Calligo Acquires Decisive Data to Expand its Data Science Abilities

Calligo, an end-to-end managed data services provider, is acquiring Decisive Data, a provider of data analytics, data science, and visualization solutions. The acquisition of Decisive Data immediately propels and broadens Calligo’s data science capabilities, accelerating its global delivery of managed data insights services.

The integration of US-based Decisive Data’s capabilities in data science and data analytics into Calligo’s existing data insights team, alongside its global privacy and security-centric managed data services, aims to create the most capable, accessible, and compliant data insights service for modern businesses.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Calligo becomes the natural choice for organizations of all sizes seeking innovative and strategic understanding of their data, with the reassurance of advanced data security and full adherence to data privacy laws and any industry governance requirements – and the only business to provide this as a consumable, proven, fully-managed service.

Decisive Data was established in 2008 in Redmond, Washington, and now helps some of the largest global brands in technology, retail, telecoms, healthcare and other verticals to use deep data insights to make critical decisions and realize better outcomes in efficiency, growth and profitability.

Backed by Investcorp Technology Partners, this is Calligo’s tenth acquisition since it launched in 2012. Just last year, it acquired four MSPs in Europe— Network Integrity Services (UK), Cinnte Technologies (Ireland), DC Networks (Ireland) and Itomic Voice & Data (Ireland)—to bolster the skills and capabilities available to its customers throughout Europe and North America.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Decisive Data team members, customers and partners to Calligo, and am extremely excited about the capabilities being added to the Calligo portfolio,” said Julian Box, founder and CEO of Calligo. “Businesses today are under tremendous pressure to maximize their capabilities and efficiencies as budgets tighten and markets become tougher. Data and its intelligent exploitation is the well-known solution, but only if done so responsibly, safely and compliantly. With today’s addition of Decisive Data’s talented team members and its technology to Calligo, we will accelerate businesses’ ability to cost-effectively ramp up their data insight efforts – all while ensuring that their data remains secure, private and observes all applicable data regulations.”
