Global IT giant HP wanted to cut its computing expenses while still maintaining near-total uptime for its decision-support applications. To do this, the company needed a strategy to standardize critical applications enterprise-wide and consolidate all of its data centers around the world into three sites in the southern US.

Challenges

  • Migrate more than 75 applications to new data center
  • Migrate databases containing approximately 40 terabytes of data
  • Complete data integration project on a tight timeline
Since 2000, PowerCenter has been the data integration standard for our decision support applications. The Informatica solution has been the trump card as we have implemented a massive migration of these applications. Our Integration Competency Center is built to support 400 uses of Informatica. Moreover, we will soon have 99.9% availability, essential for such mission-critical applications.
