The Natuzzi Group is a leading manufacturer of furniture and leather upholstery. Natuzzi had consistently increased sales through continuous global expansion. As a result, it had also increased the volume of data handled by its SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. To improve performance and manage data growth more efficiently, the Natuzzi Group implemented Microsoft SQL Server 2008 with its mission-critical SAP ERP system. It deployed the solution quickly with minimal changes to existing infrastructure and used data compression technology to reduce backup time by 50 percent and database size by 79 percent. As a result, the company plans to deploy the solution at more locations.
