Product Key Customer Benefits
- Short implementation cycle
- Environment that is transparent to ENOVIA SMARTEAM users
- Reliable, up-to-date data
- Increased enterprise productivity, through global work environment with local feel and identical data at all sites
- Ability of users to work independently and continuously at each site regardless of the network connection between sites for quicker turnaround time
- Local availability of data on LAN increases overall throughput
- Increased end-user productivity, due to transparent environment
- Reduced network bottlenecks, due to traffic-reducing replication approach
- Reduced network maintenance increases ROI
Existing WAN-based synchronous replication solutions, which require having all sites online at all times, have proven extremely inefficient: System intervention is commonly required for user authentication, maintaining site security, and data encryption; Bandwidths are not large enough to cope with the large volumes of data transfer, resulting in costly slowing of the product lifecycle; and most importantly, a single WAN connection failure at one site paralyzes all other sites in the network.
SMARTEAM Multi-site overcomes all these challenges, providing immediate ROI and dramatically speeding time-to-market. SMARTEAM Multi-site leverages Oracle replication and synchronization capabilities to enable work on the same database from different physical locations, without the need to maintain a steady, open connection between them. The database from the original site is copied to each of the sites where the data is to be shared. Periodic synchronization of the databases ensures all of them are identical, thus maintaining data integrity.
SMARTEAM Multi-site supports replication and synchronization of files that are stored in vaults. When replication takes place, files are encrypted and compressed automatically, and are decompressed when reaching their destination, reducing traffic over the WAN to speed up productivity and design time, and providing local access to files originated in remote locations.
