Fast-Growing Manufacturer Uses Mainline/IBM PureFlex to Triple IT New Project Productivity
A manufacturer based in the northeastern U.S. employs hundreds worldwide with locations in Europe and Asia. Their challenge is to upgrade IT infrastructure to support critical new ERP, MES and CRM applications, use virtualization to enhance agility and service levels and simplify and streamline IT management and support. They chose IBM PureFlex Standard, with Mainline Integration and Testing Services and Mainline VMware Virtualization QuickStart service. The results of deploying IBM were new servers/services deployed in hours instead of days/weeks, 100 percent uptime with virtually no management time required to date and three major new applications deployed and growth accommodated without adding IT staff.
