CSC moves to extend data analytics capabilities with start-up acquisition
Friday, August 09, 2013
Infochimps founded in 2009, will be merged into CSC’s bid data and analytics unit, and will provide real-time correlation and analytic services.
Infochimps will also continue to offer standalone service at the same time, with the backing of CSC resources and support, including the infrastructure of the multi-national outsourcer, marketing teams, sales teams and software developers.
The acquisition of Infochimps follows the purchase of 42Six Solutions, another provider of big data and analytics services in October of last year, as CSC seeks to compete against competitors who have sought to capitalise on the efficiency and costs savings available from analytics.
