The VAR Guy: Recognizes the Funding and Striim Rebranding
The VAR Guy reports on WebAction’s Series B funding led by Intel Capital, as well as on the rebranding of WebAction’s streaming data integration and streaming analytics software, and the GA of the Fall Release of the Striim platform.
The article highlights the renaming of WebAction’s software to, “Striim to reflect its use in end-to-end streaming integration and intelligence… the change is in name only, with the platform itself remaining the same as its original product.”
Michael Cusanelli points out that the funding will be used to deepen the Striim (pronounced Stream) technology offering and bolster marketing.
Specific product features mentioned include support for both Kafka and Hive as targets, dynamic file management for Hadoop/HDFS, and advanced event correlation.
