Tiburon, Calif. - Jon Peddie Research (JPR), an industry research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced the acquisition of Vektorrum Group, a knowledgeable and experienced team covering the CAD industry.
"The CAD industry is both a huge mature market, and a consumer and driver for cutting edge 3D technologies. JPR has always covered the CAD industry in our content creation industry reports and the CAD industry is an important product segment for our clients in the workstation and semiconductor industries," says JPR president Jon Peddie. "We believe JPR's focus on the graphics industry including graphics semiconductors, workstations, software tools, industry trends, and hands-on testing is very relevant to the Vektorrum readership. JPR has had a close relationship with its readers for over 25 years, and we are looking forward to welcoming Vektorrum's readers to the JPR community."
Upon completion of the deal, Vektorrum will become part of Jon Peddie Research's software division, and Vektorrum president Randall Newton will join Jon Peddie Research.
