Visual Numerics, a company with some interesting embeddable analytic products (reviewed here and here) has just been acquired by RogueWave, an embeddedble software component company. Details, such as they are, are in the press release. RogueWave’s focus on C++ make them an obvious home for the components VNI has been developing and RogueWave even has some analytic components (SourcePro Analysis). Both these factors should make them a good home for the work VNI has been doing. As always the devil is in the details and I don’t have any yet. Hopefully this will allow the embeddable analytics that VNI has developed to find more users and so increase the general adoption of analytics in software – something much to be desired. More once I get updated on the acquisition.
