Professional Measurement Data Management with vMDM
vMDM (Vector Measurement Data Management) is the solution for efficient management of large data volumes from development, test bench operation and vehicle tests. With vMDM, you can save your measurement data securely, protect it against unauthorized access and simplify the exchange of measurement data between distributed teams. With vMDM, large-scale CPU-intensive analyses, statistical metrics and reports are performed centrally on a server without any computational requirements on the engineer’s workstation.
Secure storage of measurement data from test benches, road testing and endurance testing
Protection of data through the separation of data files into collections with user-specific permissions
Easy searching, filtering and display of measurement data
Automatic indexing of measurement data on import
Flexible data indexing based on metadata containing measurement attributes, calculated metrics, and data provided by other systems
Automated data analysis and data mining on the vMDM server without any computational load on the user’s PC
Project-specific reporting of measurement data and statistical analysis
Scalable solution for multi-user environments
Familiar working environment through seamless integraton with the Vector tool landscape. You define scripts, data analytics and data mining functions as usual in vSignalyzer or CANape.

Server- and Cloud-Based Variants
Depending on your requirements or IT infrastructure, vMDM is available as a cloud-based solution or as the server-based vMDM Enterprise variant in which vMDM is installed on servers in your in-house network.
Scalable Multi-User Solution
vMDM is scalable as a multi-user system depending on the expected data volume and the required server performance. The measurement data is organized into customer- or project-specific data catalogs known as collections and is securely protected against unauthorized access by means of user-specific roles and permissions.
Index for Optimized Search Operations
Thanks to the measurement data index, data can be retrieved quickly, queries for specific views can be defined and analysis tasks can be restricted to specific measurement data. vMDM determines additional index data during its initial analysis of the measurement files as part of the pre-processing done when files are first loaded into the system. This permits extensive statistical metrics, analysis profiles and event counts in categorized measurement files in just a few clicks of the mouse.
Analysis of Measurement Data
Alongside analysis of the metadata stored in the index, vMDM also permits the signal-oriented analysis of the recorded measurement data. In this case, the data mining function familiar from CANape/vSignalyzer is used and allows you to fully automate the analysis of large data volumes on the vMDM Server quickly and easily. The analysis results are stored as PDF reports which can be consulted by users at any time.
The data in vMDM is protected against unauthorized access. vMDM user authorizations, specific read/write permissions and protection against accidental deletion all make secure data management possible. When vMDM is used in the cloud, a number of different measures (encrypted data transfer, client separation, ISO 27001) ensure a high level of data security.
