“With the Denodo Platform, business stakeholders now have the flexibility they need, and they no longer have to rely on IT when they want to pull data.”
Diethard Frank IT Product Management, Big Data at Festo

As the world’s leading supplier of automation technology and technical education, Festo deploys its products and services to help customers implement smart production capabilities while going digital.

An independent, family owned company established in 1925 and based in Esslingen a.N., Germany, Festo has been a driving force in automation for over 60 years. With its unique range of offers, Festo has grown to become the world leader in technical education. 300,000 customers worldwide in factory and process automation put their trust in the company’s pneumatic and electric drive solutions. In addition, Festo Didactic provides state-ofthe-art training solutions for industrial companies and educational institutions throughout the world.

Festo helps manufacturing companies to improve productivity and efficiency through cutting edge automation products and solutions. But to do so, the company needs to ensure that its own organization operates at optimum efficiency. So when Festo wanted to deliver on-demand services, and found that it needed faster, more efficient ways of aggregating and analyzing data, the company implemented the Denodo Platform.

Automating the Future

The Denodo Platform provides real-time, virtual views of aggregated data that is tailored for business analysts, data scientists, and developers across multiple departments.

It integrates data from SAP BW, energy operations data via web services, machine data, and other sources, and the integrated data feeds dashboards and visualizations of energy KPIs that enable shop floor teams to gain instant visibility, engage in active monitoring, and ultimately drive energy saving efficiencies.
