This global group of companies offers a complete range of financial and nonfinancial products and services in over 30 countries around the world. One of the company's most valuable assets supporting business agility is the database management staff. Yet these expert, talented people have been tied up performing routine maintenance tasks on the company's 700 IMS databases and have been unable to focus on system evolution and improvement. To address these concerns, the financial services company turned to BMC MAXM Database Advisor for IMS. This product collects and analyzes IMS statistics and provides recommendations for system and storage allocation and database tuning, thus saving the staff hours of effort.
