Description of the innovation projectIn the technical field of ICT/Information Management, SADAS created "Sadas Suite": a trio of fully integrated software solutions ideal for the comprehensive management of a company’s data, from extraction and analysis to documentation and reporting. Sadas Suite includes: 1. Sadas Engine: a columnar DBMS for data warehousing able store and manage huge quantities of data, with exceptional performances during the phases of both ETL and inquiry (from 10 to 100 times faster than traditional databases); 2. Sadas BI: a Business Intelligence software to create management dashboards and corporate reporting documents; 3. Sadas Web: a web interface to access and query any size of archives on any database. Sadas Suite is a one-stop shop that allows to create powerful applications. Running on off-the-shelf hardware, there is no need for expensive appliances or third party licenses, in this way SADAS can keep the TCO very low. Sadas Engine was created in SADAS's R&D lab in partnership with the University of Pisa; then, SADAS autonomously created the other components of the Suite. SADAS has full ownership of Sadas technology and all the applications developed on top of it. All Sadas solutions are available both on premises and in cloud. Sadas technology is fully independent: it does not rely on other parties' software solutions.
State of dev.Product
Industrial applicationSADAS's revolutionary DBMS meets companies’ needs in their daily activities of sourcing, analyzing and managing their data. It is easy to integrate and very efficient in all ETL activities. Thanks to the quick set-up process, companies save time, allowing for better design & analysis. The maintenance cost is reduced and no DBA interventions are needed, thus guaranteeing money savings on management and maintenance. Being compatible with any data warehouse environment, Sadas technology can be introduced with no effort. Moreover, its front-end for dashboard & reporting works out-of-the-box.
Market segmentSADAS's solutions are suitable for all markets, so it is impossible to state a specific market segment. However, the organizations that benefit the most from Sadas technology are those that have to manage huge quantities of data, as SADAS's DBMS is specifically designed for storing, accessing and analyzing Big Data. Moreover, Sadas technology has a very low TCO. First of all, running on off-the-shelf hardware, there is no need for expensive appliances or third party licenses. Secondly, SADAS can guarantee money savings also on management and maintenance, as DBA interventions are not needed. All this allows SADAS to have a very low TCO.
Advantage factorSadas Suite is the ONLY commercial solution based on a truly columnar DBMS, completely designed, engineered and maintained by SADAS. SADAS developed and implemented unique features for its technology, allowing for a quicker development, lower TCO and much more competitive prices compared to other market solutions. With Sadas it is possible both to develop solutions otherwise impossible to create, and to develop solutions more efficient and at a much cheaper price than with competitors' technology. In this way, any organization can afford to have the technology and applications they need.
Commercial challengeSADAS has developed its own unique technology able to manage enormous volumes of data, perfect for Big Data analytics and IoT. Given the success reached by Sadas solutions in Italy, SADAS now wants to spread its technology also abroad. As explained above, SADAS can sell its solutions at very competitive prices. This allows resellers to consistently increase end-user prices for SADAS's products. In this way, not only do resellers have higher profit margins, but also customers can afford the technology they need and its maintenance at reasonable prices.
