PARK RIDGE, NJ -- July 20, 2000 – Priceline.com has selected CTB Consulting to review
their current order processing system and make recommendations for the
development of the “order processing system of the future”, one that will accommodate
the exponential growth of their web-based business.
Current site transaction volumes at priceline.com are
among the highest in the world, and are expected to expand more than ten times
within the next year. This phenomenal growth is due to the growing popularity
of Priceline’s existing offerings, as well as a continuing stream of new
products coming on-line.
CTB Consulting will analyze and model the performance
of the existing on-line order processing system that is based on Microsoft’s
Transaction Server, Message Queue, and Oracle. CTB Consulting will outline and
help to implement the systems architecture necessary to accommodate the future
system growth and management requirements. The re-designed system will ensure
that Priceline’s service, security, and performance levels continue to improve
as their transaction volumes experience explosive growth.
Priceline.com engaged CTB Consulting due to CTB's history of success with mission critical,
high-volume On Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) at other companies.
