ARRIS needed to ensure that valuable enterprise data within its PeopleSoft FSCM application was organized and easily accessible. At the same time, it needed to free up expensive disk space, lower storage costs, and reduce the backup window for data that was infrequently accessed. ARRIS’s traditional archiving solutions were ill-equipped to keep up with these demands.
Application performance had deteriorated because core systems were forced to process too much data. ARRIS used home-grown, manual data archiving processes to meet their data growth challenges within PeopleSoft application. But these data archival processes, which were completely based on custom scripts, could not scale and needed extensive programming resources to maintain and extend. It was also difficult to ensure compliance with corporate policies. Advanced archiving capabilities were needed to address the following challenges:
ARRIS worked with IBM Business Partner, Estuate, to implement a cost-effective data archival strategy based on IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ Archive. The solution:
Efficient database archiving improved application performance and reduced the overall cost and time of PeopleSoft upgrade process. Key benefits include:
ARRIS had reached a point where the business users were not able to make full use of our PeopleSoft implementation, while IT was struggling with manual archiving processes, application performance, storage and CPU costs and meet simple audit-related requests. Backups and maintenance were taking multiple day outages to accomplish. Estuate’s Data Archive Solution has improved the applications performance and controlled rapid data growth, and made our lives easier.
