10 Things To Know About Cisco's Acquisition Of Viptela
Cisco Also Acquired Saggezza's Analytics Team
Although it didn't make as big of a headline, just three days after Cisco announced its intention to buy Viptela, the vendor also unveiled plans to acquire the advanced analytics team and associated IP property within Saggezza, a privately-held technology services company based in Chicago, Ill. Cisco said the talent it's bringing in around analytics, cloud and secure platform development will complement Cisco DNA similar to Viptela's technology. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"This team has been responsible for developing innovative technology that powers Saggezza's internal analytics platform, which enables customers to rapidly acquire and analyze data, creating complex rules and new data visualization applications," said Rob Salvagno, vice president of corporate business development for Cisco, in a blog post.
