Sainsbury's Safeguards Supply Chain for Over 800 Stores and 100,000 Online Shoppers a Week With CA Spectrum and CA NSM
Sainsbury's online operations and supply chain rely on the availability of its IT infrastructure. Although the company's network is managed externally, the company has retained control of its DMZ (de-militarised zone), which provides a secure link to external systems and the Internet. A problem within this environment could impact the online shopping experience as well as product stock levels. Sainsbury's implemented CA Spectrum Infrastructure Manager to monitor 1,800 devices within its DMZ and wider network. The solution provides intelligent alerts to problems and integrates with CA NSM, which is used to monitor 1,200 servers within the production environment and centrally consolidate system alerts.
