Attunity expands its strategic position in Big Data markets through BIReady acquisition
Burlington, MA-based Attunity Ltd. announced on December 2 that it has expanded its Big Data solutions portfolio as well as its strategic positioning in Big Data markets via the acquisition of BIReady’s data warehouse automation technology. The innovative BIReady solution automatically designs, generates and populates enterprise data warehouses and data marts, adding data modeling and structuring capabilities inside the data warehouse. This technology, which is unique in the market, is designed to provide fast, flexible delivery of information for Big Data Analytics and Business Intelligence (BI) projects – adding an important new capability to Attunity’s Big Data technology suite.
BIReady technology will enable Attunity to fulfill a key need for enterprises that require an automated, end-to-end data warehousing solution to support mission-critical data initiatives. By supporting the entire lifecycle of data warehouses and data marts through agile automation, the BIReady technology is designed to eliminate the traditionally complex, manual tasks of preparing data for BI and Big Data analytics, the firm said.
“BIReady technology will enable Attunity to bring enterprises to the next level in data warehousing – to deliver near real-time BI and analytics significantly faster than it would take otherwise,” explained Bill Inmon, owner of Inmon Consulting Services, and Forest Rim Technology (a BIReady partner), and also universally recognized as the ‘father of the data warehouse’. “BIReady technology accomplishes the many goals of ETL by automating much of the data warehousing design process and the generation of SQL code – something the classic ETL model has never mastered. Unifying these strengths with existing Attunity technology will provide a modern platform that adds value for enterprises by making the process of delivering data and building a data warehouse seamless, efficient and affordable.”
“The acquisition of BIReady technology marks another milestone in the evolution of our growth strategy with a new solution that, in addition to moving the data, will also provide customers with the ability to create and manage data warehouse logics,” stated Shimon Alon, Chairman and CEO of Attunity. “The addition of data warehouse automation technology to our information availability portfolio helps to complete and strengthen our offering while answering a critical need for prospects. The technology will also enable us to cross-sell and up-sell to our existing customers currently considering or leveraging data warehousing on-premises or in the cloud.”
Mr. Alon concluded, “We expect that this transaction will generate additional opportunities with OEM and go-to-market partners and resellers, enhance our competitive position in our market, and enable us to expand our presence in these rapidly-growing markets.”
