OVHcloud is betting big on international business, which accounts for 51% of the group’s annual turnover. Asia and the United States are among the regions with the most dynamic growth.
The company has also achieved double-digit growth in sales with global and local partners, which “the number now exceeds 1,100, with more than 500 international”.

Dassault Systèmes makes science a differentiator
Software giant Dassault Systèmes has released higher quarterly results, confirming its 2022 targets.

3DExperience software posted sales up 15% over the quarter, while cloud software increased by 21%, the group said in a press release.
The Life Science industry sector is also key. Medidata, a medical software publisher, is experiencing “very strong growth in all of its products and in all of its market segments,” notes Dassault Systèmes.
“At the heart of all our activities, science is a truly differentiating element. Thus our virtual experience twin, based on the 3DExperience platform on the cloud, is not just a simple representation of reality: it integrates the laws and real-world scientific principles, as well as all of our technologies,” said Bernard Charlès, Group CEO. “We help our customers to create virtual universes to exploit the life cycle of their products and their production systems” he summarizes.
