Microsoft has snapped up Israeli big-data start-up Equivio as it looks to beef up the analytics and machine-learning capabilities of Office 365.

The newly acquired firm - which has offices in Israel and the U.S. - provides businesses, particularly in the legal space, with technology to help them analyze and sort data in emails and other documents.

"Traditional techniques for finding relevant documents are falling behind as the growth of data outpaces people's ability to manually process it," said Rajesh Jha, Microsoft's corporate VP for Office 365 and Outlook.

"Equivio's solution applies machine learning to help solve these problems, enabling users to explore large, unstructured sets of data and quickly find what is relevant. It uses advanced text analytics to perform multi-dimensional analyses of data collections, intelligently sorting documents into themes, grouping near-duplicates, isolating unique data, and helping users to quickly identify the documents they need."

Users of Equivio's tech are able to "train" their systems to identify relevant and useful documents, Microsoft said, adding that the product has enjoyed success among a number of U.S. federal agencies and hundreds of law firms and other corporate customers.
