Case Study: DaimlerChrysler South Africa - Migrating Mission Critical Application Achieving Over 50% Cost Savings and Improving Service Levels

Cover Image
The Challenge
In October 2003, DaimlerChrysler South Africa decided that significant cost savings could be achieved by migrating its mission critical systems onto a contemporary low cost platform and in the process remove the mainframe.

The Solution
Micro Focus Studio™
Micro Focus Server™

The Results
DaimlerChrysler SA met their deadline for moving the entire application for its after sales support and parts distribution off the mainframe, thus enabling them to meet their goal of shutting down the mainframe environment and switching over to a more cost effective UNIX server environment. Benefits experienced already are:

  • Response times and performance as good or better than the mainframe
  • Availability and security comparable to the mainframe
  • Substantial savings in annual hardware/software costs and other related expenses
  • ROI on migration project projected at 24 months
