  • Our third product offering will be the combination of MSFT’s Social Computing with PTC’s Product Development to achieve a Social Product Development environment. Many CIOs and VPs of Engineering are worried about productivity and IP protection given today’s social media options. PTC believes that by offering these Social Media capabilities within the secure environment of SharePoint and a Product Development System, we can make the Product Development organization more productive while securing IP. We have found that both the CIO and VP of Engineering find value exploring Social Product Development together. Everything we build on SharePoint obviously has Social Product Development Capability. Unique products will be commercial after 2011.
