Reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) by 20-30 percent
With the worldwide recession placing pressure on banks to reduce costs, the company’s CIO was concerned with total cost of hardware, software and administration supporting the company’s online banking applications. The bank’s web applications ran on Oracle Database and Sun servers and it found that the annual fees were costly and administration time consuming.
With its migration to IBM DB2 on IBM Power Systems, JSC Rietumu Banka reduced the total cost of ownership for its online banking infrastructure and dramatically improved query performance and data availability. On average, user queries are now executed up to 3 times faster, with some queries completed up to 30 times faster (for example, some queries that before took 30 seconds now take less than one second). During the migration process, the bank reported an out-of-the-box compatibility rate of more than 90 percent.
Reduced total cost of ownership by 20-30 percent; Achieved 3-30 times faster query performance; Improved data availability by 200 percent
