ScriptLogic Goes to Quest
I'm always a little sad when an independent, third-party company gets swallowed
up by a larger outfit. In this case, ScriptLogic is in the process of being
acquired by Quest for $90 million.
There are two pieces of good news. First, Quest is a fine company -- great
folks, great products, all-around goodness as far as I can see (ScriptLogic
is the exact same kind of animal). The second bit of good news is that Quest
plans to have ScriptLogic operate as a wholly owned subsidiary. To me, that
means ScriptLogic will remain largely ScriptLogic. I hope so.
But these things have a way of changing sometimes. After Quest bought Aelita,
the Aelita identity disappeared (though Quest and Aelita had a lot of product
overlap, and I don't remember Quest promising to keep Aelita intact).
Anyway, congrats to the folks at ScriptLogic and Quest. I can see the two companies'
cultures meshing quite well!
By the way, here's
a Q&A Redmond Developer News did with ScriptLogic's top programmer,
the skinny on the acquisition.
