Information infrastructure technology and applications provider EMC has acquired a software development services and tools provider Pivotal Labs.
The acquisition will enhance EMC's products and services portfolio so that organisations can store, analyse and take action on 'Big Data.'
Pivotal Labs enables EMC to take the datasets perfected in Greenplum Chorus, a social and collaborative toolset designed for the Data Science team.
Modern programming environments such as Ruby on Rails can now be used by customers to build out big data applications.
Pivotal Labs enables both start-ups and global enterprise customers to build new applications and services that capitalise on Big Data.
EMC Greenplum division president and general Manager Bill Cook said the company has begun to work with Pivotal Labs on advanced development for EMC Greenplum Chorus, which opened data science teams up to a new way to collaborate through socially-enabled tools and techniques.
