Solutions Provided By Actian

Data Management:

Can one database do everything for your digital business? Not if you need to keep up with all your business transactions while also tapping into new data sources from social media, customer behavior, and even sensors. Not if you have operational applications requiring strict compliance and uptime while other applications demand agility and flexibility. You need a range of data management solutions that are the best fit and best-in-class for your particular business processes. That’s what Actian offers!

Actian X Hybrid Database: The new Ingres! The first relational database that continues to deliver enterprise-grade reliability and innovation to critical Fortune 100 customers – it just doesn’t break! Now with the world’s fastest analytic engine.

Actian Zen Embedded Database: The new PSQL! A small-footprint SQL and NoSQL database with zero administration overhead, ideal for embedding in applications by SMBs.

Actian NoSQL Object Database: An enterprise-class object-oriented NoSQL database, formerly known as Versant, best suited for hierarchy- or graph-oriented applications in which the data model is fundamental to performance and functionality.

Analytic Databases:

Big Data is no longer a trend in the near future – it has become a fact of life in the digital enterprise. The only way to get full value out of analytics is to have the underlying database technologies deliver analytics query results fast and at scale. Only Actian Vector technology can deliver from ten to almost one thousand times performance compared to open source alternatives while providing full ANSI SQL and supporting update capabilities without penalty. Available both on-premise and in the cloud.

Data Integration:

The average business has hundreds of applications, so keeping all that data synchronized can be a complex and daunting task. How do you link multiple databases? How do you link data on-premises and in the cloud? Across cloud applications? Who maps the different data fields, and who maintains the mappings? With over a decade of experience, the Actian data integration portfolio can handle all levels of integration, including application to application, traditional data integration, or even business to business integration with your trading partners.
