IBM has recently announced its acquisition of Databand.ai, a Tel-Aviv-based data observability start-up company. Databand.ai provides services that alleviate data errors, poor data quality, and pipeline failures to prevent a company’s bottom line from being impacted.
IBM hopes to ensure data security at all times by acquiring Databand.ai. The tech giant expects to strengthen its software portfolio across artificial intelligence, automation, and data.
Data observability is a newly emerging prime solution that helps engineers and companies understand the status of their data and efficiently troubleshoot and address issues as they arise.
Databand.ai is IBM’s fifth acquisition in 2022.
Databand.ai employs an extendable and open approach that enables data engineering teams to integrate and gain observability in their data infrastructure. Through this partnership with IBM, Databand.ai will be able to expand its data integration capabilities to meet the needs of customers with commercial data solutions.
IBM will also benefit from this bilateral acquisition. Databand.ai has created a unified data pipeline observability solution for data engineers. This software will partner with IBM Watson Studio and IBM Observability by Instana APM to address the full spectrum of observability across information technologies.
With the acquisition of Databand.ai, IBM can offer the most comprehensive set of observability capabilities for IT across machine learning, applications, and data. IBM continues to provide its partners and clients with the technology to deliver reliable data and artificial intelligence at scale.
