With Guavus, Thales accelerates its digital strategy

Thales has completed the acquisition of Guavus, one of the pioneers of real-time big data analytics.
Guavus is perfectly suited to help address the growing needs in big data by providing a recognised industrial platform particularly adapted to real-time analytics and designed to be easily implemented across any number of new markets.

Headquartered in San Mateo, California, in the Silicon Valley, the company employs 250 people, of which 60 are based in California, 50 in Montreal (Canada) and 140 in Gurgaon (India). Its revenues are expected to exceed US$30 million for the current fiscal year.
“Thales is very excited that this acquisition has now closed and welcomes Guavus’s talents as part of its family,” declared Patrice Caine, Thales’s Chairman and CEO. “Combined with our established expertise in other key digital technologies, the acquisition of Guavus represents a tremendous accelerator of our digital strategy for the benefit of all our customers, whether in aeronautics, space, rail signaling, defense or security.”

Big data analytics constitutes, with connectivity, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, one of the key technologies of the digital age. These technologies are at the heart of Thales’s digital strategy.
