Intergraph Corporation is an American software development and services company.

It provides enterprise engineering and geospatially powered software to businesses, governments, and organizations around the world. Intergraph operates through three divisions: Process, Power & Marine (PP&M), Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I), and Hexagon Geospatial. The company’s headquarters is in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. In 2008, Intergraph was one of the hundred largest software companies in the world.[1] In 2010, Intergraph was acquired by Hexagon AB.

Intergraph software products include the geographic information system (GIS) application GeoMedia, the image processing application IMAGINE, the photogrammetry application ImageStation and the InService outage managements system for electrical utilities.

History[edit]

Intergraph was founded in 1969 as M&S Computing, Inc., by former IBM engineers who had been working with NASA and the U.S. Army in developing systems that would apply digital computing to real-time missile guidance. The company was later renamed to Intergraph Corporation in 1980.

In 2000, Intergraph exited the hardware business and became purely a software company. On July 21, 2000, it sold its Intense3D graphics accelerator division to 3Dlabs, and its workstation and server division to Silicon Graphics.[2]

On November 29, 2006, Intergraph was acquired by an investor group led by Hellman & Friedman LLC, Texas Pacific Group and JMI Equity, making the company privately held. Most recently, on October 28, 2010, Intergraph was acquired by Hexagon AB.[3] The transaction marks the return of Intergraph as part of a publicly traded company. As part of the Hexagon acquisition, Hexagon moved the management of ERDAS, Inc. from under Leica Geosystems to Intergraph, and Z/I Imaging sensors from under Intergraph to Leica Geosystems. [4]
