A new press release reports, “Actian, the hybrid data management, analytics and integration company, today announced new multi-platform editions of the industry leading Actian Zen Embedded database solution family designed to address the demanding scale-down and scale-out requirements of data-centric IoT solutions. This innovative offering provides the industry with the first enterprise-ready embedded database solution that works across gateways and edge devices, giving developers a seamless experience when moving data from edge to edge across the enterprise.”
The release goes on, “Historically, developers targeting gateway and edge devices had to work with multiple databases and data management solutions on each application, which required custom data transformation and integration code for each pair of databases. Compounding the problem, the typical enterprise involves many different types of databases, operating systems and hardware architectures, making a true hybrid data system very difficult to build, deploy and maintain. The result is slower development cycles, high support costs and increased complexity. Actian Zen’s technology breakthrough delivers a common data type and file format across a wide range of platforms – from the edge to the gateway to the enterprise – eliminating the need for customized Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) and integration code and enabling developers to focus on creating value-add application features.”
