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.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
