Established in 1950, Bandai Co., Ltd. is one of the world’s largest toy manufacturers and video game providers. As a core subsidiary company of Bandai Namco Group, Bandai has expanded its business from producing simple doll products to a wide range of toys and hobby products including original character toys for boys and girls, plastic models kits, candy toys, confectionaries and food, vending machine toy capsules, trading cards, apparel, and lifestyle goods. Bandai also sells various popular character products and apparel, such as Dragon Ball and Gundam, to adult buyers via the Bandai Premium shopping site.
The test result demonstrated the extreme performance and scalability of Oracle Exadata Database Machine, giving us confidence that it would support our increasing sales volume and global expansion in the future.
After conducting testing for various business processes in the same environment as the production system, Bandai implemented Oracle Exadata for its ecommerce site and completed the project in just five months.
“We have successfully installed and gone live with the new platform, thanks to a pre-configured and pre-tested Oracle Exadata. There was no drop in performance even with data encryption,” said Go Taguchi, manager, E-commerce platform team, online marketing strategy office, Bandai Co., Ltd.
Bandai has been working with Oracle Partner, Tenik Co., Ltd. over the years to provide support for its ecommerce platform. Tenik assisted Bandai to implement Oracle Exadata and involved in the design, application development, and daily operation of the new system.
“With Tenik’s rich knowledge and experience with Oracle products, we completed the project on time and enabled us to reap the benefits of Oracle Exadata,” Takahara said.
