TVB Unleashes Full Potential of SAP S/4HANA on IBM Power Systems
Since 1976, TVB has
been the world's largest producer of Chinese programs, creating its shows from
the biggest commercial television production and operation centre in Asia.
Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) needed to deploy SAP S/4HANA Finance as part of the company’s digital transformation. The In-memory platform would allow TVB to process high volumes of operational and transactional data in real-time.
Scalability and flexibility were TVB’s two key considerations for SAP S/4HANA deployment. They required a solution that could cater for future growth and easy upgrade.
TVB conducted a selection process between IBM Power- and Intel x86-based platforms
IBM Power was chosen as it is the first
platform that supports SAP HANA Tailored Data Centre Integration (TDI). It
allows TVB to easy integrate SAP HANA with existing infrastructure and
consolidate non-SAP workloads into one machine.
Unlike the inflexible x86-based appliance approach, TDI and PowerVM
enable TVB to virtualise multiple production environments into one single
IBM Power System. They also provide flexibility and keep the cost down for
future SAP S/4HANA module deployment.
IBM Power is designed for data-driven workloads with 200%
performance boost than Intel x86 on a per core basis. Built for in-memory
real-time analytics applications, IBM Power also provides substantial
performance gain for SAP S/4HANA.
