It is never a good thing to see a company you know go under. Compudigm, who developed visulaization software primarily for the gaming industry, went into receivership on March 28. Their last accounts filed with the New Zealand companies office (they were based in Wellington New Zealand and Las Vegas Nevada) show a loss of 2.5m NZ (approximately 2m US) in 2005, and a similar loss in 2004. They had recently sold the rights to the gaming software to Bally Technologies. It looks like Bally is going to roll the Compudigm software into their own business intelligence solution so we will have to wait and see what happens to current Compudigm customers, which include some WhereScape RED customers.
