  • (1888PressRelease) November 09, 2011 - DEDHAM, Mass. - insiderPROFILES magazine announces a new article, "Enbridge Gas Distribution Compresses System Refresh from 4 Weeks to 7 Days" by Managing Editor Lauren Bonneau, now available in its October-December 2011 issue.

    With almost two million industrial, commercial, and residential customers, Enbridge Gas Distribution, Canada's largest natural gas utility company, maintains a vast pool of customer data that grows by 10 to 12 gigabytes per business day. The company quickly saw that it was reaching a point at which it would be almost impossible to perform a system refresh.

    This case study explores how Enbridge dissected this problem and found a solution that would speed up its system refresh process. It discusses how Enbridge chose and implemented new automation software, the Cisco Tidal Intelligent Automation for SAP application, to improve its customer data availability, validation, and testing.

    Readers of this article will learn how Enbridge leveraged its new automation software to reduce the refresh time of its SAP production data from a month down to about a week. "Replacing repetitive, manual, boring, nobody-wants-to-do-them tasks with a product that does it reliably for you all the time is invaluable," says Liliana Wilson, Database Architect at Enbridge.

    The article can also be found on page 37 of the October-December 2011 issue of insiderPROFILES, both in print and via the insiderPROFILES mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
