Customer Success Story – Dometic: Seamlessly Moving from IBM i V5R4 on-premise to the Cloud

Dometic is a global manufacturing and sales company that provides a variety of products for the mobile living market so they can enjoy life when they’re not home. When Dometic’s Americas region faced an aging IBM i infrastructure, a discontinued IBM i V5R4 O/S, and the need to integrate a newly acquired company into its IBM i environment, they decided to upgrade and move to an IBM i Cloud. They chose Connectria and couldn’t be happier.

Here’s what Greg Tipton, CIO Americas from Dometic has to say:

“Our total experience in moving from an on-premise V5R4 system to the IBM i 7.2 Cloud was spectacular. Honestly, it could not have gone any better. And the response from our end users was an immediate, noticeable improvement.”

“Ongoing, we feel we get a great value for what we’re paying. Everything that Connectria provides is well worth the money we’ve spent.”

“We created a business model which compared purchasing the same IBM i 7.2 configurations and running on-premise versus hosting in the cloud, and the payback in the cloud was less than 18 months.”
