Customer Showcase: Prolifics Delivers Innovative IBM PureApplication Systems Solution

Recently, Prolifics delivered an innovative solution that leverages IBM PureApplication Systems, a platform system launched in 2012 that is designed and tuned specifically for transactional Web and database applications. Working closely with IBM, Prolifics delivered one of the first successful IBM PureApplication Systems solutions to date to our customer, a financial services company. This solution serves as a model for future implementations of the technology and is a testament to how companies can achieve real business value. The story is highlighted below:

This financial services company offers lending, leasing, and other financing to businesses in some 35 countries. The Company provides capital for a variety of assets, including industrial facilities and equipment, real estate, and corporate aircraft and vehicles. It also develops private-label financing programs, provides revolving credit, and makes equity investments in various industries. As part of a multinational corporation, the Company was beginning to outgrow its IT environment built on five different application server platforms including IBM WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic, JBoss, Apache Tomcat and Oracle GlassFish. Business and IT leaders undertook four key initiatives in support of business growth: streamline processes and strengthen security under a centralized application server platform; add a mobile platform for accelerated processing and approvals of credit applications; expand the Company’s BPM framework to further enable rapid million dollar transactions; and enhance security with a forensic tool to monitor incidents across the enterprise. As a longtime IT partner to this customer, Prolifics worked with the Company and IBM to build a solution that would best address the Company’s growing business needs – an initiative to build a cloud platform that would ensure speed, consistency and repeatability across the enterprise. The solution centers around four KPIs: reducing deployment times from months down to minutes, transitioning from quarterly to on-demand development rates, tracking and minimizing Failed Customer Interactions and enhancing on-demand compliance through automated reporting. Prolifics and IBM developed a solution built on IBM Pure Application Systems and supported by IBM WebSphere Application Server, Worklight, QRadar, WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Process Center that would enable the new mobile functionality, integration, process management and security capabilities. With the solution in place, Prolifics' customer gains millions of dollars in cost savings as well as improved productivity.
