Compaq has formally unrolled its Pentium Pro range of workstations with a claim that its machines will set the standard for Cad and Cam software development in the future. At the same time the company said it would seek to win market share from Sun and HP and target the financial markets with the products.
Hugh Jenkins, enterprise product manager at Compaq UK, said that the company was setting up a certification programme for software developers. He expected that major Cad companies including Autodesk would write special Windows NT drivers to optimise their products specifically for the machines graphics subsystems.
"All of the vendors at present have generic ports of their software for PCs," he said. "Our intention is to make sure software developers write and certify products for the Compaq workstations. We do expect that the Compaq workstation will be the development platform for these applications."
Compaq will also rebuild the channel it had until 1991, when it dropped its previous series of Cad workstations, Jenkins said. "We?ll just blow the dust off our channel strategies in this area," he said.
