Actian completes Pervasive Software deal

Hands across the waterActian has signed on the dotted line and completed its purchase of Pervasive Software.

The big data management company has said that having the cloud-based and on-premises data business on board means it will be able to deliver a portfolio of highly scalable, elastic and performant products that drive positive business outcomes in the Age of Data.

Steve Shine, chief executive officer of Actian said that big data could and would impact every industry as organisations struggled to take action on their data due to legacy technology too rigid or expensive to scale.

Robin Bloor, chief analyst and co-founder, The Bloor Group, described the merger as “powerful”. He said the combination of the technologies would provide Actian with a performance capability for BI and Data Analytics which no other company could “currently equal”.
