Netvibes is Dassault Systèmes' fourth acquisition in two years. In June 2010 it paid around €135 million (US$160 million) for enterprise search engine EXALEAD, and in 2011 bought production validation software vendor Intercim for $36.5 million, before snapping up Enginuity PLM, a maker of software for the pharmaceuticals manufacturing industry.
"With the birth of the real-time Web, companies need to adapt to everything and everyone inside and outside their borders. To accomplish this, we need a way to connect and combine different products and uses, internal and external data sources, personal and professional apps, and human curation and algorithms—across all devices and departments, in real-time and in context,” said Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “Netvibes' Dashboard Intelligence technology makes this possible.”
Dassault Systèmes will enhance its search based application, EXALEAD, and social commmunity based solution, 3DSWYM, in order to get the competency in the PLM market.

"What is the major trend in enterprise search and content processing for 2012?"
G.G: "Enterprise search is different from web search because lots of information is in unstructured sources. The current trend is to include both internal and external information in searches, so there is a growing body of linked data available. People want to know everything about what is going on both inside and outside the enterprise.[…]"
"What do you consider to be the most significant challenge facing the web industry? What web search obstacles have yet to be cleared?"
F.B: "I consider the rise of the mobile Internet to be one of the today’s most significant challenges, yet it’s a topic about which we hear too little. As users increasingly access services via devices powered by the likes of iOS and Android, to name just the two most prominent platforms, Web technologies begin to lose their importance, and the Web itself to lose its universal character.[...]"
