  • Accelerated data: Updates take just seconds

Challenge:

Atos IT Solutions and Services, s.r.o., is a leading digital services provider operating in 72 countries, worldwide. Atos operates a Czech Republic core public administration system, which serves 8.5 million clients and contributes approximately one third of state budget revenues. To support this critical system and increasing numbers of clients and transactions, as well as improve effectiveness of money collection and distribution, Atos needed to:

  • Provide sufficient and easily scalable performance to accelerate data processing.
  • Ensure stability, security and permanent availability of the SAP HANA database solution.
  • Allow for the implementation of new advanced analytical and reporting tools.
  • Include full redundancy for a reliable failover.

While an update of budgetary data used to take 2-3 hours, with UCP for SAP HANA it now takes 3-4 seconds. Processing a 400,000 line bank account statement used to take 30-40 minutes; today, it takes just 10% of this time.

  • Two identical environments in geographically separate locations to provide failover capability.
