Maritz’s business units leveraged over 27 applications on-premises to manage enterprise resource planning functions such as finance, accounting, inventory, procurement and HR. The challenge was that these on-premises applications supported critical back- office operations, but they were running on aging hardware. As the business grew, it struggled to keep up with the ever-growing workloads. What’s more, the infrastructure had grown so complicated that executing failovers for disaster recovery (DR) was now overly cumbersome, often taking 72 hours to complete a failover.
With the new cloud-based solution in place, Maritz now enjoys the following benefits:
- 10X performance increase
- Jobs that used to take hours now are completed in minutes
- Reduced infrastructure costs
- Simplified disaster recovery
