The Challenge

Today’s businesses are almost totally dependent upon the availability of their IT systems, and the integrity of their data. The consequences of a corrupted and unrecoverable database hardly bear thinking about, but Net@Work can’t afford to ignore this when designing a total solution for their customers.

The Solution

For many of their Sage 300 clients, it has become standard practice for Net@Work to integrate Orchid’s Process Scheduler into their implementation. They use it to manage tasks such as daily database dumps, Data Integrity checks, and automation of Day End processing.

The Result

One client had a major hardware failure in the middle of a data backup routine, resulting in an SQL database corruption. Fortunately, Process Scheduler had previously triggered a data dump, from which they were able to restore the database. The business was back up and running as soon as the server was repaired. Catastrophe avoided!

“Automated scheduling of Data Integrity and Day End processing is essential for many of our clients.”

Standard Sage 300 data structures and functionality didn’t support some of WMI's business requirements when it came to logging, validation and custom data. Extender came to the rescue.
