Компания PTC реформирует линейку своих программных продуктов

Компания PTC объявила о выходе новой связки программных пакетов для 3D CAD моделированияPro/ENGINEER. С 1 апреля 2007 года выходят 5 вариантов Pro/ENGINEER, самый полный из которых - Pro/ENGINEER Enterprise XE – будет включать в себя компоненты MathCAD (инженерные вычисления) и Arbortext Editor (редактирование XML документов).

PTC announced new bundling packages that are due to take effect April 1, 2007. The base package (which used to be Pro/ENGINEER Foundation Advantage) will now be known as Pro/ENGINEER Foundation XE (for Extended Edition) and be available for ,995.

A new range of mid-tier packages has been added called Pro/ENGINEER Advanced SE (Standard Edition) and Pro/ENGINEER Advanced XE. The high end package previously known as Flex 3C (for create, collaborate and control) will now be called Pro/ENGINEER Enterprise SE. Finally, PTC will introduce an even higher end package, called Pro/ENGINEER Enterprise XE, that include products from recent acquisitions, namely Mathcad and Arbortext.

Apparently, the "Wildfire" terminology is to be phased out, a victim of its own success. Wildfire was originally only a code name for a release of Pro/ENGINEER but caught on too well.

Says Gearoid "Gar" Smyth: "The release of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 1.0 in 2003 introduced some confusion in the marketplace around the Pro/ENGINEER brand. The 'Wildfire' term was introduced to signify the new generation of Pro/ENGINEER. PTC was so successful at promoting the new generation of Pro/ENGINEER that some incorrectly believed it [Wildfire] to be a new product separate from Pro/ENGINEER. They also incorrectly believed Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire to be our small-medium business (SMB) offering and Pro/ENGINEER to be PTC’s high-end offering. To clarify, Pro/ENGINEER is the PTC product family brand name. Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc., form the release numbering scheme. Pro/ENGINEER is the PTC product family brand name."

The new packages were introduced at PTC's Media and Analyst Days.
