Data drives manufacturing

Bringing you from data to decision with confidence.

Manufacturing data solutions offered by Actian

Explore our process

All manufacturing begins with an idea, and ideas begin with data. Data mined from market trends and consumer behaviors—stored meticulously in and databases– informs the creation of new products during R&D, which transform from idea to design to reality.

Data collected from disparate sources and stored in databases is analyzed to identify opportunities for innovation and improvement.

Data from prototype simulations is integrated with project management systems to streamline design iterations and prototyping cycles.

Learn more

RDBMS databases structured for historical analytics models collect sales data, market trends, and resource availability data, which is then integrated with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to align production schedules with forecasted demand and resource availability.

Edge databases collect real-time data from IoT sensors on machinery and quality control systems, which then integrate with MES systems for real-time monitoring and control of manufacturing processes.

with Actian

"With the evolution of the Zen architecture, we can now deploy a small footprint/IoT-enabled database that can run in a serverless mode with just client libraries."

"From our first adoption to the present, of course, we have considered changing database several times, but when it came to an actual performance test, other powerful databases could not reach Actian Zen’s reading and writing speed at all."

"It’s very reassuring to know that our solution, which keeps airplanes and passengers safe, is backed up by a database that has for so many years been playing in the ‘premier league'."

"We have been able to save a huge amount of time spent pulling data and manually reconciling data when we find errors or discrepancies. We are now able to actually spend time analyzing areas to move the business forward."

"Actian Ingres represents an evolutionary concept, which I like. There is no steep learning curve involved with the database, there is no magic that has to be learned, and you don’t need lots of hardware to benefit from its performance."

The future of manufacturing

Manufacturing is on the cusp of a revolutionary transformation, driven by the advent of Industry 4.0 technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT). Expect unprecedented levels of efficiency, customization, and automation, with an emphasis on sustainability and circular economy principles.
