Persistent Systems Announces Strategic Solutions With IBM InfoSphere BigInsights

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - Persistent Systems (BOMBAY: PERSISTENT) (NSE: PERSISTENT), a leader in outsourced software product development services, announced today strategic solutions around Email Analytics and Social Media Analytics that run on top of IBM's InfoSphere BigInsights. Persistent Systems is an IBM Business Partner, providing professional services and solutions leveraging IBM's Big Data platform. IBM's Big Data platform allows enterprises of all sizes to cost effectively manage and analyze the massive volume, variety and velocity of data that consumers and businesses create every day.

Enterprises have amassed large amounts of digital data which contain a wealth of information that can provide insights into their business and the market. However, this information often resides in untapped data sources in an unstructured, semi-structured or structured form. Persistent Systems is helping companies access this data and extract valuable insights which companies can use to improve their business processes and customer offerings. Persistent Systems has invested in algorithms, data-connectors and solutions that aim to accelerate the time to deliver business results on IBM's BigInsights platform.

"Persistent Systems brings strong capabilities on the BigInsights platform and proven expertise in analytics solutions using both structured and unstructured data. Their experience working with IBM BigInsights over the past two years makes them well positioned to serve our clients," said Bruce Weed, Program Director of Big Data Business Development, IBM Information Management. "We look forward to their future innovations on the BigInsights platform and the business insights they are able to help bring to our customers."

"Persistent Systems has heavily invested in Big Data and Hadoop over the past two years, laying the groundwork for unleashing this powerful platform," said Hari Haran, President of Persistent Systems, Inc. "Persistent System's solutions for IBM BigInsights help customers unlock the value of their most important asset, 'their data.' We firmly believe that IBM BigInsights will be a platform of choice for many Fortune 1,000 enterprises."

Persistent System's Big Data practice is focused on building tools and accelerators that substantially reduce the effort required for building Big Data applications.
