LiveRamp (NYSE: RAMP), a San Francisco, CA-based data connectivity platform provider, is to acquire DataFleets, a cloud data platform that enables data silos to be unified without moving data or compromising privacy.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed. The transaction is expected to be completed in LiveRamp’s fiscal fourth quarter and is not expected to have a material impact on LiveRamp’s fiscal 2021 financial results.
