Antuit Acquires AuriQ Systems’ Japanese Business

Goldman Sachs Backed Global Data Analytics Firm to Integrate AuriQ’s Powerful Suite of Data Management Software Solutions

Singapore and New York – November 30, 2015 – Antuit, a global Big Data solutions company, today announced the acquisition of AuriQ Systems Co. Ltd. (“AuriQ”), a Japanese subsidiary of AuriQ Systems, Inc., a leading provider of data management software solutions that help enterprises, datacenters and e-businesses increase revenue and reduce operation costs.

Once complete, Antuit will integrate into its portfolio AuriQ’s suite of data management solutions including Essentia, the company’s flagship product that helps companies manage, process and analyze vast amounts of unstructured, semi-structured and structured data. Essentia is a cloud-based solution designed to address common issues when working with big, complex and/or dark data. It is optimized to work with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

“This is an important milestone for Antuit as we augment our team, extend our product portfolio and expand our presence in Japan,” said Arijit Sengupta, CEO of Antuit. “We are now able to leverage the powerful capabilities of AuriQ’s products, like Essentia, to accelerate the process of analyzing all types of data and help our clients achieve business impacting results.”

This is Antuit’s second significant acquisition since securing an investment of up to $56 million this past January from a group of investors led by investment bank Goldman Sachs to support global expansion through organic growth and acquisition. In April, the company acquired Prognos, an advanced analytics specialist in the retail and consumer packaged goods sector.

This acquisition broadens Antuit’s product portfolio while expanding its client base in the Japanese market. The two companies have already been working together, coupling Antuit’s analytic solutions with AuriQ’s data management platform to help companies like Orix Life Insurance, a Japanese life insurance provider, better segment, track and boost new customer acquisition through digital channels.

“We are excited to join forces with Antuit,” said Ko Ikudome, CEO and Founder of AuriQ Systems Inc. “The combination of Antuit’s advanced analytics solutions with our data management platform will help our clients drive even more value from disparate pools of data and achieve actionable, business-elevating results.”
