Migros Expands Its Adoption Of ORSYP Solutions For IT Workload Automation Leading Swiss retail chain harmonizes IT processes and capacity management
ESCHBORN, Germany and BOSTON, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ORSYP, a leading provider of IT Operations Management solutions, today announced that Migros, the largest retail chain in Switzerland, is expanding its adoption of ORSYP solutions for IT workload automation and replacing legacy systems from CA Technologies. Migros will benefit from a unified platform of ORSYP's Dollar Universe as the centralized job scheduling solution, especially for the automation of its business critical SAP system clusters.
ORSYP Dollar Universe unifies the automation of all logistical IT transactions across a multitude of business applications, technologies and operating systems running in geographically remote datacenters across Migros' cooperative structure. Dollar Universe provides Migros with a centralized view, from event-based management through to a complete process-oriented management of the entire IT infrastructure and applications.
The benefits of the "one job scheduler" strategy: optimization, end-to-end visibility and continuous real-time management of all IT processes, appropriate reporting covering the entire production environment as well as risk mitigation during disaster recovery.
"We are delighted to expand our long-term relationship with ORSYP to set the course for the future," explains Patrick Mosberger, head of infrastructure services at Migros. "In particular, ORSYP's successful track record as well as their unique peer-to-peer architecture matches with our strategy of the 'one job scheduler' – this provides a significant contribution to consolidating our IT infrastructure. Finally, Dollar Universe enables us both to achieve a higher degree in our organizational structure and stability of the IT operations at the same time."
We are happy about the renewed sign of trust from Migros as well as their willingness to go towards into a joint future," Steffen Mandt, General Manager ORSYP DACH comments. "We are engaged with Migros in a long-term and strategic partnership and Migros replacing CA Technology's legacy systems proves again that ORSYP's modern solution set is rightly leading the area of workload automation."
