A 2010 IT infrastructure review concluded that the standard JD Edwards purge and archive tools would not meet their needs, and the IT team did not have capacity to build a solution in-house.
Arcor had determined that the performance of their ERP system was negatively impacted by large data volumes. They knew that the standard JD Edwards tools were insufficient for the sheer scale of their purge and archive needs. Arcor investigated the challenge, and decided that the development of a custom tool by the internal team was too time consuming.
