Facts on WILO SE
WILO SE was founded 140 years ago and since then, WILO set always continuously new standards in pumps and pump systems, heating, refrigeration, air conditioning systems and in water supply and sanitation. Technical progress and groundbreaking innovations by visionary ideas have tradition in the company‘s long history. With over 60 subsidiaries worldwide and more than 6,700 dedicated and innovative employees WILO generates annual revenues of over 1 billion euro.
Not without reason, WILO is a worldwide guarantee for superior quality, engineering, innovation, user friendliness and efficiency.
Due to extensive data growth and increasing numbers of site visitors, WILO required an optimized solution for its online product catalog.
Especially for non-trivial products which characteristics are variable depending on other attributes and values, the existing online catalog soon reached its performance limit. The reason for the limitation was found in the SQL-based queries of the used database model.
This performance loss - intensified by the growing traffic - had a direct impact on the usability, the performance and the success of the online catalog.
In order to fix this problem, the newly developed online catalog engine infuniq®web V.4.0 was implemented in a pilot project by the infuniq systems partner communicode.
infuniq®web is the catalog expansion module inside the infuniq® product family, but also an independent web application which can be used in combination to other third party PIM-systems. Thus, all product information can still be used from the existing PIM system.
For further improving online performance the newly established NoSQL database architecture deliberately avoids the benefits of modern relational databases.
Consistency is ensured by redundancy and ultimately by the PIM system in which the data is managed fundamentally.
The infuniq®web version 4.0 does not use the slower SQL as a query language and allows free data structures by using NoSQL.
In this way, much less data views on multiple database tables - the so-called „queries“ - are required to display product information. This becomes clear with large amounts of data and is tangibly felt in the performance and the response time of the catalog.
The used database architecture enables flexible scalability and high reliability for future requirements.
Innovation in online communication: The online catalog engine works independently from your PIM system and allows tangible performance gain due NoSQL.
infuniq systems is placed in Hall 7,Booth B03 7.0 in the topic-area "dynamic publishing" at the drupa innovation parc.
infuniq®web enables the customized and faceted product communication on the Internet.
