Belarusian Railway is the leading transportation system in Belarus. The company controls 63% of in-country cargo turnover and 33% of passenger miles.
The railway couldn’t handle autogrowth of databases that led to system overloading. AtlantConsult helped to optimize dataflows and IT infrastructure throughout the company.
At the first stage, AtlantConsult took 2 steps: archived old databases and identified processes concerned reporting, tracking data lifespan and defining files importance. Then, the programming team redesigned the system in a way that data would be automatically deleted or archived in conformity with defined rules and useful time. Old unfinished dataflows were processed according to the new algorithms.
The system began to log every business transactions and data entering in setting tables.
To help the company avoid loss of working hours, engineers set up an option to run archiving sessions in a background.
AtlantConsult developed guidelines on how to take out, analyze and archive users’ activity logs. Afterward project team trained the staff.
