End-to-end, multi-cloud technology solutions company, Rackspace Technology is set to acquire Just Analytics, a provider of cloud-based data, analytics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) services based in the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.
According to the company statement, Just Analytics was founded in 2011 and has more than 100 employees headquartered in Singapore with an additional employee presence in Vietnam and India.
Just Analytics helps clients design and create scalable data pipelines using its proprietary data platform, Guzzle, coupled with new-age cloud-based data and analytics services that transform data into insights, giving customers a unified view of their information assets.
Just Analytics' data platform is listed on Microsoft Azure Marketplace and automates the movement and transformation of any volume, variety, and velocity of data from a wide array of sources to data pipelines at scale for production. Just Analytics AI leverages Guzzle to enable the deployment of predictive capabilities solutions and business intelligence to analyze data from critical business and operational functions for business end-users.
“The acquisition of Just Analytics ties into our growing professional services focus and brings market-leading Cloud-based data, analytics and AI capabilities that are in demand from our customers and prospects,” said Kevin Jones, CEO of Rackspace Technology.
According to Jones, the move will further enhance the company's strong presence in the Asia Pacific region. “In addition, we will benefit from the company's strong APJ regional ties, talented employee base, and natural evolution up the IT services stack. These benefits will provide a clear tie between our services and important customer business metrics,” Jones said.
Speaking on the acquisition Hemanta Banerjee, Founder and Chief Architect for Just Analytics said, “by combining our capabilities with the Rackspace Technology global presence, resources, and scale, we can shift our focus to solely growing our existing business while Rackspace Technology integrates business functions to help us grow.”
Rackspace Technology will keep the Just Analytics brand for the foreseeable future as the company has built a well-known and respected brand among the leaders and customers of Microsoft Azure Data Analytics.
