PARIS System Optimisation

System Optimisation

PARIS System Optimisation is a set of tools and services designed to maintain system performance through creation of an historical database, allowing old transactions to be removed from the live system.

The historical database is then used for searching and reporting against those older records, removing processing demands from the live system.

PARIS sites typically store huge volumes of transaction data within the PARIS database. This data consists of financial transactions captured through PARIS payments modules and file imports. This ever-increasing volume of transactions will, over time, impact the performance and customer experience of PARIS. The requirement for more and more database space also increases demands on local infrastructure and impacts performance of regular housekeeping tasks.

Demands of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and compliance with Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA DSS) also mean PARIS updates must be issued on a regular basis. The process of installing new versions of PARIS can also be impacted by excessive data volumes resulting in increased downtime and disruption to payments collection and processing during upgrades.
