Actian and SAINS to deliver Actionable BI to South East Asia

New partner agreement enables dramatically faster reporting and analytics for South East Asian government entities and multinational corporations.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – April 17, 2012 – Actian Corporation today announced it has signed a strategic partner agreement with Malaysia’s leading ICT systems integrator and solutions provider Sarawak Information Systems (SAINS) to deliver high performance analytics and actionable BI for government entities, and multinational corporations in South East Asia. SAINS will now offer the world’s fastest and most affordable analytical database Vectorwise, and enable customers to take action on big data with Action Apps.

SAINS is a wholly owned, Malaysian State Government company and has strategically developed a presence as a leading ICT Systems Integrator and Solutions Provider within the region. With 19 offices and subsidiaries in Malaysia as well as partners throughout South East Asia, SAINS has a history of award winning solutions for e-government and multinationals for Asia Pacific and World-Wide.

“Vectorwise and Action Apps are breakthrough technologies,” said Dato Teo Tien Hiong, CEO of SAINS. “In our experience, fast query performance is always an important factor in a successful business intelligence implementation. Vectorwise will enable our customers to experience dramatically faster reporting and analytics on large amounts of data. What makes Vectorwise unique is how it achieves this performance with less hardware and database tuning to produce happier end users and faster BI deployments at a lower cost.”

The record-breaking Vectorwise database last year smashed the Transaction Processing Performance Council’s TPC-H benchmark for 100GB, 300GB and 1TB on a single cluster by the largest margin ever recorded.

"We are thrilled to be working with SAINS in bringing Vectorwise and Action Apps to South East Asia," said Jason Leonidas, VP of Sales and Services Asia Pacific. "SAINS have a history of delivering innovative, award-winning solutions to their clients and we look forward to this continuing with Vectorwise and Action Apps."
