Two large deals in the water simulation software world

In the past two week two large deals were made in the water simulation softwareֲ  market. The first one is the joining of MWH Soft and Wallingford Software:

mwhsoft_wallingfordsoftwareMWH Soft, based in Broomfield, Colorado, U.S. and Wallingford Software, based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, U.K. are both leading providers of hydraulic modeling software to water and wastewater utilities around the world.ֲ  The combined firm will be able to provide a full suite of software products geared toward hydraulics and hydrology.

ג€œThe joining of these companies allows us to add another dimension to our product offering,ג€ says Dr. Paul Boulos, President of MWH Soft.ֲ  ג€œBy combining two companies with a reputation for excellence in the modeling industry, we will be able to address the full needs of our clients globally.ֲ  We are excited to work together with Wallingford Software.ג€

ג€œThis is a tremendous opportunity to expand our service offerings for our clients, as well as expand into new geographies,ג€ says Andy Brown, Wallingford Software European Operations Director. ג€œWe are looking forward to this new frontier.ג€

The second is the announcement by AutoDesk of the acquisition of certain assets from BOSS International:

Autodesk, Inc., a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, has announced the acquisition of certain assets from BOSS International, Inc. to further expand its water resources analysis capabilities for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. StormNET for stormwater management analysis, RiverCAD for floodplain analysis, and WaterNET for water distribution analysis will be more closely integrated with Autodesk’s model-based design solutions, including AutoCAD Civil 3D, to help engineers streamline workflows, reduce errors and boost productivity.

The deal by AutoDesk sounds exiting. In the past few months I was straggling to export a very large water network from AutoCAD to EPANet. I know that most of the water simulation packages today do have an interface to AutoCAD but when it is integrated by AutoDesk it should work even better.
