LinuxPR: Matra Datavision Wins Major New Service Contract for Development of Samtech Open CASCADE

May 26, 2000, 20:13 (0 Talkback[s])

"Matra Datavision provides open source modeling components and specific application development expertise over a five-year period"

"Matra Datavision confirms the continued success of the Open CASCADE initiative with the announcement of a new multi-million French franc contract to provide development services around its open source modeling components. Matra Datavision will provide 1500 man/days of development support to Samtech, a leading European editor of analysis and numerical simulation software, for the joint development of a preprocessor for Samcef Design, the company's powerful finite element solution."

"Development expertise and software longevity were key to Samtech's decision: According to Eric Carnoy, general manager of Samtech, Matra Datavision was chosen for the preprocessor application development project because of its thorough experience in developing technical applications for industry: "We have known and worked with Matra Datavision for over five years on Euclid Analyst. The company was a natural choice for the added value of its development expertise, which will enable us to create a seamless integrated solution dedicated to the analyst that will complete our Samcef/Design offer and finalize our previous work with Matra Datavision. On our side, we will concentrate our efforts on the development of new features that will support the full range of Samcef linear and nonlinear analysis solutions within this new product." Another reason for the choice was Open CASCADE's guaranteed longevity through its availability and evolution as open source software, thanks to the contributions of the community formed around it."

"For Hugues Rougier, chairman and CEO of Matra Datavision "Matra Datavision commits to taking care of development and technical support, leaving Samtech personnel free to concentrate on what they do best, enriching the application with their specific analysis expertise. This means more efficiency and greater productivity for Samtech."
