Autodesk, Inc. will acquire Innovyze, Inc. for $1 billion, with the goal of accelerating Autodesk’s digital twin strategy.
The goal is for Innovyze’s modeling, simulation, and predictive analyses solutions to enable more cost-effective and sustainably designed water distribution networks, water collection systems, water and wastewater treatment plants, and flood protection systems, according to the Autodesk press release.
