Munich, July 30, 2021 - The Nemetschek Group, one of the world's leading software providers for the AEC/O industry, today announced that its brands Graphisoft and Data Design System will merge to create a strong and customer-focused product portfolio of BIM solutions for integrated multi-disciplinary workflows. Combining the technology and know-how of Graphisoft - the global leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solutions for architecture - and Data Design System (DDS) - the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineering design specialist - will significantly enhance the companies' offerings to users around the world.

By integrating DDS' MEP domain capabilities with Graphisoft's technology platform and global go-to-market position, the merger will leverage each brand's complementary capabilities and strengths, spurring further growth. "The merger is a key realization of the Nemetschek Group's unique opportunity to deliver broad, integrated value propositions to the AEC/O industry. Driven by the Group's strategic focus to leverage synergies amongst the brands, we are convinced that the merger will accelerate growth for the Nemetschek Group as a whole and strengthen our global market position," says Viktor Várkonyi, Chief Division Officer, Planning & Design Division and Member of the Executive Board of the Nemetschek Group. "It is exciting to see how both teams are embracing the opportunities and the technology gains to deliver best-in-class solutions globally."

Since its founding in 1982, Budapest-based Graphisoft's mission has been to empower architects and building professionals with the technology and know-how necessary to create great architecture. Graphisoft's industry leading technology platform Archicad - including their Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solution - is used by architects and designers around the world and has been instrumental in the design of some of the world's most iconic buildings. Graphisoft joined the Nemetschek Group in 2007.

"Merging DDS, with its best-in-class capabilities for MEP professionals, and Graphisoft, with its leading BIM and design collaboration technology platforms, will bring greater value to engineers and designers worldwide through integrated multi-disciplinary workflows," says Huw Roberts, CEO, Graphisoft.

Founded in Norway in 1984, Data Design System (DDS) develops innovative software solutions under the brand of their Open BIM product family DDS-CAD, which provides the perfect tools for MEP experts who plan and design building services projects. DDS joined the Nemetschek family in 2013 and is a market leader in Central Europe.

"I'm convinced that strengthening our MEP capabilities with Graphisoft's technology platform and global reach will bring added value to our customers on a global scale," adds Bjørn K. Stangeland, CEO, Data Design System.

The merger of Graphisoft and DDS in the Planning & Design Division is another strategic step in harmonizing the Nemetschek portfolio and increasing value for its customers.
