Microsoft is strengthening its position in data analysis and has just bought the Californian start-up Metanautix. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed and the company’s website was shut down, simply pointing to two press releases.
Founded in 2012, this company has developed a technology that structures data from different formats and different sources so that they can work together in a centralized system. “Companies continue to generate huge volumes of information and aspire to be more data-driven in their strategies and operations. But many struggle to bring their various data sources and silos together, and analyze and use only a fraction of all the information available, ”Microsoft says.
Since its inception, Metanautix has raised $ 7 million. The Redmond firm specifies that it will announce in the coming months how the start-up’s solutions will be integrated into its platforms, such as SQL Server or Cortana Analytics Suite.
