CDC Software and Consona Corporation merged on 7 Aug 2012 to form APTEAN [4]

History[edit]

CDC Software (spun off in 2006 from CDC Corporation, formerly CHINA.COM founded in 1997[5]) and Consona Corporation merged to form APTEAN.[6] The company's products include applications for enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM), manufacturing operations management, customer relationship management (CRM), and enterprise performance management. APTEAN also offers professional services, including software implementation, customer education, and training services. The company was founded in October 2002 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.[1]

CDC Software products are used by more than 10,000 customers in the manufacturing, financial services, health care, home building, real estate, wholesale and retail distribution industries. The company also offers a range of services that includes implementation, project consulting, technical support and IT consulting.[1]

Acquisitions[edit]

CDC Software has acquired more than a dozen enterprise software and business services firms and formed four internal business units, each of which focuses on a different aspect of automating, managing and streamlining operations: CDC Front Office, CDC Manufacturing, CDC Supply Chain, and CDC Solutions for Microsoft. Probably the biggest name in ERP that was purchased was Ross Systems. Ross had up to 700 employees in the early 1990s selling primarily to medium to small sized process manufacturers.[7][8]
