KPMG has agreed to buy analytics technology provider Link Analytics LLC for an undisclosed amount in a move aimed at growing KPMG’s big data management portfolio.
The acquisition is intended to combine KPMG and Link Analytics’ offerings for clients to gain insights from volumes of enterprise data and make business decisions in real time, KPMG said Wednesday.
Lynne Doughtie, KPMG’s advisory vice chair, said the company aims for the integration to accelerate technology development in order to help organizations address complex data issues.
Atlanta-based Link Analytics builds network analysis and optimization applications that are designed to run on Hadoop, Teradata and Netezza platforms.
KPMG International launched an investment fund last month for a strategy to further build data analytics products and services.
