Data Dynamics Acquired by GrapeCity

I just finished posting the press release to the Data Dynamics website, Data Dynamics has been acquired by GrapeCity.

The name probably isn’t very familiar to those in the US; however, GrapeCity has been our partner for a while now.  They have been responsible for localizing the entire ActiveReports product for consumption in Japan, translating not only the strings in the control but creating documentation, advertisements, and even putting the product on store shelves!  Visual Studio Magazine wrote an article on GrapeCity in Feb. 2006 that discusses some of the unique aspects about the company.

For our current and future users, this acquisition won’t change things much.  The website will be getting an update, but the products will remain the same.

ActiveReports will still be the #1 report writer available for .NET developers, and we’re still going to release ActiveReports 6 sometime in the first half of next year.

My team is still hard at work on Data Dynamics Reports 2.0, though we may change the name to match the new owner.  We’re continually working on improving Data Dynamics Analysis based on the feedback we’ve gotten so far.  And we’ve also got a brand new product in the works that I can’t wait to tell everyone about, but that’s for a future post.

Personally, I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.
