IBM is to acquire DWL to improve its Information on Demand data services strategy.
The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, will see IBM add DWL’s data integration software to its product portfolio to improve its information management offering.
DWL has developed DWL Customer, which is a master data hub platform.
IBM said banks, financial services companies, retailers and manufacturers will benefit from a solution that can provide them with an integrated view of customer information, collated from different product lines and various parts of their business.
IBM said the solution can improve regulatory compliance and customer relations, as well as data integration.
