Objectivity, Inc., the leading provider of object-oriented, real-time data management platforms for software applications with complex data management challenges, has published an interview with a chief software architect at a leading Automation Vendor in the Process-Automation industry, revealing how the integration of Objectivity/DB helped the company:

  • Achieve real and sizeable productivity gains
  • Reduce customer installment costs by 30 percent
  • Drive down configuration and training costs by 60 percent
  • Win a benchmarking exercise in less than half the time it took the competitor

The interview showcases the plant architecture's success when management used Objectivity's flagship product to build a unified persistence platform that enabled all of the company's disparate software applications to store and share data cohesively. One deployment of the platform yielded a 60 percent reduction in both configuration and training costs, while another implementation project realized a 30 percent decrease in total costs.

A third deployment demonstrated that Objectivity/DB was not only more cost efficient but also faster than other systems tested; Objectivity/DB enabled the completion of a project in six hours that had taken a competitor's solution more than two days.

"This interview is a perfect illustration of the kinds of opportunities our customers can manifest when they implement our product," said Objectivity CEO Jay Jarrell. "Objectivity/DB consistently performs beyond the expectations of our customers, allowing them to generate more results with fewer resources. Our product gives our customers a competitive advantage in a faster, flatter world."
