CP SQL 8.4 New Feature – System – Data on Demand
CounterPoint SQL will support the ability to provide "data on demand" to Remote servers and offline workstations on an as needed basis. This new architecture means that Remote servers (in Multi-Site environments) and offline workstations, will be able to access up-to-date inventory, customer, and sales data that resides on their "parent" servers in real time. Only the essential data that is required to perform routine operations will continue to be stored on each Remote server or offline workstation, significantly reducing the size of each local database and the amount of data that needs to be replicated.
The data being replicated remains under the merchant’s control, but will have the capability to provide more data "on demand" as the need expands. Radiant will encourage reducing the amount of redundant data replicated to Remote servers as the software develops.
The initial V8.4.0 release also includes Zoom improvements that were made possible by the new Data on Demand architecture. In subsequent releases and Service Packs, additional features will be introduced that take full advantage of this new architecture.
These new features may require some adjustments to your existing hardware and Internet bandwidth. Please contact the CCS Retail Systems Support Department for details of these requirements.
