i2 Group (i2), a wholly owned subsidiary of N. Harris Computer Corporation (Harris), is extending its portfolio of solutions for intelligence analysis through the acquisition of Rosoka Software Inc (Rosoka).
This investment by Harris comes only six months since it acquired i2 and demonstrates their commitment to i2’s continued growth. The acquisition will strengthen i2’s capabilities in the delivery of its mission-critical software that supports homeland security, state and local law enforcement, and financial crime investigations.
The technology secured by the acquisition of Rosoka means that when it comes to data analysis, unstructured data is no longer a barrier. This capability, which is now available in the i2 portfolio, will allow data analysts and investigators to extract insights automatically from a variety of documents such as Microsoft® Word, PDFs, and web pages. It will allow a multitude of new unstructured data sources to be immediately exploited by i2’s global user base.
Jamie Caffrey, Executive Vice President of i2 Group, said:
"Bringing the Rosoka solution into i2 is a game changer. It further enhances our products’ capabilities and will improve an analyst’s time to value by deriving insight from the mass of unstructured data they confront every day. Documents can now be directly imported into the i2 product they already use and be immediately ready for analysis.
"Harris’ support of i2 extends beyond this acquisition and is backed by the significant investment in both our expert teams and the solutions we provide. We have recently released software updates across the entire product suite and this acquisition builds upon our mission to provide the most capable and trusted global intelligence analysis platform."
Gregory Roberts, CEO and Founder of Rosoka, said:
"We already have a splendid working relationship with Jamie and the i2 team and to join the Harris family is an amazing opportunity for Rosoka’s solutions to be adopted more widely. I look forward to working with i2 to provide even greater capabilities to data analysts and investigators globally."
With an estimated 80% of all enterprise data being unstructured, Rosoka will be a force multiplier for the i2 product line. It will allow i2 users to consistently and repeatably analyze documents in over 200 languages to extract key relationships, geospatial locations, and the underlying sentiment in those associations.
As a key historic partner of i2, the Rosoka brand will become part of i2's business. The unstructured document data capability is available immediately in the new i2 TextChart product line.
