Edge database enables developers to embed enterprise capabilities
directly into Android mobile apps to power intelligent application

the hybrid data management, analytics and integration company, today
announced availability of the Actian Zen Core database for Android,
giving developers the ability to create more intelligent apps. Actian
Zen Core database for Android focuses squarely on the needs of Edge and
IoT application developers, providing persistent local and distributed
data across intelligent applications embedded in smart devices.

With Actian Zen Core database for Android, part of the Zen Enterprise
Edge Database family announced
in January
of this year, Android developers can harness a
comprehensive data management solution - at a lower total cost of
ownership - in a powerful, secure, and scalable engine. Actian Zen Core
database for Android lets developers deploy data across branch and
remote sites where it is accessible by thick clients, mobile thin
clients or even IoT devices. Developers can also extend out to mobile
workforces and operational technology environments with the same
enterprise-grade architecture for data management. This can all be done
without traditional field service and support burdens, integration costs
or increased security risks often associated with mobile and IoT data

"We wanted to build an edge database that would help alleviate the major
challenges and pain points that application developers face," said Rohit
De Souza, CEO and president of Actian. "We're dedicated to providing our
customers with solutions that quickly and efficiently aid product and
app development. Data management portability, security, and the ability
to support local and distributed analytics are paramount to the success
of an app and are key parts of what drives and supports Actian Zen Core
database for Android."

Actian Zen Core database for Android gives developers new features, such
as data management without requiring the aid of a database
administrator, portability across a broad spectrum of operating
environments (from edge IoT to cloud), accessibility from any program
language, and an embedded OEM model that enables developers to

"Until now, data management options for Android have been rudimentary
and limited, which ultimately limits the intelligence of an application
whenever it is not connected or when bandwidth preservation or speed of
response are considerations," said Lewis Carr, Senior Director of
Product Marketing at Actian. "With Actian Zen Core database for Android,
developers can manage local persistent data, and also share it, without
any of the integration or security challenges they often face from the
cloud or server-side application components when connected."

The Actian Zen Core database for Android is a NoSQL, zero DBA,
embeddable, nano-footprint (2MB minimum) edge database for SIs, ISVs,
OEMs, and Enterprise customers building in-house applications that need
to embed a data management platform in their Android apps, from
smartphones to POS terminals to industrial IoT. With direct data access
via APIs, self-tuning, reporting, data portability, exceptional
reliability, and compatibility, IoT and Edge developers can deliver apps
at scale across a wide range of platforms. Developers can build
apps using the Android SDK and other 3rd party tools to deploy on any
standard or embedded platform running Android. Actian Zen Core database
for Android supports zero ETL data sharing to any Actian Zen family
server or client database.

Actian Zen Core database for Android will officially be released during
the Strata Data Conference taking place September 11-13 at Javits Center
in New York, NY. An early access version of Zen will be available for
Apple iOS developers starting October 1, 2018. To learn more, visit here
