BCS Integrity Achieves Oracle Exadata Optimized and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized Status

Business Control Solutions today announced it has earned Oracle Exadata Optimized and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), demonstrating that BCS integrity version 3.8 has been tested and tuned with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle SuperCluster to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to customers. Business Control Solutions is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork.

By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized status, Business Control Solutions is able to offer its BCS integrity clients a significant increase in performance and scalability while processing millions of accounts per month. After adding application servers, Oracle Exadata increased performance 11x allowing BCS integrity to run 900 users concurrently whilst still having database CPU available. Reporting performance also showed an impressive 10x improvement enabling much faster management information retrieval. Data import performance returned a 2.5x uplift allowing more frequent data-loads throughout the working day.[1]

Oracle Exadata Optimized and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized are part of the Oracle Exastack Optimized program which allows partners, such as Business Control Solutions, to leverage OPN enablement resources and dedicated lab environments to help develop, test and tune their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle SuperCluster, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, Oracle Database Appliance and Oracle Big Data Appliance engineered systems. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine delivers extreme performance and is the ideal database platform for OLTP applications, data warehouses as well as the varied and unpredictable workloads of cloud computing.  It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure and redundant. Oracle SuperCluster, Oracle's most powerful Oracle Database Machine, is an integrated server, storage, networking, and software system that provides maximum end-to-end database and application performance.  It requires minimal initial and ongoing support and maintenance effort, and helps reduce complexity at the lowest total cost of ownership. Oracle SuperCluster is ideal for Oracle Database and best for Oracle Applications customers who need to maximize return on their software investments, increase their IT agility, and improve application usability and overall IT productivity.

 "The Oracle Exadata platform significantly increased BCS integrity's performance and scalability. Using additional application servers we were able to increase the number of concurrent users by over 100 percent whilst still having database CPU time available. This means our clients have access to key financial information faster than before," said Adrian Somerville, Managing Director, Business Control Solutions.


"Oracle Exastack Optimized recognizes partners who have optimized their solutions on a complete, integrated and cloud-ready infrastructure in order to help them accelerate innovation, unlock new features and functionality, and deliver superior value to users," said David Hicks, Vice President, Worldwide ISV, OEM and Java Business Development, Oracle. "By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized status, Business Control Solutions has demonstrated its BCS integrity product is tested and tuned to work with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle SuperCluster to help deliver optimum performance, scalability, and reliability to their customers."
