IBM announced that it has completed acquisition of Vivisimo; a provider of federated discovery and navigation software that helps organization access and analyze big data. The combination of IBM and Vivisimo software accelerates IBM’s big data initiatives to help clients analyze the volume, variety, and velocity of big data for strategic advantage.
“Game-changing insights are locked inside big data and clients want an easier way to unlock their full potential,” said IBM Software Group manager of Information Management, Arvind Krishna. “The acquisition of Vivisimo will help clients uncover new data and combine it with existing information assets for analysis that leads to smarter business decisions. No other vendor provides this depth and breadth of information management and analytics for big data.”
Vivisimo will be integrating with IBM’s big data platform, a platform that analyzes any data in motion or at rest. IBM’s clients are able to develop new classes of applications with advanced big data analytics; including native form, optimize workloads, and apply security and governance.
