It offers good functionality, high levels of reliability and stability, a cost-effective licensing model, and is backed up with excellent support. When we compare Ingres to other database technologies on the market, the Ingres database continues to be one of the best choices to power Lido/FlightPlanning.”

Actian X creates the perfect platform for adding operational analytics to an existing OLTP system. For example, an online shopping application could deliver a new set of data (browsing activity) that can be combined with customer’s historical data and analyzed in real-time to optimize the offer presented to the customer.
- Expand capabilities of existing applications
- Add clickstream data to historical customer information
- Identify targeted add-ons, cross sell, upsell opportunities
Actian X enables operational analytics on a per transaction basis.
DataConnect for Actian X and Ingres connects your application to data and applications inside and outside of the enterprise. DataConnect for Actian X can provide a direct connection to supplier inventory, or service partner maintenance status – both of which could be delivered on a scheduled batch basis (once per day) or on an alert basis (stock below 10%, item repair schedule change).
- Extend the reach of Actian X and Ingres applications
- Connect to internal and external data sources, update analytic and/or OLTP datastore
- Adjust offers in real-time, based on current inventory and delivery schedules
- Ensure customers see only available items or suitable alternatives

The Enterprise Monitoring Appliance (EMA) for Actian X uses pre-configured plug-ins to keep track of the health of the database and host system. EMA can monitor and set alerts for key system functions like disk usage and I/O performance, transaction and error log files, network latency and many more.
- Monitor key database and host system health indicators
- Deliver alerts at pre-defined thresholds
- Solve potential problems before they affect performance
- Use historical and trending information so schedule maintenance
The Enterprise Monitoring Appliance keeps key systems available and reliable.
Even the best maintained systems can be affected by unforeseen events – including natural disasters.
