Egyptians faced a slow, fragmented financial landscape that required consumers to set up separate accounts for each of their many service providers. Since launching in 2008, e-pay provider Fawry has reduced this complexity by providing a simple, single payment gateway. But with 90,000 locations across Egypt, the company was overrun with valuable data.
Faced with such rapid data growth, the company turned to IBM Db2 and Oracle database software running on IBM Power Systems. The technologies scale seamlessly to provide a powerful foundation for the company’s 2 million transactions per day, enabling them to glean powerful insights from their data more efficiently.
