The Problem: The company wanted an independent data center for better control on IT Operations of the organization. A robust IT infrastructure would ensure data integrity and security with quality support, control over ERP application for business transactions, include other business applications like E-Mail, OCS, Q-Dynamics etc, engineering apps, and plant automation applications.
The Solution: They implemented a data center with Blade technology and server virtualization. This gave them the full benefit of a private cloud deployment. As an organisation they were able to protect IPR Rights for the current Acteon Engines and future programs; restrict the possibilities of contract manufacturing and engineering services from Navistar and MWM; and got access to Navistar and MWM sites for information through Team Center application.
The Result: After implementing the data center they have an independent infrastructure for better IT Support; better control over applications and security; energy efficiency; better security. They can also run multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer due to server virtualization. All this has led to 40 % cost saving in overall IT operations with better service.
