Qlik, a provider of data analytics, and Attunity, a provider of data integration and big data management software solutions, recently signed a definitive agreement under which Qlik will acquire Attunity. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter.
Under the terms of the agreement, Qlik will acquire all outstanding ordinary shares of Attunity for a total value of approximately $560 million.
Building on Qlik’s recent acquisition of Podium Data and the introduction of Qlik Data Catalyst, Attunity provides cross-platform data streaming capabilities to support a shift to cloud and real-time analytics.
This acquisition further differentiates Qlik by providing an expanded breadth of enterprise data management capabilities and adds an experienced team of data professionals. Consistent with Qlik’s vision for 3rd generation business intelligence, a strong data management strategy creates the foundation for an enterprise analytics strategy that drives insights and transforms organizations.
“Attunity’s strength in real-time data delivery across complex cloud environments will uniquely position Qlik to help customers lead with data and align their enterprise analytics strategy,” said Mike Capone, Qlik CEO. “Attunity has demonstrated strong growth in a large market and together we’re better positioned to serve our enterprise customers along with our partner ecosystem to solve the most challenging data problems.”
In a world increasingly reliant on predictive analytics and artificial intelligence, seamlessly moving data in real-time across multiple cloud environments and data lakes has become a business-critical issue. With Attunity, Qlik will provide customers with an expanded enterprise data management solution to transform their raw data into a governed, analytics-aware information resource.
According to Qlik, the acquisition will add Attunity’s partner network to Qlik’s extensive partner ecosystem, further expanding Qlik’s go-to-market reach and strengthening its data lake management and cloud infrastructure partnerships, including Microsoft, Amazon AWS, Cloudera, and Snowflake.
