Prodam case study for Servix
Challenge: Between 2015 and 2017, the financial and political collapse of the State of Amazonas produced a crisis in PRODAM - Data Processing Amazonas S / A, which is a mixed capital company, has as its shareholder Government of the State of Amazonas and aims to provide solutions in Information and Communication Technology, with excellence and innovation, serving the public power and private initiative, contributing to the well-being and quality of life of society. To overcome this moment Critically, the company needed to upgrade its technology landscape: downsizing the mainframe, adopting a hyperconvergent solution, and reducing energy and climate costs. “They had a mainframe-based infrastructure that spent a considerable amount of hardware and software maintenance on a monthly basis. In addition, all the software running on top of this environment cost more than a low-platform solution, ”explains Luiz Martins, Servix Sales Director for the North and Northeast of Brazil. Solution: With the Nutanix technology implemented by a strategy that was tailored by Servix (in conjunction with PRODAM), PRODAM has achieved gains in scalability and on-demand growth, integrated management of its data center and reduced costs by increasing performance considering the company's performance in general. “They auditioned with Nutanix (technology) running an Education Secretariat application (originally created for the mainframe). This application was aimed at the enrollment of students from state schools (Amazonas) and always a cause for concern, because the performance was not enough to cope with the access peaks in the enrollment periods, for example ”, adds Martins. ROI: In addition to optimizing all of its services and corporate performance more broadly, PRODAM will save from $ 17 million, considering the cost of operating and upgrading previous platforms against Servix's project investment (for the five-year period). “The solution offered by Servix and the entire implementation process was flawless. This project is a good example of how we can use intelligence to improve services and reduce government spending, ”concludes João Guilherme de Moraes Silva, president of PRODAM.
