Dell on Monday said it acquired StatSoft, a company that specializes in analytics and data visualization software.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. StatSoft is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma and operates in 25 countries.

The purchase gives Dell an information management and analytics play for its software portfolio. StatSoft's tools will go along with Dell's database management, optimization and integration applications.

StatSoft's flagship software is Statistica Enterprise, which filters and analyzes data from multiple repositories. An enterprise server, data mining suite and modeling tool all fly under the Statistica brand.
