Another one bites the dust

Congrats to the guys at Seemage who managed to get themselves bought up by their fellow countrymen, Dassault.  I hope you all can keep up the blog, but I wonder how the message will change.  Alex has been pretty vocal in his opposition to IT centric or heavy PLM systems, so here’s to hoping that the name on his paycheck won’t change his opinion.

    The blog will continue…and the message remains the same. DS bought us precisely because Seemage can be the antidote to massive investments that only offer a promise of productivity.

Although acting as an antidote to what the parent company sells could be a tough row to hoe. Keep up the good work.
