"CSC has 50 years of experience delivering successful BI and data warehousing solutions using leading tools such as IBM Cognos, SAP Business Objects, SAS, Informatica, QlikView and Oracle," said Gerhard Fercho, CSC President EMEA Central Region. "We view Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine as a strategic complement to these technologies for our customers."
"Unified information access platforms provide a single point of access for global organizations facing an explosion of content and data. The key to effective access to disparate data sources is to fully integrate this information in order to uncover relationships across multiple silos," according to Sue Feldman, Research VP at IDC. "UIA offers an agile adaptable infrastructure to monitor and mine information, understand human language and be more flexible and up-to-date than a traditional database because it supports real-time or near real-time updating and analytics. Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine is one of a new breed of platforms designed to do exactly this."
"CSC's offerings in the business intelligence space are growing exponentially, and Attivio brings unification, agility, and scale to new levels with this partnership," explains Mark Ward, EVP at Attivio. "Monitoring customer opinions in social media conversations, tracking what competitors are doing, and enabling real-time response to ever-changing indicators are just a few of the many capabilities we offer companies requiring deeper analysis into the vast amount of data they generate. Combining the power of AIE with the cutting-edge technologies and business strategy CSC offers helps clients achieve the sustained competitive advantage they demand."
