Some of you have been wondering what’s going on with Mathcad, and we want you to know that PTC is investing significant time and resources into Mathcad’s future. PTC’s focus on Mathcad is evident by its recent formation of a business unit, allowing this team to concentrate on innovations that will keep Mathcad at the forefront of the industry. The objectives of the business unit are to:
- define and implement a focused business and product strategy to ensure long-term viability of Mathcad;
- dedicate development resources to ensure a timely cadence of releases, upgrades and improved integration with other software applications;
- introduce Mathcad to new markets, getting beyond PTC’s core industries and further enhancing the product to meet new requirements; and
- provide a regular cadence of communications to our customers about product information, tips and techniques, special Mathcad events.
We’re already hard at work, and launching some major activity focused on our customers and moving the product forward into the next decade. We’re planning our first User event through a virtual conference, scheduled for March 16, 2010, where you’ll learn about PTC’s Mathcad strategy and roadmap. Register here
We’re putting the final touches on a new release, Mathcad 15.0, which will be available to the market in mid-2010. You’ll hear more on this at a later date.
After listening to customer feedback, we’ve embarked on developing a completely redesigned Mathcad. This innovative product leverages the latest best practices for optimizing the user experience, so users spend less time documenting and more time engineering. This new release, Mathcad PrimΣ 1.0 Preview, will be test driven by a focus group through much of 2010. Once it provides the capabilities and experience our users expect, it will be launched to the general marketplace.
PTC views Mathcad as an important component of its overall product offering and remains committed to delivering the best engineering calculation software to our customers.
