To even suggest that the construction and communication of a story could one day be taken over by computers can lead to eye rolling and dismissive scoffs. After all, storytelling is a uniquely human activity, one that requires creativity, emotion, and a connection with the human audience. At first glance, computer could never replicate such a thing, right? The conventional wisdom, however, might be off in this case. With the rise of big data, new ways to create and tell stories have been developed, leading many to rethink what they previously held to be true about the art of storytelling. As far-fetched as it may sound, big data analytics may one day become the most prominent way to tell a story, even if we don’t realize it.
The cloud computing marketplace is an evolving landscape filled with corporate giants, plucky startups, and creative innovators intent on launching the next big cloud breakthrough. In this constantly shifting environment, many cloud competitors are diligently working on ways to get an edge over their rivals. Part of this strategy, at least on the part of the larger cloud companies, involves acquiring cloud startups that feature unique services and products. This helps the larger companies diversify their offerings, increase their share of the market, and incorporate new ideas with the goal of moving their business forward. It’s a model that has been used in other industries, so it should come as little surprise that the cloud marketplace is pursuing it. Recent history shows the big names in cloud computing are eager to acquire promising startups. The following is just a brief look at acquisitions from the past few months.
Acquia has announced that they have closed a $55 million equity financing round through the help of Centerview Capital Technology. Centerview Capital specializes in partnering with the management teams of midsize companies they see as "high potential" for growth. Centerview Capital Technology led the financing round, with support from existing investors including New Enterprise Associates and Split Rock Partners. This funding will help Acquia scale its global operations, sales and marketing as well as the development of its solutions for building, delivering, and optimizing digital experiences.
