"Compliance requirements within the Financial Industry and escalating support costs due to Physical and Virtual server sprawl forced this major Canadian Financial Institution to re-evaluate their current migration practices. All told their current antiquated technologies, 5400 Windows 2003, including 1440 IIS 6.0 instances, 837 SQL 2005 instances, were holding up innovation. They conducted a two-week Proof of Concept and determined that AppZero would be a key way forward to solve their problem.
For the next phase this major Canadian Financial purchased 200 licenses and targeted 'repeatable' Use Cases, including, Commercial of the Shelf (COTS), IIS, SQL, and Custom-Developed software, to leverage Runbooks and gain labour efficiencies. AppZero application migrations proved highly efficient with a 96% success rate. Up to 100X reduction in effort migrating challenging legacy applications with multiple dependencies. "As Is" COTS and Custom Developed saw a reduction of effort of approximately 60hrs per server resulting in $6,000 in savings per server migrations for an overall savings of $210,000 across 36 servers.
IIS Servers had a reduction of 4 hours per server resulting in $400 in savings per server migrations. Across 1440 servers this resulted in a savings of $600K. DB Servers saw a reduction of 20 effort hours per server for $2000 in savings per server. Across 837 servers savings of $1.7M were achieved.
