Evolving to Mission Critical

When BP began to deploy IntraNect XL our System wasn't in the center of attention. Now it is! Why?

I suppose this is true for many industries and it might be not an individual phenomena. Many Software Products are facing pretty different requirements, when it comes to robustness and availability nowadays. The original design might have just called for a few daily collections of POS Data and 15 years later you find yourself in  the center of a fairly complex logistic chain. Welcome to non-linear systems!

Confronted with almost realtime Features your design architecture needs to be robust and flexible  - a tough stretch.

IntraNect XL is certainly adapting to the new requests - not always easily -  but it is worth mentioning that the expectations have changed quite dramatic.
