We can slice more than 85% off the runtime of batch (end of day) processes and data migrations.
The team at Batch Performance has overcome the standard limitations of performance tuning by taking a different approach. We have developed an innovative technique to allow a standard batch program to be parallel processed. The order of execution remains unchanged. No code changes are required. This means that where a single instance of a program took one hour (01:00) to execute over ten million (10,000,000) rows, 10 instances of the program can process ten million (10,000,000) rows in approximately 6 minutes (00:06). This is an incredibly powerful technique. We at Batch Performance have achieved in-excess of 85% performance improvement using this approach. Example.
The team at Batch Performance specializes in significantly improving batch runtime. We are equally effective where the system has already been tuned by the system administrators and software vendor. Even when both the administrators and vendor are in agreement that they cannot do anything further without significant expenditure and ongoing maintenance overheads, we are available with an efficient and cost effective solution.
Batch performance problems have plagued operational teams and software vendors for as long as batch processing has existed. These systems perform vital business functions but may not have kept pace with the constant technical drive forward. The reasons for this are varied; ranging from the system being heavily customized (so difficult to upgrade), to vendors sunsetting products where development ceased. Ultimately, limited IT budgets and unsuitable best next alternative products mean that this situation and cycle is likely to continue. All large organizations and established software houses are familiar with this situation. With no immediate end in sight for legacy systems and ever increasing demands on efficiency, improving performance in the short term is key for the software to remain viable. This is particularly true if volumes are expected to increase or if the batch fits sub optimally within the batch window.
