Davis + Henderson Corporation
Davis + Henderson Corporation (D+H) has been a trusted partner to the financial services industry for over 130 years. Today, D+H offers a broad range of technology and technology-based solutions to financial institutions across North America, including commercial and mortgage lending technology, student lending services, collateral registration and recovery services, and payments solutions. Headquartered in Toronto, D+H employs approximately 4,500 people. The company has been publicly listed since 2001.
After acquiring several companies, D+H needed to reduce the operating expenses associated with redundant IT systems. It began to look at application servers, ESB solutions and databases.
After performing several POCs, D+H chose IBM WebSphere Application Server software, IBM WebSphere DataPower appliances and the IBM DB2 database.
In addition to cutting costs, D+H has seen 20 to 40 percent performance increases and can now deploy new workloads in hours versus the five days required in the past.
