Sao Paulo, Brazil - July 4, 2007 - TORCH Technologies Inc. has just completed its 9th Zim to Oracle migration project in Brazil.

The J Safra Bank database, containing more than 20 Gb of data and 350 tables was migrated to a client-server environment using the TMS - Torch Migration Suite - in 4 weeks. The client side is the existing Credit System (Sicred) Zim application that was used in the bank for more than 10 years.

The application was fine, but the the bank could not rely on it due to the continuous dead locks that occurred daily. The bank has a long story of Zim use and also a large number of Zim programers that could not be forgotten.

The first results were absolutely outstanding. A batch program that usually took more than 2 hours to be executed was reduced to 32 minutes.
