San Francisco -- MuseGlobal, a San Francisco-based provider of content integration and data virtualization services, said on Monday it will merge with Florida-based Yippy, a unified search company focused on clustering technology. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Yippy.com, formally www.clusty.com, is a deep research engine developed out of Carnegie Mellon University. The programs were acquired by Yippy in May 2010 from Vivisimo, which itself was acquired last month by IBM. IBM currently holds a 10% stake in Yippy. "Muse's data virtualization platform was built to simplify the daunting task of accessing, aggregating and filtering the staggering amounts of data from an ever increasing variety of external and internal data sources," said Kristina Bivins, the CEO of MuseGlobal. "With Yippy as a partner, we can feed complete, yet targeted information into a data cloud to deliver best-of-breed content to people in their personal and professional lives."
