Sysomos announced that it has acquired Expion in a bet on the integrated suite strategy for social media management and analysis. The move signals a new expansion phase for Sysomos, which separated from Marketwired earlier this year. The company has around $100 million available to support the development of its core data science technologies and new products, and it plans to fill up to 200 new positions to meet its goals.
Sysomos was acquired by Marketwired in 2010 and spun out after OMERS Private Equity bought the combined company in early 2015.
