At De Lijn, we recently made the choice to upgrade to IBM POWER9. Seen the increasing needs and demands from the business, we had to reflect on how to optimize the performance of critical applications and workloads in the future. It is, for instance, crucial for us to have a maximum continuity and performance of our customers subscriptions website. 

Furthermore, the fact that we have separate locations for our production and backup infrastructure, protecting us for site-outage is crucial; This foundational infrastructure project that we have built together with Econocom experts, is an important step in supporting our overall digital transformation

Save up to 50% of TCO

You can lower your TCO over 5 years while increasing reliability, scalability and performance by factor 2 by moving your critical workloads (such as Oracle, SAP Hana, AI, …) to IBM Power9. 

On top of that, Power9 provides more than 2x greater performance, thanks to available dock speeds and bigger memory bandwidth.

Your organization is embracing more and more business critical workloads with real-time mass data, enabling AI, big data and analytics?

Mid May we received the Server Solutions Award 2018 during the IBM Night of the Stars. 

Besides, did you know that Econocom has just been ranked number 1 in overall customer satisfaction for IT outsourcing services by Whitelane Research?

The break-even point is usually achieved in less than 15 months, whilst x86 costs continue to rise each year due to costly Oracle software licensing, maintenance per socket and x86 hardware costs. 

If you consolidate your SAP R3 and SAP Hana environment for production, testing & development, prototyping on the same and single Power9 box, you can expect the same results for TCO and ROI, as you need far less servers than for the same implementation on x86.
