Deployment country


Formed in 2010 as the result of a merger between EDB and ErgoGroup, EVRY is one of the largest IT services companies in the Nordic region. Headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and with 10,000 employees across Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, the company offers consulting, infrastructure and implementation services to more than 14,000 public and private sector clients.

Business need
EVRY wanted to maintain its position as a leading provider of managed services to large financial services companies in Norway—but processing resources in its mainframe environment were running low.

Replaced its existing mainframes with three IBM® zEnterprise® EC12 servers running Linux, IBM z/OS®, IBM DB2® for z/OS, IBM CICS® and IBM IMS® software, supporting 50 production LPARs for clients.

Enables EVRY to meet ten percent year-on-year growth in transaction volumes; handles peaks in demand of up to 38,500 MIPS; non-disruptive capacity-on-demand feature ensures solution is future-ready.
