Actian et Pervasive Software fusionnent pour créer une force perturbatrice dans le domaine des « big data »

Actian Corp. (« Actian »), innovateur dans la gestion nouvelle génération des « big data » et créateur de la base de données d'analyse novatrice et inégalée Vectorwise, et Pervasive Software Inc. (NASDAQ : PVSW), société mondiale de premier plan dans le domaine de l'innovation de données dans le nuage et sur site, ont annoncé aujourd'hui que les deux sociétés ont signé un accord définitif de fusion en vertu duquel Actian fera l'acquisition de toutes les actions émises de Pervasive, à 9,20 USD par action.

Cet accord évalue la valeur de Pervasive à 161,9 millions USD et permet à Actian de donner plus rapidement une vision de la possibilité offerte aux organisations d'agir en temps réel à mesure que leur environnement commercial évolue.

« Les « big data » représentent une chance et un défi pour toutes les organisations dans tous les secteurs. Certaines connaissances critiques sur des possibilités commerciales potentielles peuvent se trouver enfermées dans des systèmes indécryptables et inaccessibles. La gestion de données et les connaissances qu'on peut en tirer constituent la grande question des entreprises qui cherchent à déverrouiller cette valeur commerciale incrémentielle de taille enfermée dans les « big data », a déclaré Steve Shine, PDG d'Actian Corporation. « Cette transaction combine les capacités éprouvées des deux entreprises à innover davantage et à dépasser les géants du secteur, car nous pouvons désormais mettre à disposition de toutes les organisations les trésors recelés par les « big data ». »

« Le secteur discute beaucoup des difficultés soulevées par le défi des « big data ». Le débat se résume à trouver comment les entreprises peuvent extraire de la valeur commerciale des données, d'une manière puissante mais simple », a affirmé M. Shine. « Nous voulons donner aux clients les outils dont ils ont besoin pour obtenir ces données, trouver ces noyaux de connaissance et agir immédiatement en conséquence. Un commerçant en ligne gagnerait-il à connaître les préférences sociales des visiteurs de sa boutique ou des alertes en temps réel provenant d'un site de comparaison de prix sur les articles stockés ? La fusion d'Actian et de Pervasive nous permet de commercialiser ce genre de données avantageuses et bien d'autres encore, ce qui permet aux entreprises de créer des résultats commerciaux intéressants dérivés de ces « big data » prometteuses. »

Actian et Pervasive offrent des solutions complexes de gestion de données pour des dizaines de milliers de déploiements stratégiques dans le monde entier. Cette fusion permet aux clients d'accéder à un portefeuille élargi de produits, et à nos partenaires de pouvoir offrir de nouvelles solutions sur les marchés adjacents. La société jointe donnera une vision pour aider toutes les organisations à tirer une plus grande valeur concurrentielle de leurs données.

Au cours des années passées, ces sociétés ont chacune démontré leur capacité d'innovation et ont créé des solutions hautement différenciées sur le marché de la gestion de données. La base de données Vectorwise d'Actian détient actuellement plusieurs records de performances et est en passe de rapidement devenir la plateforme analytique de choix des sociétés numériques du monde entier. Associée au logiciel de « big data » et d'analyses de Pervasive, elle permettra aux organisations de tirer parti des clusters de l'ère Hadoop et d'obtenir des aperçus rapides sur de grands ensembles de données. Les produits de données précipitées et de données dans le nuage de Pervasive ont également été salués par le secteur.

« Ensemble, le groupe combiné dispose de la technologie et de la présence mondiale nécessaires pour extraire, analyser et agir sur les « big data » en temps réel », a conclu M. Shine. « Chaque organisation peut désormais agir d'après des aperçus réels pour intervenir sur les « big data ». »

Actian avait pour conseiller financier exclusif Evercore Partners et Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP comme conseiller juridique. Le financement de cette transaction sera assuré par la société de crédits TPG.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
APIs came about to help companies create and manage their digital ecosystem, enabling them not only to reach more customers through more devices, but also create a large supporting ecosystem of developers and partners. While Facebook, Twitter and Netflix were the early adopters of APIs, large enterprises have been quick to embrace the concept of APIs and have been leveraging APIs as a connective tissue that powers all interactions between their customers, partners and employees. As enterprises embrace APIs, some very specific Enterprise API Adoption patterns and best practices have started emerging. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will talk about the most common enterprise API patterns and will discuss how enterprises can successfully launch an API program.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
Today, developers and business units are leading the charge to cloud computing. The primary driver: faster access to computing resources by using the cloud's automated infrastructure provisioning. However, fast access to infrastructure exposes the next friction point: creating, delivering, and operating applications much faster. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Bernard Golden, VP of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss why solving the next friction point is critical for true cloud computing success and how developers and business units can leverage service catalogs, frameworks, and DevOps to achieve the true goal of IT: delivering increased business value through applications.
MapDB is an Apache-licensed open source database specifically designed for Java developers. The library uses the standard Java Collections API, making it totally natural for Java developers to use and adopt, while scaling database size from GBs to TBs. MapDB is very fast and supports an agile approach to data, allowing developers to construct flexible schemas to exactly match application needs and tune performance, durability and caching for specific requirements.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
