KX-Smartia Technology Partnership Announcement

June 10, 2020

Smartia turbocharges its industrial intelligence platform MAIO with Kx, the world’s fastest in-memory time series database

Smartia headquartered in Bristol will benefit from technology and support from Kx, the technology division of First Derivatives. Kx and its database technology will be used to accelerate business growth and provide further benefits to customers.

By integrating MAIO with the Kx database platform, (the world’s fastest in-memory time series database), it will allow consumers of industrial data to quickly generate actionable insights for agile and strategic business decisions. Smartia deliver production ready AI and Machine Learning solutions that can be deployed at scale.
Companies are now starting to recognise that there is huge value in the data they create and hold allowing them to start planning on how to capitalise on that value as quickly as possible. The manufacturing and engineering sectors are one of the largest producers of data and it stems from production equipment, machines, sensors and other operational data sources.

Mauro Arruda, CEO of Smartia comments, “2020 will see AI & ML technologies become more targeted and more project-driven, more focused on achieving small, solid improvements that lead to big rewards. Companies big and small are beginning to realise that they actually don’t need to “go big with AI”. They just have to keep taking the right, small steps to reach new heights in process improvement. We are seeing industrial companies up and down the country using these technologies to lower production costs and improve outputs”

Some of the jaw dropping statistics that support the adoption of technologies such as MAIO, which combines Industrial IOT and AI applications include,

  • 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years alone
  • Most companies only analyse 12% of the data they have
  • Global Industrial IOT expenditure to reach $500 billion next year
  • Industrial AI could add £650b GVA through 25% higher productivity in the UK by 2027
  • European manufacturing industry is expected to spend £40b in AI & IOT this year alone
