Rockwell Automation Acquires Kalypso

Yesterday’s announcement of the acquisition of Kalypso by Rockwell Automation marks the official end of Kalypso’s self-proclaimed position as an objective and unbiased consultancy. While Kalypso always had official partnerships with a few large PLM software companies, including Oracle and PTC, and hence never was truly objective and unbiased, the firm now becomes part of an organization that less than two years ago made a $1 billion strategic investment in PTC. It is difficult to imagine that Rockwell Automation/Kalypso, having a huge strategic interest in PTC, would provide objective and unbiased advice to clients in a PLM selection.
