One response to “News Analysis: Aptean Six Months After The CDC Software And Consona Merger”

    HI,
    With a Lot of lingering unknowns and lack of direction from the collection of companies acquired by APtean; I am not sure how they can grow their foot print unless they cultivate and nurture the concept of partnerships. They have been mostly trying to do it all in the past and they (most of these companies they acquired) failed to grow.
    What is new ? Will a collection of closed unfriendly and single threaded companies succeed because they now somehow are owned together by one owner ?
