Pillsbury’s Stan Pierson and Gurpreet Bal co-led a team advising BlueData Software Inc. its sale to Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Terms were not disclosed.

Santa Clara-based BlueData has developed a software platform that aims to eliminate infrastructure challenges for companies by making it easier and faster for them to deploy artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data analytics. Adding BlueData’s platform to HPE’s existing software-defined infrastructure is expected to help the company improve agility for its data science teams and potentially reduce infrastructure costs.

Along with Pierson and Bal, the Pillsbury team included Omar Bailony, Charmaine Lindley, Howard Clemons, George Willman, C. Brian Wainwright, Paul Thomas, Danielle Bradley and Matthew Rabinowitz.
