About the Client

Our client is the leading manufacturer of rolled steel coils. The company buys, sells, processes, and transports coils. Being a market leader in the supply chain management, the company ensures a 100% contract performance rate. Multiple ranges of hot-rolled steel products account for successful fulfillment of contracts, thereby recognizing it as the effective leader in the manufacturing sector.

The organization is expanding its presence over major geographic areas. With effective capitalization and resource utilization, they have set themselves apart from their competitors.

The Business Challenges

  • The ERP of our client was on an on-premise Oracle Database. They later purchased a private-cloud ER. This ERP was using an open source, Postgres, as its database. The data warehouse was on-premise, and the source system was on the cloud, so the migration of data was the biggest problem.
  • Replicating the transactional data from Postgres to Oracle was frequently a challenge as well.
  • Due to multiple operations running simultaneously and the amount of data getting generated every second, their duplication on real-time was becoming the biggest of their challenges.
  • the absence of proper documentation led to manual copying of data from Postgres to Oracle. This problem was consuming their most valuable resource: time.

Our Solution

  • With the challenges of the organization in mind, we deployed an open-source ETL tool.
  • We provided scripts and commands to the tools, which helped pick data from the cloud.
  • The tool copied the table data from Postgres to Oracle, which was the warehouse reporting system.
  • In this manner, we were able to replicate the data two times a day and thus, mitigated the challenges of data migration and replication.

Key Results

  • Data Replication time reduced from 4 hours to 10 minutes.
  • Maintenance was simplified with the self-serviced ETL Tool.
  • Since we deployed an open source, no extra expenses were incurred.
  • Better utilization of resources helped reduce IT overheadcost.
