PLATFORMS: The Public Service Commission (PSC) of Canada stores job applicant information centrally and regionally (updated daily) on HP9000/800 servers utilizing an HP-UX R10.01 operating system.

PROBLEM SOLVED: The PSC is responsible for external personnel recruiting for the Government of Canada. To handle the incredible cultural diversity, volume of applicants and expansive geography of Canada, the PSC turned to regional OpenIngres databases spread throughout Canada to store job applicant information. In addition, the PSC maintains a centralized warehouse of information at its headquarters location in Ottawa. Headquarters information is updated daily from the regional sites and to ensure up-to-date information is available to all regions, the PSC utilizes a dynamic replication facility to synchronize individual applicant information from one region to another.
