ASG Software Solutions, a leader in IT infrastructure, content management and cloud computing software solutions for global enterprises, announced today that it has acquired RiverGlass, a leading provider of eDiscovery, advanced information collection, data management and analysis solutions. The integration of RiverGlass’ robust intelligent search technologies with ASG’s content management solutions will provide ASG customers with improved capabilities in data collection, management of structured and unstructured data, and access to meaningful analytics.
“At ASG our mission is to help customers optimize their IT environments by providing solutions to enhance efficiency, minimize risk and manage costs. It is critical for enterprises to have easy to deploy tools that manage ongoing data growth,” said Arthur Allen, president and chief executive officer at ASG. “By integrating RiverGlass’ technologies into our portfolio, we can help our customers gain control and better visibility into their business data.”
RiverGlass was formed in 2003 and is based in Champaign, Illinois. The RiverGlass offering was built leveraging eight years and $20mm of R&D efforts from the former Mosaic development teams at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Their intelligent search solutions provide search and monitoring capabilities across internal (customer) databases and repositories as well as structured and unstructured web based data. These tools are currently at work in government, law enforcement agencies, law firms, e-discovery service providers and major corporations.
”Our unique tools add depth and efficiency to ASG’s suite of content management solutions,” said RiverGlass CEO Kirk Dauksavage. “ASG provides RiverGlass a platform for growth and expansion in eDiscovery and corporate governance through their strong relationships with the Fortune 5000. In return, our current customers and partners can benefit from ASG’s software solutions in other key areas, such as cloud computing, applications management and infrastructure management.”
