Banque Internationale à Luxembourg successfully goes live with Oracle® Exadata, on time and on budget with eProseed professional services.

 

In December 2012, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (BIL) selected eProseed professional services and Oracle hardware and software to accommodate its strategic data warehouse consolidation. Indeed, the increasing number of data and report complexity drove BIL to look for a new core infrastructure that could accommodate massive growth and minimize the integration and operational costs normally associated with using multiple vendors.

 

By moving away from third party systems to Oracle® Exadata Database Machines, BIL now enjoys a massive improvement of the platform availability and scalability. A series of performance benchmark has scored database performance increase up to 70x faster than the previous infrastructure, based on traditional server and storage systems.

The challenge was to deploy this new platform without affecting existing application functionalities and without downtime for end-users; ultimately on time and on budget to ensure that the TCO reduction was fully realized.

 

For that reason, eProseed has delivered the end-to-end implementation of Oracle® Exadata Database Machines through a fixed-price professional services engagement, which included guarantees on timeline, on system performance and system capacity remaining available at the end of the migration.

 

"eProseed result-driven commitment backed by Oracle Luxembourg support, were fundamental ingredients supporting our decision making process. It helped us to ensure we would have a highly performing solution with a strong TCO reduction, and it is exactly what we have today", says Thierry Delroisse, COO at BIL.
