The Challenge

To capitalize on sales opportunities through deeper insights into customer demand, CCBCC needed to crunch more data without increasing time-to-insight, while meeting existing service-level agreements.

With so much additional sales forecasting data to process, CCBCC's nightly batch processes began to overrun—threatening to reduce the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of its supply chain processes, and to cause the IT team to miss its SLA (service-level agreement) targets.

The Customer
About The Customer
Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) is the largest independent producer and distributor of Coca-Cola Company products in the United States. 
The Solution

To get the full benefits of its upgraded supply chain forecasting application and to ensure adherence to SLA requirements, CCBCC needed to reduce the time required to complete its nightly batch runs.

Using IBM FlashSystem (data storage system), the company saw a significant drop in the time it took to run batch workloads. Based on this positive experience, they were convinced that IBM FlashSystem had the balance of performance and price that is needed to meet our goal.
