Hermes picks DMExpress

Home delivery specialist Hermes has selected Syncsort DMExpress as its data integration technology corporate standard.

Using DMExpress, Hermes has been able to transfer business-critical data between the company’s Oracle and IBM DB2 database instances. Performance is critical for this data transfer, and Hermes was able to complete this with an 8x improvement over its previous approach.

It also allows Hermes to code and transfer data automatically. Previously, it would frequently take the company up to two days of transaction development time to be able to move data from its point-of-sale system. This development time has now been cut to one hour.
