DEDHAM, Mass., May 1, 2012 — Due to a rapidly growing database, the IT team at McCormick & Co., Inc. became concerned about the time required to back up the company’s database — in some cases, it took as long as 24 hours. The team identified data compression as the solution to its problem, and used a tool provided to them by SAP to complete the project. This article shares how McCormick dramatically reduced its database size without sacrificing performance.
