OCF acquires Intense Computing to strengthen analytics expertise

22nd November, HPC, storage and data analytics integrator, OCF, has acquired a majority share of Intense Computing Ltd, a provider of data and analytics consultancy and solutions. Intense Computing will be a subsidiary company of OCF Plc and is being renamed OCF DATA Limited, strengthening and enhancing OCF’s data and analytics service for customers.

The growth in data and analytics together with the Internet of Things (IoT) is estimated to add £322bn to the UK economy by 2020, in addition to creating 182,000 new jobs, according to research carried out by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR). Its report was based on 409 interviews with senior UK decision makers, as well as official government data.

OCF DATA Limited is led by Prof Cliff Brereton (co-founder Intense Computing Limited), former Director of the Hartree Centre, the World’s largest high performance and data analytics centre devoted to delivering industry-focused solutions. OCF DATA Limited develops transformative solutions using data and analytics for customers, specifically in manufacturing, health, education, construction and Government.

“By acquiring Intense Computing Limited, overnight we are strengthening our expertise and capability to deliver transformative analytics solutions for customers,” says Julian Fielden, managing director, OCF. “The new OCF DATA Limited is now boosting our knowledge in the delivery of Business Intelligence solutions, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, enabling us to better support those customers that increasingly look for innovative solutions and insights using data and analytics.”

“We are excited that new customers are transforming their businesses by adopting Data and Analytics solutions and services designed and delivered by OCF DATA using advanced and market leading analytics technologies from SAS”, Ian Cosnett, SAS.

Since its founding in 2015, Intense Computing has earned its reputation delivering transformative solutions which deliver real ROI from analytics deployments. The acquisition is enabling OCF to deliver Intense Computing’s IP and methods more widely to customers using a new and developing sales and technical team within OCF DATA Limited as well as the existing talent within OCF plc.

“OCF Data has recently delivered a fully hosted data analytics solution to Integrated Radiological Services, built on SAS software. This has significantly reduced our workload in processing clients’ data, allowing our staff to divert their time to using the powerful analytics tools for greater insight. This solution allows IRS to deliver an enhanced service to our customers and will allow us to further develop our services using advanced data analytics”, Mike Moores, Managing Director, Integrated Radiological Services Ltd.
