Penske Racing details the improvements in performance, gains in efficiencies, and reduction in complexity they are seeing from implementing a PTC Windchill on Microsoft SQL Server solution.
“At Penske Racing, we understand the importance of speed and performance. We chose PTC’s Windchill and Microsoft’s SQL Server because we wanted the best product development solution on the market and a database that offered enterprise-ready functionality and low total cost of ownership. It took us less than a week to upgrade from our previous version of Windchill running on an alternate database to Windchill 9.1 on SQL 2005. We’re already seeing performance gains, and we’re really happy with our decision.”- Thomas German, Penske Racing Technical Director
