Microsoft on Monday announced its purchase of Israeli software start-up Zoomix for an estimated $30 million. Zoomix is the eighth Israeli start-up bought by the American software giant.
Zoomix attracted the Microsoft offer by developing a self-learning software that is able to parse, match, classify and clean data, and then apply what is has learned to any new input, reported Ha'aretz.
Zoomix will be integrated into Microsoft's SQL Server Data Platform. The company's research and development center will continue to operate in Israel.
Microsoft has several other research and development centers around Israel, as do Google, Intel and other technology leaders.
