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.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
CommVault has announced that top industry technology visionaries have joined its leadership team. The addition of leaders from companies such as Oracle, SAP, Microsoft, Cisco, PwC and EMC signals the continuation of CommVault Next, the company's business transformation for sales, go-to-market strategies, pricing and packaging and technology innovation. The company also announced that it had realigned its structure to create business units to more directly match how customers evaluate, deploy, operate, and purchase technology.
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
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 make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
