  • Parametric takes on automation

    Parametrics Technology recently moved to broaden its business-process automation architecture with the release of Windchill 2.0, an integrated set of Web-enabled product development tools. With this release, PTC hopes to take a page from the play book of enterprise resource planning vendors by using its size and an integrated suite of tools to take on a billion-dollar segment of the software market currently populated by a host of small companies and homegrown applications, said James Heppelmann, Parametric's senior vice president for Windchill.
