Platinum Technology is focusing on developing its "visual computing" offerings with the acquisition of Cosmo Software this month. The company said the former Silicon Graphics division will become a fully integrated part of Platinum to bolster its three-dimensional graphics technology.
Platinum intends to use the products acquired from Cosmo, as well as its own Web tools and technology garnered from its purchase of Intervista Software this summer, to build a comprehensive authoring environment and Web browser plug-in. Platinum also plans a developers kit for adding 3-D to existing applications.
