Calligo acquires decisive data to accelerate data insights services


Calligo, an end-to-end managed data services provider, today announced it has acquired Decisive Data, a pioneer in data analytics, data science and visualisation. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The integration of US-based Decisive Data’s capabilities in data science and data analytics into Calligo’s existing data insights team, alongside its global privacy and security-centric managed data services, creates a more accessible and compliant data insights service for modern businesses.

Decisive Data was established in 2008 in Redmond, Washington, and now helps some of the largest global brands in technology, retail, telecoms, healthcare and other verticals to use deep data insights to make critical decisions and realize better outcomes in efficiency, growth and profitability.

Backed by Investcorp Technology Partners, this is Calligo’s tenth acquisition since it launched in 2012.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Decisive Data team members, customers and partners to Calligo, and am extremely excited about the capabilities being added to the Calligo portfolio,” said Julian Box, Founder and CEO of Calligo.

“Businesses today are under tremendous pressure to maximize their capabilities and efficiencies as budgets tighten and markets become tougher. Data and its intelligent exploitation is the well-known solution, but only if done so responsibly, safely and compliantly. With today’s addition of Decisive Data’s talented team members and its technology to Calligo, we will accelerate businesses’ ability to cost-effectively ramp up their data insight efforts – all while ensuring that their data remains secure, private and observes all applicable data regulations.”
