulation-driven product development from industry thought leaders and practitioners."

"Engineering simulation is no longer limited to engineering heavy industries such as automotive and aerospace. It is also playing a key role in the advancement of predictive and personal medicine,"said Adriano Henney, secretary general for Avicenna Alliance for Predictive Medicine. "The ANSYS Dimensions Innovation Executive Conference provides the ideal venue for executives from different industry sectors to share their experiences and learn from each other how simulation can be leveraged to support the key business initiatives that will define the future of their industry."

"Companies are looking to create lasting success in today’s rapidly innovating and competitive environment. In today’s global marketplace, leading companies are utilizing engineering simulation to eliminate time from the engineering and the design phase, while still ensuring uncompromising product quality," said Eric Bantegnie, vice president of systems business unit at ANSYS. "Growing technology trends such as the Industrial Internet of Things and the proliferation of digital twins is reshaping how companies approach product design. The Dimensions Innovation Executive Conference is an exciting opportunity to bring together some of the biggest industry names redefining product development today."
