Scaling IoT and Product Automation For Double-Digit Cost Savings

The Gist

The challenge

edison street’s customers were already collecting a massive amount of data on premise – heating, cooling, oil, and water consumption – when its MySQL database started slowing down. They needed an easy to implement, future-proof solution to scale with edison’s fast-moving automation challenges.

The solution

Exasol’s in-memory analytic database integrated with edison’s robotics and machine-learning in a 10-week proof-of-concept – demonstrating flexibility, low costs, and fast performance – eventually replacing the entire data warehouse.

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Exasol team. [Exasol] enables us to bring ideas to life that would have otherwise just stayed in our heads as thoughts.”

Patrick Stupka, Project Manager


The benefits for Mangelberger

The edison team can now analyze in real-time large amounts of data from customer logs and sensors. Our machine-learning algorithms find patterns to increase automation – and with a new continuous flow of data sets, edison consolidates CAD/CAM, product automation, procurement, and logistics:

Client efficiency savings in the double-digits

Real-time data from devices in the cloud for automated planning of new installations

Improved transparency and after-sales support

Semi-automated system design process, material delivery, manufacturing, and lifecycle monitoring

Better environmental protections

Freed up employee time
