Deloitte said Monday it has purchased substantially all of the assets of Oco Inc., a developer of Software as a Service business analytics systems.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition extends Deloitte’s managed analytics capabilities. Deloitte will now offer an extended set of hosted analytics applications designed to provide automated data updates, data integration, data warehouses, reporting, dashboards, data visualization, data discovery, and a user interface that can be configured to a client’s needs.

“More and more businesses are looking for both analysis and real insights gleaned from multiple sources without having to make significant investments in internal infrastructure and support,” said Jane Griffin, a principal in Deloitte Consulting LLP. “This acquisition enhances our ability to help further an organization’s existing business analytics and data management strategy. We can help businesses realize faster time-to-value through more immediate access to critical business data from disparate sources.”

Deloitte will also be able to offer specialized solutions in the areas of mobile business analytics, benchmarking, and industry-specific analytic applications, along with dashboards, key performance indicators, reports and alerts.
