Mergers abound: Macromedia acquires eHelp
While the industry was abuzz last week about the Click2Learn/Docent merger, another merger slipped under my radar, that of Macromedia and eHelp. More precisely, Macromedia is acquiring eHelp. As I've recently purchased eHelp's products (RoboDemo, RoboHelp, etc.), and subscribe to a support license, this was of personal interest to me. Though I am not sure what the impact will be, and I am already a Macromedia customer as well. My guess is that it won't be hugely negative or positive initially, in the long term the ability to develop seamlessly between DreamWeaver and the eHelp suite would be my hope. I'll be staying tuned.
