Autodesk continues its acquisition spree, with the latest acquisition of PI-VR  (visualization solutions in automotive and manufacturing).

This is after Autodesk as already acquired similar companies in the past like Opticore, and another German visualization company Numenus.de.

It's also an interesting acquisition as this software will once again compete with Autodesk Showcase.

This leaves Automotive companies now have one less competing visualization solution provider (good and bad). It's now Autodesk, Autodesk, Autodesk, or RTT, Bunkspeed, or a few others.

I suspect, RTT and Bunkspeed, will continue to innovate and set the pace for Autodesk to follow.

More analysis to come.
