Business Challenge story
Following the success of a major consolidation project, Baldor Electric wanted to continue to drive down operational costs in its virtualized SAP Business Suite software environment.
Baldor non-disruptively migrated its SAP Business Suite applications from an IBM® System z10® Enterprise Class server to an IBM zEnterprise® EC12 server.
Delivers 35 percent more capacity with no increase in energy footprint. Sustains a reduction in energy costs of more than 60 percent, and a cut in IT administration costs as a proportion of sales revenue by 50 percent.
