Actian und Pervasive Software fusionieren, um bei Big Data Unruhe zu stiften

Actian Corp. („Actian“), ein Innovator im Management großer Datenmengen der nächsten Generation und Entwickler der innovativen, Rekorde brechenden analytischen Datenbank Vectorwise und Pervasive Software Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), ein globaler Marktführer in der cloud-gestützten und Vor-Ort-Dateninnovation, haben heute angekündigt, dass die beiden Unternehmen einen definitiven Fusionsvertrag abgeschlossen haben, in dessen Rahmen Actian alle ausgegebenen Aktien von Pervasive für 9,20 US-Dollar pro Aktie erwerben wird.

Im Abschluss wird Pervasive mit 161,9 Millionen US-Dollar bewertet und die Fähigkeit von Actian beschleunigt, seine Vision umzusetzen und Unternehmen die Fähigkeit zu bieten, in Echtzeit Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, wenn sich ihre Geschäftsumgebung ändert.

„Big Data ist eine Gelegenheit und eine Herausforderung für Unternehmen in jeder Branche mit potenziell wertvollen und entscheidenden Geschäftskenntnissen, die in unzugänglichen und unleserlichen Systemen weggesperrt sind. Damit werden Datenmanagement und diese Erkenntnisse zur entscheidenden Frage für Unternehmen, die Wege suchen, die substanziellen inkrementellen Geschäftswerte in ihren Big Data zu erschließen“, sagte Steve Shine, CEO und Präsident der Actian Corporation. „Diese Transaktion vereint die bewährte Fähigkeit beider Unternehmen, die Industriegiganten in Innovation und Leistung zu übertreffen, sodass es uns möglich wird, jedem Unternehmen Big Data zur Verfügung zu stellen.“

„Es findet in der Branche eine rege Diskussion zur Big-Data-Herausforderung statt. Diese Debatte läuft letztendlich auf die Frage hinaus, wie Unternehmen aus Daten geschäftliche Werte auf eine Weise gewinnen, die leistungsfähig, aber einfach ist“, führte Shine weiter aus. „Wir möchten Kunden die Mittel an die Hand geben, um die Daten zu erhalten, diese Goldstücke der Erkenntnis zu finden und sofort auf dieser Grundlage zu handeln. Würden sich einem Internet-Händler (E-Tailer) Vorteile bieten, wenn er die sozialen Präferenzen der Teilnehmer in seinem Online-Shop kennt oder die Echtzeit-Meldungen einer Preisvergleich-Website für Artikel, die auf Lager sind? Die Fusion von Actian und Pervasive erlaubt es uns, diesen Vorteil und zahllose andere datengetriebene Vorteile auf eine Weise auf den Markt zu bringen, die es uns ermöglicht, mit dem Potenzial von Big Data überwältigende Geschäftsergebnisse zu erzielen.“

Actian und Pervasive bieten komplexe Datenmanagementlösungen für Zehntausende von unternehmenskritischen Bereitstellungen in aller Welt. Diese Fusion verleiht allen Kunden Zugriff auf ein größeres Produktportfolio und hebt unsere gemeinsamen Partnern in die Position, neue Lösungen in angrenzenden Märkten zu bieten. Das vereinte Unternehmen treibt eine Vision voran, in der alle Unternehmen unterstützt werden, aus ihren Daten einen größeren Wert für den Wettbewerb zu schöpfen.

In den vergangenen Jahren haben beide Unternehmen unabhängig voneinander ihre Fähigkeit zur Innovation und zur Bereitstellung von hochgradig differenzierten Lösungen im Datenmanagement-Markt demonstriert. Vectorwise von Actian kann auf mehrere Leistungsrekorde verweisen und entwickelt sich schnell zur beliebtesten Analyseplattform für digitale Unternehmen in aller Welt. In Kombination mit der Big-Data- und Analysesoftware von Pervasive wird es Unternehmen damit ermöglicht, den Vorteil von Hadoop-Ära-Clustern zu nutzen, um schnell Einblicke in große Datensätze zu gewinnen. Die Produkte Data Rush und Data Cloud von Pervasive sind in der Branche ebenfalls großen Anklang gefunden.

„Gemeinsam verfügt diese kombinierte Gruppe über die Technologie und die globale Präsenz, um die Fähigkeit zum Extrahieren und Analysieren großer Datenmengen bereitzustellen und Maßnahmen im Hinblick auf diese zu ergreifen – und das in Echtzeit“, schloss Shine. „Jedes Unternehmen kann jetzt auf der Grundlage realer Erkenntnisse im Bereich Big Data tätig werden.“

Der exklusive Finanzberater von Actian war Evercore Partners, als Rechtsberater fungierte Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. Die Finanzierung für diese Transaktion erfolgt durch TPG Lending Company.
