Wolfram announced SystemModeler yesterday. You can read the post here.

You can see the costs here.


  • It’s integrated right into the predictive stack
  • It looks a hell of lot prettier than all the other System Modelers out there on the market
  • It’s priced right for students


  • 99% of the potential users won’t use it because they have to take a course
  • It’s priced well outside of the innovator-technologist range
  • It looks complicated

I predict a whole sequence of ‘game changer’ posts are about to overtake us all. It isn’t. But that’ll make for some pretty good title-muppeting.

The product is a great extension for a pretty good stack. It looks cool.

It may be of interest to many systems thinkers out there.
