Redwood City, Calif. -- Actian Corp. said Tuesday that c-store chain Sheetz has selected its Vectorwise data analytics engine to optimize costs, maintain high quality and ensure a positive customer experience.
“Data growth is occurring at record rates,” said Jarrid Magalich, technical services manager at Sheetz. “It’s important for Sheetz to have a plan to manage this growth, maintain and improve current service levels – even with a growing user base – and reduce infrastructure costs wherever possible.”
Sheetz said it may layer additional Actian products such as the Cloud Action Platform and Action Apps. The chain performs extensive analysis on numerous types of data from multiple sources as a way to optimize costs, maintain high quality, and ensure that the overall experience of their customers is positive and consistent. Actian’s Vectorwise enabled them to now expand that analysis from one year of data to two years (approximately three billion rows), as well as manage its anticipated growth (expected to double over the next two to three years).
