EMC announced that Ticket Servicos, an Accor company located in Brazil that processes government-mandated meal voucher services, is implementing EMC DatabaseXtender software. Ticket Servicos will use DatabaseXtender to migrate and archive Oracle data in its tiered storage system.
In Brazil, the law requires that companies provide meals to employees during work hours. Ticket coordinates meal vouchers between company employees and a network of authorized stores and restaurants. In addition, Ticket provides organizations with food and transportation vouchers for employees to buy food from markets and fuel their cars at gas stations for travel to work.
