The Partnership of Webaction’s Real-time App Platform Empowered by Southpartner’s Expertise in the ICT Market Have Set the Stage to Launch the next Generation of Streaming Analytics in South America.
Palo Alto, CA and São Paulo, Brazil —November 10, 2014— WebAction, Inc., a leader in streaming big data analytics and Southpartner, the new business venture specialist for South America, have announced an alliance today to bring the WebAction Real-time App Platform to the South American market. Since it’s inception in 2012, WebAction customers have deployed real-time data driven apps solutions in the United States and Europe. Southpartner has helped numerous telco and IT companies to enter the South American market. In a recent survey by Accenture, 89% of top global executives believe that big data will revolutionize their operations the same way the Internet did, in Brazil that number jumps to 96%. This creates a significant opportunity for big data in South America and a need to implement efficient systems to manage and make sense of that big data.
“We are excited to launch this partnership, expanding our footprint into South America. Southpartner’s expertise accelerates the introduction of WebAction into this market,” Ali Kutay, CEO of WebAction.
With the volume of data increasing at an exponential rate, it is important to implement a big data solution that can scale out accordingly. The WebAction Real-time App Platform is an end-to-end solution that scales-out to grow with your big data needs. It processes data streams in-memory so that you can access the insights from your data in real-time, allowing you to make important decisions while they are most relevant.
“The Brazilian big data and analytics market is still in an early development stage and, as an emerging industry, offers great opportunities for WebAction’s end-to-end big data solutions,” says Svante Hjorth, CEO of Southpartner. “This is especially the case in traditional verticals such as financial services and telecommunications that are already mature enough to implement big data analytics.”
