This new strategic relationship will enable Directed Technologies to:

  • Pioneer a truly global solution that caters to local market needs of vehicles that are manufactured in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific
  • Enable dramatically reduced driver violations, fuel consumption, and maintenance costs for OEM and fleet vehicle operators
  • Address the rapid growth in its business and the exponential expansion of connected vehicle data
  • Build a new revenue stream by launching its data-analytics-as-a-service offering
  • Continue to accelerate its product evolution and innovation

Directed Technologies has deployed millions of turnkey OEM-branded vehicle multimedia units (MMUs), telematics solutions, and accessories for leading global manufacturers. More than 1,800 fleets utilize telematics devices manufactured in house at Directed Technologies, and more than 300,000 heavy vehicles have its MMUs onboard. OEMs also rely on Directed Technologies’ data analytics for connected vehicle insights. Legacy database systems brought a lack of capability to rapidly scale with the business and also saddled it with high management overhead. The monolithic rather than microservices-oriented architecture further limited its ability to rapidly run artificial intelligence and machine learning models. It wanted one database for all its data needs – from delivering unlimited storage to enabling real-time data analysis.

Directed Technologies knew that it needed a modern database with optimal flexibility, scalability, and security. It was also looking for a supplier that would meet its requirements of ease of integration, speed, and reliability along with a scalable and flexible pricing model. Even more, it is critical for Directed Technologies to find partners who understand and share its company values and both its APAC and global strategic business goals.

SingleStore now enables Directed Technologies to manage high data volumes on a real-time basis. It employs SingleStore’s single, scalable database for all its data. SingleStore was also one of the few database suppliers that could meet Directed Technologies’ requirement to address both cloud- and on-premises data. This was important to enable the company, which is based in Melbourne, Australia, to allow some of its applications to remain on premises.
