New IBM InfoSphere Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) Offering Built with Actifio Technology

Waltham, Mass. – February 5, 2018 — / — Actifio today announced an OEM agreement with IBM through which IBM will leverage Actifio’s patented Virtual Data Pipeline technology for its new IBM InfoSphere Virtual Data Pipeline (VDP) offering.

The new IBM offering is designed to help organizations speed up the modernization, development and evolution of new data-driven applications within hybrid and multicloud environments.

Steve Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, said, “From our brand new 2019 IT Spending Intentions research, we know that for those who consider IT a ‘business inhibitor,’ 43% say so because ‘It is difficult to access the data we need for business operations and analysis.’ Not being able to access any data, anywhere at any time, for any purpose is a massive problem when the world of business is trying to digitally transform. Actifio was built to solve this problem.”

IBM InfoSphere VDP is designed to provide customers with a secured, self-service platform to quickly access any point-in-time copy of a production dataset and efficiently update it with the most recent copy, for application development in multicloud, hybrid cloud or on-premises environments. This self-serve data access capability can help accelerate time to market for application development and modernization, while helping to reduce costs associated with both traditional and continuous delivery (DevOps) software development lifecycles.

Rob Thomas, General Manager, IBM Analytics, said, “By enabling clients to quickly and simply access production data that is kept updated incrementally, IBM InfoSphere VDP can help clients accelerate testing and application modernization. This speed and agility is crucial to be successful in a today’s dynamic, ever changing business environment and further helps our clients make their data ready for AI.”

Ash Ashutosh, founder and CEO of Actifio, said, “We have had a relationship with IBM for years, and no other company understands data-driven enterprise user needs better than IBM. This latest chapter in our alliance advances our ability to help customers as they undertake data-driven application transformation initiatives. This alliance is further validation of Actifio’s track record of developing technology that enables enterprises to accelerate application modernization and truly leverage their data as a strategic asset.”

Building on market-leading innovation in hybrid and multi-cloud technologies, Actifio solutions increasingly drive enterprises’ critical digital transformation initiatives to accelerate DevOps and analytics.
