IFS reports the new release of IFS Instant Replication, a unique solution for rapid replication of data between offshore rigs or vessels and onshore facilities. The solution replicates documents and transactional data in maintenance and logistics processes via satellite.
IFS Instant Replication leverages standard functionality within the industry solution IFS Applications for offshore service to replicate and transfer business data and documents between offshore and onshore systems. The main enhancement has been to increase the speed of replication dramatically. Tests carried out in collaboration with customers reveal a dramatic reduction in replication time, compared to other legacy solutions; from over 24 hours to mere minutes or even seconds, depending on the network quality and information load.
This means that the onshore operation always has updated information for increased precision in decision-making processes. The solution replicates data on an application level, rather than on a database level, which ensures outstanding data quality control and advanced error management. The solution covers business-critical data in logistics, maintenance and documents.
