The presence and future of Windows as an engineering platform

Leading executives in both small and large product-design/manufacturing companies know that garnering the collective expertise found within their extended organizations and partner supply chain companies provides a competitive edge. By focusing the team’s effort to plan, design, create, and deliver the product, they add value.

Providing them the proper tools that empower and unite their team fosters efficiency. Microsoft’s Windows platform meets these challenges by concentrating on the key business drivers of price/performance, unifying diverse application processes, and laying the foundation for “trustworthy” computing.
