Acquisition-loving Nuance (NUAN) has reportedly snapped up VirtuOz, a developer of virtual assistant services for sales/marketing/customer support workers - VirtuOz calls itself "Siri for the enterprise." Though Nuance is better known for its consumer solutions, its enterprise ops generate $330M/year in sales. The acquisition report comes in a week where Nuance made a slew of CES-related announcements, and outlined a vision for a voice assistant platform that would follow users across devices.
