Fast M2M-applications: EXASOL cooperates with m2m-Soft

The partnership of EXASOL with m2m-Soft pushes the development of data analyses for smart factories and machine-to-machine communication with innovative software tools and faster in-memory database technology.

Nuremberg, 31st of July 2013 – With the partnership with m2m-Soft, a producer of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, EXASOL is further expanding its partner network. m2m-Soft uses the in-memory database technology EXASolution of EXASOL for holistic real-time monitoring and the logging of measuring data and sensor data. In the future especially SaaS customers in industrial automation, the energy sector, the automotive industry and the public sector will profit from optimized acquisition, collection and analyses of industrial data. At the same time EXASolution offers a high scalability and therefore also a security of investment with consideration of increasing amounts of data as well as rising numbers of connectors and measuring points.

“After first joint campaigns, like the M2M-Talks in Linz and Augsburg, we want to intensify our partnership in the future”, explains Stefan Schneider, CEO of m2m-Soft. “EXASolution supports the software platform m2m-Cockpit with the necessary speed and the ability to rapidly evaluate and visualize even large amounts of industrial data.” At the same time the data analysis covers a wide bandwidth of data, e.g. sensor data, conditions, quality measurements, alerts and maintenance information. Besides the improved performance of time critical analyses and the high scalability of the database, statistic functions and programming languages like R, come into the focus of industrial data analyses.

“We are very pleased to have gained m2m-Soft as an expert in M2M communication and applications”, says Aaron Auld, CEO of EXASOL. “The expanding digitalization and automation of production processes show, that the topics M2M, Industry 4.0 and the Internet of things will become the core business in the production industry. With the closed partnership we contribute to the quality of industrial data analysis.”


EXASOL AG has developed a database management system (EXASolution) enabling the rapid analysis and evaluation of data. Companies can use the sector-independent solution that even analyses large quantities of data (“big data” and “value data”) to optimise business processes, generate a reliable basis for decision-making in their daily work and therefore gain a sustainable competitive edge. EXASolution is a relational high-performance database specifically designed for enterprise warehouse applications and business intelligence solutions. The database is based on in-memory technology and used for time-critical analyses, comprehensive data research, planning and reporting. By including geodata and polystructured data, which can also be connected from Hadoop systems, EXASolution (with the EXAPowerlytics module, among others) opens up additional analysis dimensions that enable even more efficient analyses. The easy-to-manage database can effortlessly be integrated into existing IT infrastructures and requires a minimal amount of administrative maintenance with low investment and operation costs (TCO). EXASolution is available as an appliance solution and data warehousing as a service under the name of EXACloud. Companies such as XING, Sony Music, Olympus, media control, Zalando, stayfriends, Coop, IMS Health, Semikron, Webtrekk, econda and xplosion trust in EXASOL’s technology that is ‘Made in Germany’.
