Like the skylights built for the Heinz 57 Center, every order placed with TRACO is unique. As a result, in-house engineers use sophisticated software to design high-performance architectural windows and to construct exact historic replacements. On average, each custom design generates 3.5 MB of new data for TRACO resulting in overall database growth of 26% per annum. In order to ensure manufacturing and billing processes were optimized in the wake of growing data volumes, TRACO needed an enhanced system that could help them improve processes.
In addition, TRACO needed to support their strategic goals to expand U.S. commercial and residential operations, and provide innovative architectural products to satisfy the ever changing marketplace and ensure the TRACO name remains synonymous with quality. Fueled by rapid growth from increased demand and complex customer needs, TRACO was seeking a sophisticated solution that would allow them to meet current needs with the ability to scale to satisfy future requirements.
To overcome these challenges, TRACO turned to Solix Technologies to help archive and purge historical corporate data as a means for addressing both immediate and long term requirements. TRACO implemented Solix Enterprise Database Archiving to generate and maintain custom archiving and data purge routines that would ensure referential integrity of database data. After implementing the Solix Enterprise Database Archiving solution TRACO will:
• Reduce time required to generate Advanced Supply Chain Planning;
• Improve online and background processing;
• Protect current hardware and software investments;
• Reduce cost of performance tuning, additional storage, memory, and processors, reduce operation cost;
• Reduce the time required for backup and restore; and ultimately providing for faster upgrades;
• Provide the infrastructure to manage long term data growth
”TRACO is committed to delivering only the highest levels of quality,” said Mustan Attaar, CIO, TRACO. “This is very cash intensive business, and we have heavy investments in upfront design costs and raw materials. We wanted to improve our IT systems to reduce costs and streamline our manufacturing operations, ultimately providing faster delivery and more value for our customers.
Solix’s Enterprise Data Management Suite of solutions gives us a strategic IT advantage, helping us to accelerate overall system performance while maintaining our current infrastructure. We are able to manage current growth while establishing the infrastructure and processes to support future expansions. This is a huge benefit for us and our clients.”
