Executive Summary

Pentair Technical Products is a provider of worldwide product and service solutions for enclosing, protecting, and cooling electrical and electronic systems. The company uses a Product Life-cycle Management (PLM) system to manage its product-development process, engineering change orders, computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, and marketing data supporting more than 1,500 employees worldwide. In addition to looking for a system that was easier to support with internal resources, they wanted to increase their worldwide capabilities related to PLM. They didn't have the database system performance that was needed to reasonably share drawings etc with employees around the world. So the company decided to set up a clustered environment with two servers running SQL Server working in collaboration with consultants from Dassault Syst?mes and Microsoft Services. The SQL Server database matched or outperformed the Oracle database in nearly every scenario, so they opted to implement SQL Server running the Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition operating system. Pentair Technical Products now has an enterprise PLM solution with the performance necessary for global activities, and has lowered its total costs and the complexity of its IT environment. They managed cost savings and added business value, faster performance and enhanced ability to serve customers. They are providing better service to global customers because of faster access to companywide information leading to shorter project cycles and fewer errors.
