Oracle to IBM: A Customer's Journey - D+H Webcast
An InformationWeek webcast With over 4500 employees in over 20 locations, D+H offers a diverse set of solutions including cheque programs, lending solutions, student loan processing, and registry services. In this webcast, D+H will share the key differences between the IBM and Oracle solution offerings, customer experiences, and the tangible business benefits of their evolving relationship with IBM, from vendor & customer to strategic partner.
For example, D+H will share how they were motivated by a 2000% increase in the price of Oracle's SunONE Application server to make the move away from Oracle. In their extensive evaluation of WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and JBOSS, WAS won because of the superior support and functionality of the IBM offering, along with the familiarity of IBM in the marketplace. D+H selected IBM DataPower for its simplicity, programmability, relative cost, performance, security, SOAP/REST and industry standards support, and proven features.
As Paul Lewis, D+H's VP of Technology & Architecture states, "Beyond functionality and cost, support for our mission critical systems was a key factor in our decision making process and IBM has demonstrated a long term commitment to the technologies we're building our business on."
