The story of Synon and Obsydian:
As you probably already know, Synon/2E was a british software company that created and distributed through IBM software CASE tools, beginning only for the AS/400 iSeries (Synon/2E) and then also multiplatform: As/400 iSeries, Windows, Web, Unix with Obsydian.
The Synon USA branch was located near San Francisco just north of the Golden Gate bridge.
Synon has since change hands first has been absorbed by Sterling Software which in turn has been absorbed by Computer Associates.
For some unwise marketing strategy (in my opinion) the acquiring companies wnated to change the names of the tools that has been transformed as follows:
Synon Sterling Software Computer Associates
Synon/2E COOL:2E Advantage:2E
Obsydian COOL:Plex Advantage:Plex
