I am amazed that their revenue was so low (13 million euros) having been in the AutoCAD clone business for so long. It makes you wonder if the clone business model is sustainable and whether it was just as well that they were bought.... just in time... to jump on Hexagon's, which seems to be based on merging 3d models, primavera and estimation software, targeting fellow swede big contractor's Skanska's needs https://youtu.be/WlE7cJvEn1c?t=164

Seems like there will be a three way race between Hexagon-Intergraph/BricsCAD, Trimble-Sketchup/Tekla and Topcon/Bentley in the megaproject petrochem, building and infrastructure sectors. I wonder if Aveva/PDMS, Intergraph's big rival in the petrochem sector will now feel left out being unattached to either big sensor / metrology or wider civils/bldg ecosystem?
