Oracle buys to boost big data analytics offerings

Oracle Corp. said Tuesday it will acquire privately held, a data analysis company, for an undisclosed amount. Oracle said the acquisition will allow it to provide customers with a single data science platform, leveraging Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and its sofware-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service offerings. "Every organization is now exploring data science and machine learning as a key way to proactively develop competitive advantage, but the lack of comprehensive tooling and integrated machine learning capabilities can cause these projects to fall short," said Amit Zavery, EVP of Oracle Cloud Platform.
