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.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
