“ We’re confident that with IBM, we are investing in a reliable and innovative solution that we can rely on for the long term. ”
Alaa Pasha, president and chief executive officer, MacromatiX
Founded in 1999, MacromatiX is a leading provider of end-to-end retail management software solutions for global retailers -- including restaurants and convenience stores -- that need help managing the many layers of their operations.
MacromatiX needed an infrastructure solution that would improve availability and transaction speeds for its cloud services amid exponential business growth.
MacromatiX worked with IBM and IBM Premier Business Partner Corus360 to implement IBM BladeCenter® HS22 and HS22V servers, and IBM System x® 3650 M3 and x3550 M3 servers all with intelligent Intel® Xeon® processors.
The IBM solution provides a flexible, scalable virtualized environment that processes transactions 20 percent faster and increases availability to near 100 percent.
