Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire Truviso

Acquisition Reinforces Cisco's Commitment to Intelligent Networking by Providing Customers with Enhanced, Real-Time Data Analytics
May 03, 2012

SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 3, 2012 – Cisco today announced its intent to acquire privately held Truviso, Inc.  Based in Foster City, Calif., Truviso provides scalable, real-time network data analysis and reporting software. Together, Cisco and Truviso will provide instant access and visibility into network use and services to help increase operational efficiencies and drive new revenue streams for customers.   

The proliferation of end-user devices and growth in network-connected applications is exponentially increasing the amount of data on the network. Both service provider and enterprise customers are looking for ways to better understand this data and act upon it in real-time to improve operations, customer experiences, and service offering differentiation. Truviso’s continuous query technology, with its analyze-first, store-later capability, addresses this requirement by allowing companies to get detailed information and visibility of network use and services in real-time.

Truviso’s software analytics further strengthens Cisco’s network management platform, Cisco Prime, with the core technology to gather and analyze streaming data.  

“Customers want to be able to tap into and better analyze the enormous volume of data traversing their networks to identify ways to enhance services and generate new revenue opportunities,” said Jamie Lerner, vice president and general manager, Cisco Network Management Technology Group.  “Embedding Truviso’s real time business intelligence into the network will help customers unlock these capabilities at the speed of the network.”

The Truviso acquisition reinforces Cisco’s commitment to delivering intelligent networks and supports its five foundational priorities - core, data center, virtualization, collaboration, and video - with differentiated analytics technology. The Truviso team will be integrated into the Cisco Network Management Technology Group.

Specific financial terms of the transaction are undisclosed.  The acquisition of Truviso is subject to various standard closing conditions and is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of Cisco’s fiscal year 2012.
