The most fundamental step of DJP’s digital journey was to deploy a resilient and fast data storage system that delivered a 100% data availability guarantee to ensure zero downtime. Downtime is detrimental to an organization like DJP, which relies on huge amounts of data to operate smoothly.
Online transaction processing (OLTP) was one of the key benefits of installing Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 (VSP G1000), an enterprise data storage platform backed by Hitachi’s 100% data availability guarantee. “With VSP G1000, OLTP speeds are accelerated by two to three times,” says Djuniardi.
Then there is all that unstructured data flowing into DJP. The organization implemented Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) to cleanse and structure the data. By using HCP, DJP could navigate through all the unstructured data much faster, thereby saving the organization time and manpower as well as boosting productivity.
DJP used Hitachi’s Pentaho software to gain further insights and to ease the management of data. “We have data comprising billions of files with very different data sets. With Pentaho, we are successful in matching the data from third parties at a rate of 40%. The success rate continues to increase. Before Pentaho, our matching rate was only 16%,” explained Djuniardi.
He notes that DJP is well on its way to becoming a truly digital organization. “Our data is quite good: The data in our system and can be easily integrated with other data sources. This helps us gather new insights, with the data being easily traceable,” he added.
Djuniardi was impressed by more than the hardware and software deployed by Hitachi Vantara. His long-standing partnership with Hitachi Vantara stems from the latter’s hands-on approach to customer support, and the way it offered in-depth advice and solutions whenever DJP ran into implementation issues.
“Hitachi Vantara offers us the solution with the product, while other principals offered us the product without the solution. We are working together to solve problems.” he said.
Djuniardi added, “Even as other principals offered us products for object storage, cloud and data analytics, ultimately my team and I still chose Hitachi Vantara.”
