RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – IBM, its focus primarily now on cloud computing and artificial intelligence, has sold its i2 intelligence analysis product portfolio to Harris.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

IBM, which late last year spun off its services group in a new company known as Kyndryl, offered three i2 products:

  • i2 Analyst’s Notebook
  • i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis (EIA)
  • i2 iBase platforms

“The acquisition positions Harris to further deliver mission-critical applications for national defense, state & local law enforcement, maritime security as well as evidence management,” Harris said in Tuesday’s announcement.

“i2’s advanced analytics and intelligence analysis tools, such as the industry leading i2 Analyst’s Notebook, help analysts transform data into decisions in near-real-time, uncover hidden connections with visual displays, and turn overwhelming and disparate data—regardless of the source—into actionable intelligence.”

Harris is part of Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU).
