TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 27, 2014) - Big data analytics company AnalytixInsight Inc. (the "Company" or "AnalytixInsight") (TSX VENTURE:ALY) is pleased to announce that it has signed a non binding memorandum of understanding with IRIS business Services Ltd.

  • Create and market a range of unique and proprietary data sets and data driven insights based on company disclosures ranging from earnings releases, conference calls and financial statements and other related regulatory filings.

"This is a great partnership for AnalytixInsight to grow its big data analytics platform in the B2B space. Iris has approximately $12 million (CAD) in revenues today and revenues are poised to increase next year. The XBRL space has seen plenty of activity in recent times and is expected to grow significantly in the next few years on the back of changing regulatory requirements for reporting standards for issuers. This partnership is accretive to AnalytixInsight and will provide a boost to top line revenues as well as a strong, strategic fit to our product and business development in the predictive analytics space. Based on current trends and indications, AnalytixInsight is expected to do about $5-$6 million (CAD) in revenues with our B2B partnerships next year and a partnership in the XBRL business will help us achieve that. We hope to follow this announcement with other strategic partnerships and joint ventures in the growing B2B space for Analytixinsight," said Prakash Hariharan, Chairman of AnalytixInsight.
