PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) announced the availability of the integration between Windchill 8.0 and Arbortext 5.2, delivering an end-to-end technical publications solution from a single vendor. The solution provides an integral connection between PTC’s Windchill content and process management software and PTC’s Arbortext XML authoring and dynamic publishing software. Built to help solve the challenge of creating and publishing complex, accurate technical documents concurrently with a manufactured product, this release serves both the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) markets. The PTC PDS is designed to deliver the full complement of capabilities on an integral architecture that supports the global nature of product development, including the technical publications process. Specifically for technical publications, the PTC PDS enables companies to create content using an XML-based component approach, collaborate within and across organizational boundaries, control and manage content configurations and related processes, and communicate relevant information to a wide variety of audiences. The integration is delivered with Windchill 8.0 M020 and Arbortext 5.2 M010, which will be available early May 2006. Windchill and Arbortext customers with current maintenance are entitled to receive these new releases free of charge.
