Case Study

About BPTP

In the eight years since its founding, BPTP has established itself as a leader in real estate in the National Capital Region (NCR) of India. Committed to achieving excellence in architecture, design, aesthetics and infrastructure, BPTP has redefined the concept of viable realty. The company’s mega township, Parklands in Faridabad, is now setting new benchmarks in luxury housing. BPTP has an impressive portfolio of contemporary commercial, residential, IT park and retail developments.

The business need

BPTP is spearheading the growth and expansion of the real estate sector. As a result, its SAP infrastructure was running at near 100% utilization. The firm needed a solution to adapt to its growing needs - a solution that could run seamlessly in a virtualised environment and yet be able to meet performance needs for the next five years.

IBM - the chosen technology partner

While other vendors were pitching various components and selling on price, IBM took a different approach.

We offered IBM PureSystems™ technology:

  • Best-of-breed, single-chassis solution featuring high-end x86 nodes
  • High-performance components for networking with 10GB scalable switches
  • Storage with the IBM Storwize® V7000
  • Open Networking Standards – with the benefits of IEEE 802.1qbg like Edge Virtual Bridging, as opposed to the proprietary lock-in solutions offered by other vendors

Unique to the IBM solution is the ability to offer everything virtualised - servers, storage and networking - all managed centrally from a single console called the Flex System Manager. The PureSystems solution is tuned for optimised performance and scales seamlessly in response to changing workloads.

Benefits of the solution

PureSystems has helped BPTP in many ways:

  • A more robust environment for the company’s SAP modules and processes
  • New generation of Intel CPUs which provide faster response time
  • Productivity enhancement
  • Better end-user experience across their SAP environment
  • Enhanced management capabilities with FSM, CMM for NW, storage, nodes etc.

Additionally. IBM Global Financing provided the opportunity for BPTP to lease the new system at very attractive interest rates. By selecting this financing option, BPTP is now positioned for lower total-ownership-risk and faster ROI.

With a strong technology backing, BPTP is geared to spearhead the growth and expansion of the real estate sector by launching new innovative projects in market and on time.

The IBM difference

The IBM PureSystems’ expert integrated computing platform brings together the – flexibility of a general purpose system, the elasticity of cloud and the simplicity of an appliance – all tuned to the client’s workload. PureSystems fundamentally changes the experience and economics of IT. In the face of strong competition from other IT majors, the IBM field team won the day with our ability to truly understand and address the real issues surrounding virtualisation on SAP and by offering a powerful alternative solution based on PureSystems technology.
