Challenges

A word from Atlantia Bertin Concessões S.A. (AB Concessões)

  • “With Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 we gained a dynamic, flexible, and scalable IT environment to support our business-critical, toll-gate monitoring and collection systems. We improved our system’s availability, which is critical for a 24/7 highway management operation.” – Antonio Valceni de Oliveira Tome, Technical Coordinator, AB Concessões S.A.

  • Create a high performance, highly available, and scalable infrastructure to avoid operational bottlenecks in its highway and road management system environment
  • Guarantee security and reliability for mission-critical applications, such as toll gate monitoring and collection systems, 24/7

Solutions

  • Improved transactional run times for all systems by 60% by implementing Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 to provide a robust infrastructure that eliminates bottlenecks to system access
  • Developed complete contingency for the infrastructure with Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Active Data Guard—ensuring constant system availability and business continuity for the organization’s 24/7 highway and road management operations
  • Reduced from three hours to 20 minutes the time needed to monitor database performance by using Oracle Tuning Pack and Oracle Diagnostics Pack, which allowed the IT Department to identify SQL transactions that consume more resources, helping them to be more proactive in resolving processing bottlenecks
  • Enabled the company to complete storage routines during business hours without affecting the performance of back-office transactions
  • Worked with a single vendor, improving and expediting support in the event of service interruptions

Why Oracle

“We chose Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 because it integrates hardware, the operating system, databases, and networks into a single system that requires few configurations. We also streamlined IT environment management by working with one vendor for our entire database infrastructure,” said Antonio Valceni de Oliveira Tome, technical coordinator, AB Concessões.

Implementation Process

The company completed the Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 deployment on schedule, including testing and data migration.

“The support we received from the Oracle team at the onset of implementation was crucial for a successful deployment, starting with its help in choosing solutions targeted to our business needs, then referring a partner, and the subsequent follow up at each phase of the project,” said Antonio Valceni de Oliveira Tome, technical coordinator, AB Concessões.

Partner

“Oracle partner DBA Corp kept to our set schedule, and its experts’ involvement was a key factor to the success of our Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 deployment. Furthermore, Oracle Database Appliance provided a high level of compliance with our business processes,” said Antonio Valceni de Oliveira Tome, technical coordinator, AB Concessões.
