With an out-of-box approach, InfoCepts proposed its accelerator, Real-Time Data Streamer (RTDS), to enable fast-track processes powered by real-time intelligence. It quickly optimized inventory, shipping, order fulfillment, and workforce management for our customer’s distribution center.
Beginning with a thorough assessment of our customer’s situation, the InfoCepts team quickly realized that the legacy systems had room for less than 2% additional CPU overhead. System utilization was at its peak, restricting its support of business teams on real-time analytics use cases.
We had to plan for a scalable solution that could process hundreds of million rows. Its performance would provide less than a minute latency in delivering faster insights from data warehouses and data lakes, as well as from enterprise source systems.
Fortunately, RTDS product ships with the inherent benefits of a packaged solution. Yet it’s still being customizable to set up data pipelines between a wide range of source and target systems. During its implementation phase, our customer was able to garner the benefits of real-time integration and change data capture (CDC) dependent on change journaling—implying a “zero-footprint architecture” and consuming less than 0.3% CPU load on existing systems.
At its core, RTDS is a highly resilient and fault-tolerant replication solution that guarantees zero data loss and cost optimization. Having a reliable, log-based solution from an established partner—at a quarter of the cost and in four months’ time—made perfect business sense for our customer.
At the final value delivery stages, our customer realized that the real transformation was being able to shift from nightly batch processes to all-day streaming enabling real-time campaign management, item pricing, and inventory maintenance with a few clicks.
