IBM to Acquire Star Analytics

IBM agreed to acquire Star Analytics, a privately held software developer based in Redwood City, California for an undisclosed sum.

Star Analytics offers two products: Star Command Center (SCC) to automate and control processes across heterogeneous computing applications and environments, and Star Integration Server (SIS) for sharing Hyperion data.

IBM said Star Analytics software will further advance its own business analytics initiatives, allowing organizations to gain faster access and real-time insight into specialized data sources.

"Star Analytics software allows organizations to move critical analytics source data at will and use it regardless of which application they need to use it with, providing both flexibility and accessibility," said Quinlan Eddy, CEO, Star Analytics.  "As part of IBM, we can now bring our technologies to a broader range of clients to help them uncover new, untapped growth opportunities."
