Novetta Solutions LLC, a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners, announced Oct. 3 the acquisition of Digital Results Group Inc. (DRG) and Sentinel Applied Analytics LLC.
“We are delighted to welcome DRG and Sentinel into the Novetta family as their specialized software and solutions add niche capabilities to our analytics offerings that have already been gaining market momentum and increased adoption. The acquisitions also enable expansion into new customer sets,” Novetta CEO Peter B. LaMontagne said in a statement. “And more importantly, from an employee and cultural perspective, DRG and Sentinel will be a great fit inside Novetta.”
Boston, Mass.-based DRG designs and develops software and technology solutions for government and commercial clients to support the collection, processing and exploitation of multi-intelligence data.
“DRG’s web-enabled data fusion software provides a disruptive and scalable solution to cross domain multi-int command and control challenges; this approach is particularly helpful as enterprises struggle with increasing numbers and types of data feeds with volumes that are expanding exponentially,” Novetta Chief Data Scientist Kris Heim said. “We look forward to incorporating DRG capabilities into our offerings.”
The data analytics firm Sentinel uses applied statistical techniques to identify patterns, trends and relationships.
“Sentinel has proven solutions in compliance and risk analytics, leveraging predictive modelling, computational network analysis, and advanced text analytics,” Sentinel President Rob Wavra said. “Joining Novetta will allow us to expand our unique, high-performance capabilities in the advanced data analytics market.
