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.
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 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
