Actian y Pervasive Software se Fusionan para Crear una Fuerza Disruptiva en Grandes Datos

Actian Corp. ("Actian"), empresa innovadora en gestión de grandes datos de próxima generación y creadora de la innovadora y exitosa base de datos analítica Vectorwise, y Pervasive Software Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), líder mundial en innovación de datos en la nube y en las instalaciones, anunciaron hoy que las dos compañías han celebrado un contrato de fusión definitiva conforme al cual Actian adquirirá todas las acciones en circulación de Pervasive por un valor de 9,20 USD por acción.

El acuerdo valúa a Pervasive en 161,9 millones USD y acelera la capacidad de Actian de hacer realidad su visión de proveer a las organizaciones la capacidad de actuar en tiempo real al modificarse su entorno comercial.

"Los grandes datos constituyen una oportunidad y un desafío para las organizaciones de cada industria, con conocimiento crítico comercial potencialmente valioso encerrado en sistemas inaccesibles e indescifrables. Esto convierte a la gestión y al conocimiento de datos en la gran pregunta de hoy para empresas que consideran cómo liberar el valor comercial gradualmente creciente sustancial en sus grandes datos", señaló Steve Shine, Director Ejecutivo y Presidente de Actian Corporation. "Esta transacción combina la capacidad comprobada de ambas compañía de superar en innovación y desempeño a los gigantes de la industria, lo cual nos permite cumplir con la promesa de grandes datos a cada organización".

"Se discute mucho en la industria sobre el desafío de los grandes datos. Este debate esencialmente se reduce a cómo las organizaciones obtienen valor comercial de los datos de una manera impactante y sin embargo simple", agregó Shine. "Queremos dar a los clientes las herramientas para llegar a los datos, hallar esas perlas de conocimiento y actuar de acuerdo con ellas inmediatamente. ¿Se beneficiaría un vendedor en línea del hecho de conocer las preferencias sociales de quienes están en su tienda en línea o de las alertas en tiempo real provenientes de un sitio de comparación de precios para artículos en existencia? La fusión de Actian y Pervasive nos permite llevar este y otros beneficios innumerables motivados por los datos al mercado de un modo que permita que cada empresa cree resultados comerciales convincentes derivados de la promesa de grandes datos".

Actian y Pervasive proporcionan soluciones de gestión de datos complejos a decenas de miles de despliegues de misión crítica en todo el mundo. Esta fusión le proporciona a todos los clientes acceso a una cartera más grande de productos, y brinda a nuestros socios conjuntos una mayor oportunidad de ofrecer soluciones nuevas en los mercados adyacentes. Las compañías fusionadas fomentarán juntas una visión para ayudar a todas las organizaciones a obtener mayor valor competitivo de sus datos.

En los últimos años, ambas compañías han demostrado independientemente su capacidad de innovar para brindar soluciones muy diferenciadas en el mercado de gestión de datos. Vectorwise de Actian actualmente posee múltiples récords de desempeño y se está convirtiendo rápidamente en la plataforma analítica preferida de las compañías digitales en todo el mundo. Esto unido al software analítico y de grandes datos le permitirá a las organizaciones aprovechar los clústers Hadoop para el conocimiento rápido en conjuntos de grandes datos. Los productos Data Rush (apuro de datos) y Data Cloud (nube de datos) han sido también críticamente aclamados por la industria.

"Juntos, el grupo combinado tiene la tecnología y la presencia mundial para proporcionar la capacidad de extraer, analizar y actuar respecto de grandes datos en tiempo real", concluyó Shine. "Cada organización puede actuar ahora sobre la base de conocimientos reales para tomar medidas sobre grandes datos".

El asesor financiero exclusivo de Actian era Evercore Partners y su asesor legal Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. La financiación para esta transacción será provista por TPG Lending Company.

"ReadyTalk is an audio and web video conferencing provider. We've really come to embrace WebRTC as the platform for our future of technology," explained Dan Cunningham, CTO of ReadyTalk, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at WebRTC Summit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
The Internet of Things can drive efficiency for airlines and airports.

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together.
