Composite Software is a data virtualization vendor. This company is likely to be picked up by Cisco Systems. Cisco, conventionally known for its networking products and services, is trying to make a big market for itself in the software and services sector too. And buying Composite Software for $180 million will certainly go a long way in helping the company. The data virtualization software from Composite Software works by taking data from different sources across the network. It enables organizations in looking at the data in a single location.
Cloud and big data can be integrated into this scenario. With the ability to look at data in such a comprehensive manner, an organization can make a better decision. One of the big names that has benefitted from Composite is NYSE Euronext.
For Cisco, Composite Software will also help in moving from physical to virtual offerings. It will also help Cisco integrate Composite’s products with SolveDirect, which is another company that Cisco is buying.
