With its 39-year history in the State of Paraná, more than 10,000 employees, and 36 stores in 14 cities, Condor Super Center is the seventh-largest supermarket chain in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Supermarket Association.
The supermarket and hypermarket chain sells more than 40,000 items and services to approximately 3 million clients per month. It won, for six consecutive years, the Ímpar Awards from RIC-TV (a Parana State TV broadcast company) and was honored by Ibope Intelligence (the Brazilian Institute of Public Opinion and Statistics), which named it as the preferred supermarket in Paraná.
"After testing IBM DB2, we chose Oracle Database because it is reliable and robust. We were confident that we could install it without rewriting our applications, allowing us to preserve our IT investment," said Vladimir Torres Manriquez, IT director, Condor Super Center.
"We conducted our Oracle Database migration in stages to ensure business continuity. We were able to complete the project smoothly and without disruption to internal users. In addition, by using Oracle Tuning Pack, we shortened system response times and expanded the business with the same infrastructure," Manriquez said.
"Oracle Platinum Partner IT7 Sistemas supported the Oracle Database migration project from the onset. We were very pleased throughout deployment because IT7 Sistemas’ professionals understood our business demands as well as the Oracle solutions we’d acquired,” Manriquez said.
