In a statement, Attivio chief executive Ali Riaz said: “Demand for information is exploding, with business users clamoring for new combinations of data types, drawn from new sources, in higher volumes than ever before. AIE’s value in quickly unifying and accessing the traditionally separate silos of enterprise data and content that limit business agility is resonating across an increasingly large group of customers and industries. We are thrilled to have General Electric Pension Trust as an investor to support us in meeting this growing demand.”
