Janata Sahakari Bank wanted to ensure 24/7 uninterrupted service for core banking customers and conduct real-time synchronous data replication. The bank achieved both the objectives with IBM DB2 Version 9.5.
To achieve its business objectives, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) faced a technical upgrade of its SAP R/3 Enterprise system to SAP ERP 6.0. Completing this upgrade would require the company either to upgrade its existing Oracle database and purchase extra Oracle licenses, or to move to a different database platform. The CCBCC team decided it was time to derive more performance from the business-critical SAP applications, while driving down hardware and software costs. Instead of upgrading Oracle, the team decided to introduce IBM DB2.
Reliance moved its most critical business applications, including its self-service portal, from Oracle Database on Sun servers to IBMDB2 on IBM Power 570servers. DB2 offered better performance, availability and scalability with a lower total cost of ownership.
In the intensely competitive auto components marketplace, manufacturer SKH Metals wanted to shift from the old style of supplier relationship towards a just-in-time partnership with the customers it supplies. To do so, SKH Metals needed to gain an end-to-end view of its sales order, manufacturing, stock control and logistics chain. Existing systems were not capable of supporting this strategy, and SKH Metals needed to switch to an integrated ERP solution to allow the company to take the next steps in its business evolution.
