Guavus Acquires Neuralitic Systems

Acquisition Allows Company to Deliver a Comprehensive Suite of Big Data Applications for Marketing, Customer Care and Network Engineering to Communication Service Providers

SAN MATEO, CA and MONTREAL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Guavus, a leading provider of big data analytics solutions, today announced it has acquired Neuralitic Systems, the mobile data monetization and marketing analytics experts serving the telecommunications industry. Montreal-based Neuralitic provides deep-dive analysis into mobile data, enabling Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to generate new revenue streams by improving decision-making aimed at subscriber acquisition, conversion and retention. The combination of Neuralitic's applications for mobile marketing with Guavus network and customer care applications enables global CSPs to attain timely and actionable insights that optimize business operations, support data monetization, generate new revenue streams and enhance the customer experience.

"CSPs need analytics and marketing solutions that allow them to define subscriber profiles based on behaviors and react to those behaviors in real-time or near real-time," said Maribel Lopez, Founder Lopez Research LLC.

Guavus's decisioning applications provide insights across network, device, content and subscriber analytics, enabling carriers to realize cost savings by optimizing network capacity, increasing revenues through the introduction of new services and delivering a better subscriber experience. Neuralitic's application for mobile marketing adds key insights into subscribers' mobile data consumption for marketing decision makers. Used together, these decisioning applications democratize timely decision-making across engineering, customer care, and marketing business functions.

"In today's fast paced environment where new smartphones come and go in a quarter, businesses cannot afford to wait to integrate disparate tools or invest in expensive BI projects to get access to valuable insights," said Anukool Lakhina, Founder and CEO, Guavus. "Businesses need to be in the know so they can make more intelligent and timely decisions across line of business functions. With the addition of Neuralitic, Guavus now has a holistic data fabric that provides integrated decision-making across network, marketing, and customer care, and enables the creation of data-driven business processes to deliver and optimize the right service at the right time."

"Guavus's and Neuralitic's solutions are unique in the big data market because they are proven at global, tier-1 carriers and are delivering real business value today," said Louis Brun, Founder of Neuralitic Systems and now serving as Guavus's Senior Vice President, responsible for marketing and product strategy. "By joining forces, we provide CSPs with a single, integrated solution that is scalable to carrier-class environments, offers an immediate return on investment, and makes timely decision-making a reality. Carriers no longer need to invest in large systems integration projects, cross their fingers and wait 12 months to see if their investment pays off."

The financial transaction closed on December 5, 2012, and the acquisition is effective immediately. As part of the transaction, Guavus global headquarters will remain in San Mateo, California and the company will have international offices in Montreal, Singapore and London, with research and development offices in Gurgaon and Ahmedabad, India.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
Companies today struggle to manage the types and volume of data their customers and employees generate and use every day. With billions of requests daily, operational consistency can be elusive.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
