Mike Baldani and I had a chance to sit down with Jake Simpson, the Mathcad Business Unit’s General Manager and ask a few questions about Mathcad today and tomorrow. Instead of transcribing an interview, we instead brought along a camera to get Jake’s responses. We asked some questions that we’ve heard frequently in the past from customers at live events, our virtual event, and from e-mail. Jake also offers a take on his impression of the existing Mathcad customer base. (We had a few technical hiccups along the way, so you might see a quick-cut here and there. Maybe we’ll save these for the blooper reel!)
