There was an article that mentioned that Mercedes had upgraded all their systems to use the latest software (I thought it was CAD/CAM can't recall) written by Scarbs. Ferrari hadn't. I wonder if that is a major factor in the incredible machine that is the W10. Not to mention Toto being probably the best boss in the world to work for because rarely do you hear of people leaving the Mercedes teams to go work elsewhere.
Yes, Mercedes uses the latest version of CATIA, whereas Ferrari still uses the older one which seems to have major weaknesses compared.
As for the new chassis Mercedes is bringing, there is nothing much to say other than that the rate of development this team shows is simply incredible. They already were the, by far, fastest car from get go, but still put updates on the car more regularly than their biggest rivals (don't really know about RBR, but Ferrari at least).
You would except Ferrari being the team to bring a brand new chassis as it's them going the wrong direction with their concept. But no, on the contrary, it's the already most dominant team. And this can't even purely be explained by finances as Ferrari surely can't complain about having little money resources. The differences obviously lie in talent, work procedure, organisation and management.
