Intelligent data analysis for relevant information
The migration to a data warehouse solution from Exasol has helped XING take a big step forward. With improved system performance, it is possible to pose queries that previously had no chance of being answered.
Compared to the previous system, the performance has increased significantly; queries that were previously unthinkable are now possible. We are well-equipped for the future because the system is almost limitlessly scalable.Dr. Ulrich Fricke, former Teamhead Datawarehouse und Reporting at XING

XING (named openBC/Open Business Club until 17 November 2006) is a career-oriented social networking site for enabling a small-world network for professionals. The company claims that it is used by people from over 200 countries.
The Hamburg-based company has seen a marked increase in the number of members over the past few years. The volume of data grows with each new user. Enabling complex business intelligence tasks, however, completely overloaded the capacity of the database solution that was being used. The time to process data for one day has partially exceeded the 24-hour mark.
Since the start of 2009, XING has relied on the database management system Exasol as the basis for internal analyses. Since then, data volumes have increased more than fivefold. Nevertheless, this huge data volume does not pose a problem for the in-memory database to supply time-critical analyses and complex ad hoc reports in the shortest possible time.
