Over the years, companies can build up some pretty junky architecture, cobbled together from a combination of existing bulk load tools such as the BCP Utility, dbload or FTP servers. Not to mention, compressing, FTP-ing, converting, shredding, parsing, optimizing, loading and validating bulk data is a huge time suck!
Unless you think of yourself as Fred Sanford your system shouldn’t look like a junkyard. (Although, after seeing some companies’ architectures, I thought I was in it for “the big one.”) There has got to be a better way!
Accidental architectures are not just overly complicated, they can have real impacts on performance and can be tough to maintain down the line. The more this accidental architecture builds up, the more sluggish your system can get and the more convoluted processes like bulk load data transfer can get.
Instead of patching together a string of different processes, join us for a live webinar on September 30, 2010 at 11am EST to learn how you can get faster and slicker in your approach to data transfer. In other words, ditch the Sanford & Son architecture once and for all!
