Spotlight: Actian acquires Pervasive Software


The big data-driven acquisition of Pervasive Software by Actian closed late last week, resulting in what Robin Bloor, chief analyst and co-founder of The Bloor Group, calls a powerful merger in the area of "highly parallelized and scale-up, scale-out data integration and databases." He said it will provide Actian with a performance capability for business intelligence and data analytics that is unmatched in the marketplace today. Actian is a provider of big data management solutions and Pervasive Software provides cloud-based and on-premises data innovation.
