Nacan Synchronizes SAP Orders in Real-time with Attunity Stream

Real-Time Change Data Capture Reduces Costs and Increases Efficiencies in Supply Chain Management

Attunity, Ltd., a leading provider of enterprise data integration software, announced today that Nacan Products Ltd. has deployed Attunity Stream™ to synchronise online business transactions between its parent company’s information systems. Attunity Stream, the company’s real-time change data capture solution allows Nacan to execute supply chain interactions more efficiently by capturing, routing and converting purchase orders to new sales orders.

Nacan Products is the Canadian subsidiary of National Starch and Chemical Company, a global leader in natural and synthetic polymer technology for adhesives, resins and specialty chemicals, electronic materials and food and industrial starches. Nacan purchases manufactured starch and polymer materials from National’s plants in the U.S. and sells them throughout Canada. Nacan supplies ingredients and materials for many products used in the home, office or plant.

To improve process efficiencies and reduce costs, Nacan was looking to streamline and synchronise purchase order and sales order information between its BPCS ERP system and corporate SAP system. Nacan implemented Attunity Stream to capture new purchase orders from BPCS and automatically route them in real-time to SAP using an integration process in BizTalk Server 2004. Once changes are delivered to SAP, a sales order is created and a confirmation is returned in real-time.

"Attunity’s products have allowed us to build an event-driven and efficient solution that integrates our order management process in real-time," said Rob Hollett, Business Systems Analyst at Nacan Products. "The combined solution with BizTalk Server worked seamlessly, and we’re now reaping the benefits with reduced processing costs. This helped us deliver a cutting-edge solution to our supply chain management challenge."

"We are seeing ever-increasing market demand for real-time enterprise data integration," said Dan Sapir, vice president, worldwide marketing at Attunity. "Companies like Nacan are at the forefront of this trend. They are realising significant benefits from moving to a real-time model. Attunity is uniquely positioned as the provider that can deliver change data capture across the entire range of enterprise data sources."
