The Missiles and Fire Control (MFC) business area of Lockheed Martin creates specialized products that range from missile defense systems and precision engagement weapons to heat rejection panels that protect those living aboard the International Space Station. MFC has long used SAP software for its enterprise resource planning processes. Since migrating its SAP infrastructure from a UNIX/Oracle solution to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, the company reports enhanced performance and reliability as well as lower total cost of ownership, including a significant savings in software and maintenance costs. The company's internal testing has found that the new data compression features reduce database size by total 74 percent while enhancing performance of some runs by more than 80 percent.
