Actian e Pervasive Software se unem para criar uma força disruptiva em Big Data

Actian Corp. (“Actian”), uma inovadora na próxima geração de gerenciamento de big data e criadora do recorde inovador do banco de dados analítico Vectorwise, e Pervasive Software Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), uma líder global de inovação de dados on-premise e baseados em nuvem, anunciaram hoje que as duas empresas firmaram um acordo definitivo de fusão no qual a Actian adquirirá todas as ações em circulação da Pervasive por US$ 9,20 cada.

O acordo avalia a Pervasive em US$ 161,9 milhões e acelera a capacidade da Actian em executar sua visão de fornecer às organizações a capacidade de agir em tempo real, na medida em que seu ambiente de negócios muda.

"Big Data é uma oportunidade e um desafio para as organizações de todos os setores, com visão de negócios potencialmente críticos e valiosos, trancados em sistemas inacessíveis e indecifrável. Isso faz do gerenciamento de dados e da percepção a grande questão de hoje para empresas que procuram a forma de desbloquear o valor comercial substancialmente incremental em sua big data," disse Steve Shine, CEO e presidente da Actian Corporation. "Essa transação combina a capacidade comprovada de ambas as empresas para inovar e desempenhar acima dos gigantes da indústria, permitindo-nos cumprir a promessa de big data para todas as organizações."

"Há muita discussão na indústria em torno dos desafios de big data. Este debate essencialmente se resume em como as organizações extraem valor comercial a partir de dados de uma forma que é poderosa, mas simples," Shine continuou. "Queremos dar aos clientes as ferramentas para chegar aos dados, encontrar os pontos de percepções e agir sobre eles imediatamente. Será que um e-varejista se beneficiaria em saber as preferências sociais daqueles em sua loja on-line ou de alertas em tempo real a partir de um site de comparação de preços para os itens em estoque? A fusão da Actian e Pervasive nos permite trazer estes e inúmeros outros benefícios de dados para o mercado de uma forma que permite que cada empresa crie resultados de negócios atraentes vindos da promessa de big data."

Actian e Pervasive fornecer soluções complexas de gestão de dados para dezenas de milhares de implementações de missão crítica em todo o mundo. Essa fusão dá a todos os clientes o acesso a um portfólio maior de produtos, e propicia a nossos parceiros conjuntos oportunidades maiores de oferecerem novas soluções em mercados adjacentes. As empresas combinadas caminharão para uma visão que ajuda todas as organizações extraírem maior valor competitivo a partir de seus dados.

Ao longo dos últimos anos, as duas empresas demonstraram de forma independente sua capacidade de inovar para oferecer soluções altamente diferenciadas no mercado de gestão de dados. O Vectorwise da Actian detém atualmente vários recordes de desempenho e está rapidamente se tornando a plataforma analítica de escolha para as empresas digitais ao redor do mundo. Isto combinado com o software analítico e Big Data da Pervasive permitirá que as organizações aproveitem da era de clusters Hadoop para percepções rápidas sobre grandes conjuntos de dados. Os produtos de dados em nuvem e velocidade em dados da Pervasive também têm sido criticamente aclamados pela indústria.

"Juntos, o grupo combinado tem a tecnologia e a presença global para fornecer a capacidade de extrair, analisar e agir sobre big data em tempo real," concluiu Shine. "Toda organização pode agora agir sobre percepções reais para tomar medidas em big data."

O assessor financeiro exclusivo da Actian foi a Evercore Partners e seu conselho jurídico foi a Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. O financiamento para esta transação será fornecido pela TPG Lending Company.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

In her keynote at @ThingsExpo, Manjula Talreja, VP of Cisco Consulting Services, will discuss IoE and the enormous opportunities it provides to public and private firms alike. She will share what businesses must do to thrive in the IoE economy, citing examples from several industry sector...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
