3DX Platform Upgrade: Access to Roles and Apps

With the 3DX Platform Upgrade, the Compass now works as a single button, navigating to three sections:

  • ME to access your Roles and Apps
  • COMPANY to discover and request the Roles available on your platform
  • WORLD to navigate to the 3DS Solutions Portfolio and learn more about its values

The ME and WORLD sections also each include two tabs identifying Roles and Apps:

  • As a System of Operations tab reveals the solutions, Roles and Apps serving the industry and associated disciplines
  • As a Business Model tab reveals new categories of experiences and services serving any person in its business environment

With the As a System of Operations tabusers find their Roles and Apps similarly to previous versions:

  • My Roles section reveals the Roles granted to the user. Click on a Role to see the related Apps and to discover their values. New Role icons reveal the related Brand:
