The IT giant acquires long-time partner that provides software that makes it easier for business and IT professionals to view large documents and images.

In an effort to complement its existing big data capabilities and solutions, IBM (IBM 0.10%) has acquired a longtime business partner, U.K.-based software provider Daeja Image Systems, IBM announced today. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Daeja's solutions, according to IBM's statement, allow users to "open and view hundreds of document and image file formats, even if the native application is not present on their devices, which saves time and enables social collaboration and document sharing across the organization." IBM also noted that Daeja's technology is utilized by more than 4,000 customers, across multiple industries.

Doug Hunt, head of IBM's Enterprise Content Management business, was quoted in the press release as saying, "The acquisition of Daeja will simplify how business data is viewed by department or line-of-business users."
