Actian Corporation voltooit acquisitie van Versant

Actian Corp. ("Actian"), een leider in next generation big data management en makers van de innovatieve recordbrekende analytische databank Vectorwise, heeft vandaag aangekondigd dat het de overname heeft afgerond van Versant Corporation (Nasdaq: VSNT), een vooraanstaand bedrijf in gespecialiseerde data management. De combinatie van de expertise van Versant op het gebied van oplossingen voor enterprise big data versterkt de portefeuille van big data analyse van Actian en breidt zijn capaciteiten uit op deze opkomende markt.

Volgens Gartner zal big data zorgen voor $ 232 miljard aan IT-uitgaven tot het einde van 2016. Als realtime aanbieder van informatiemanagement heeft Verizon meer dan 150.000 installaties, en is het al meer dan 15 jaar een uiterst betrouwbare partner voor Global 2000 bedrijven zoals Ericsson, Verizon, Siemens en de Financial Times, evenals voor de regering van de VS. Versant's leidende object-georiënteerde database gekoppeld aan de bestaande portefeuille van Actian betekent een verdere versterking van het vermogen van Actian om bedrijven te helpen waarde te genereren uit hun big data.

"We verheugen ons erop om Versant welkom te heten in de Actian-familie", aldus Steve Shine, chief executive officer van Actian. "De voltooiing van deze transactie betekent dat klanten nu de voordelen hebben van een dynamisch platform voor data management dat hen in staat stelt om big data om te zetten in waarde voor hun bedrijf. Onze recordbrekende analysedatabase Vectorwise in combinatie met de bestaande expertise van Versant zal ons in staat stellen om met nog meer succes tegemoet te komen aan eisen op het gebied van data-analyse."

In het persbericht van Versant, dat is uitgegeven na het ondertekenen van de definitieve overeenkomst, stelde Bernhard Woebker, president en chief executive officer van Versant, dat "De combinatie van Actian en Versant talrijke synergieën biedt voor data management. We zijn verheugd om ons bij Actian aan te sluiten voor de ontwikkeling van technologie om tegemoet te komen aan de vragen van de steeds groeiende en complexe markt voor business intelligence en analyse."

Met meer dan 10.000 klanten wereldwijd is Actian een leider in het helpen van bedrijven om big data te analyseren in bedrijfstakken zoals retail, e-commerce, enterprise, gezondheidszorg, fabricage, financiële dienstverlening en social media. Het wordt steeds belangrijker voor bedrijven om over de juiste hulpmiddelen te beschikken om waarde af te leiden uit enorme hoeveelheden data en Actian helpt dit probleem op te lossen.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
