  • Improved performance for payroll processing
  • Platinum support and proactive monitoring of database hardware
  • Batch processing performance improvement.
  • Platinum support patching has suffered lately in performance of the patching event
  • Cost for additional applications such as RAC
  • Cost of the hardware and support
  • Database backups reduced to 20 minutes from 5 hours
  • Performance in almost all database-intensive transactions.
  • Payroll processing generally reduced finish time by 4 hours per payroll Wednesday, giving us more problem resolution time.

Performance improvement in our payroll processing. Payroll calcs going from 25 minutes to 6 minutes was a game changer for us, as well as backups going from 5 hours to 20 minutes.
This allows us to do testing and then restore the database and test again.
