NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- GigaSpaces, the leading provider of in-memory computing technology that drives enterprise digital transformation and powers innovation, announced today that the company has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2021 Digital Transformation & Operational Excellence (DTOE) Awards in two categories for its Smart Cache offering. The two categories are Best Achievement in an IT Infrastructure & Cloud Program and Best Achievement in Operational Excellence to Deliver an Outstanding Customer Experience Excellence.
The DTOE Awards showcase the most outstanding global achievements in business and digital transformation as well as innovation and operational excellence. The awards are judged by an independent panel of leading members in this community who evaluate submissions' strategic relevance, customer benefit, implementation and more.
GigaSpaces was recognized for their Smart Cache solution as it allowed one of Europe's largest car manufacturers to offload the vast majority of mainframe requests to its core in-memory data grid engine, increasing the speed of calculations and workload scale, while decreasing the infrastructure carbon footprint.
After implementation, over 95% of requests for CO2 emission calculations are served by the product and response time is down to 15-19 milliseconds versus 200-300 milliseconds for mainframe requests. Calculator capacity increased 15X without upgrading the mainframe platform, and infrastructure footprint was reduced by a factor of 6X while workload scale was increased by 20X. An extra gram of CO2 emission per kilometer can result in a fine of €100 per vehicle, which can add up quickly, so the implementation of this technology saved the manufacturer from a large sum of potential fines. The entire solution was developed and deployed within 12 weeks from start to finish.
"It is an honor to be recognized as a finalist in two categories in the Digital Transformation and Operational Excellence Awards," said Adi Paz, CEO of GigaSpaces. "Our mission is to equip companies with the right tools to advance their digital transformation efforts and drive innovation, allowing them to provide a top tier customer experience in the simplest way possible."
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Dec. 15 in Orlando in conjunction with the Business Transformation & Operational Excellence World Summit, the largest senior-level annual event for executives in business and digital transformation as well as innovation and operational excellence.
