Case Study January 10, 2019

Finserv Company

Challenge

The customer had a multi-million dollar license renewal for Oracle Exadata that they wanted to avoid, and a short timeline until the renewal date. Being that revenue was generated primarily through that data in their Data Warehouse (running on Oracle Exadata), downtime and data loss were not acceptable. Moreover, complex integrations with 3rd parties and back-office systems made migration planning difficult.

Solution

WSM was initially brought in to migrate only half of the server environment (650 servers) due to migration costs. WSM took into account the license renewal data and system complexity to create move groups that minimized risk and did not introduce latency. After careful consideration, AWS Oracle RDS, being that it was both PCI & FISMA Compliant, was chosen as the platform to replace Oracle Exadata.

Results

WSM astounded the client with successfully migrated critical systems ahead of license renewals; on time and under budget resulting in multi-million-dollar savings for the client. The client was so pleased with the migration, WSM was selected to move an additional 650 servers. As part of the migration, WSM improved automation and IT Governance and increased the customer’s DevOps maturity.
