ZŰRICH – Teralytics, the global platform for human mobility analysis, today announced it has acquired the Streetlytics mobility data business from Bentley Systems (Nasdaq: BSY), the infrastructure engineering software company.
Streetlytics’ team of mobility data analytics experts, led by industry veteran Michael Clarke, will boost Teralytics’ capabilities and grow their presence in the North American market. Mr. Clarke, previously President and CEO of Citilabs, will join Teralytics in the newly appointed role of President, reporting directly to Teralytics’ CEO, David Reed. Bentley has partnered with Teralytics to leverage the company’s data services for Bentley’s mobility simulation solutions, which support transportation planners and engineers around the globe. As part of the transaction, Bentley is investing in Teralytics and will join its Board of Directors. Teralytics’ existing investors are also taking part in the round.
“The Streetlytics’ mission and values align perfectly with ours,” said Mr. Reed. “Having the team on board will deepen our ability to serve customers across a number of industries through our truly global, independent analytics platform. We are also looking forward to partnering with Bentley, whose global reach opens new opportunities for Teralytics to deliver our insights at scale.”

Teralytics analyzes data from a diverse set of sources, applying powerful data science to create transformative insights into human mobility. The integration of the Teralytics and Streetlytics technical stacks will create a powerful scalable mobility analytics platform providing unmatched global data coverage and insights.
“I am thrilled for our team to be joining Teralytics, whose quest to improve decision-making in governments and businesses through mobility analytics matches our own beliefs and ambitions,” said Mr. Clarke. “Global, always-on understanding of mobility has never been more relevant, as governments and operators seek to plan, design, operate and maintain effective, efficient and sustainable transportation systems during a period of unprecedented change. Businesses everywhere are also looking to improve their growth and profitability through a rich understanding of the moving consumer.”
