Freight and Transportation Giant Damco loads up IBM PureSystems to help meet Business Demands
IBM recently announced that Damco A/S, a subsidiary of A.P. Moller – Maersk, will replace their existing IT infrastructure with a datacenter built on IBM PureSystems. As part of the agreement, which is the largest single deployment of PureFlex Systems in the world, IBM will also provide outsourcing services. The new technology and services are designed to provide a solid foundation for Damco’s future growth and will also deliver the flexibility the company requires to meet new trends and business demands in the market.
Damco needed a new strategic and more simplified IT platform for their future IT operation and Damco needed to reduce IT costs without compromising a high level of stability and flexibility in their IT operation.
IBM will also take over the operation of Damco’s SAP systems and the operation of their distributed platforms including Intel, Linux and storage.
”We are very satisfied with the negotiation process and the final result,” said Peter Cabello Holmberg, Damco’s Director of Global IT Service Management. “Damco has ensured that moving forward we will have a robust and advantageous infrastructure. With this announcement, Damco will be able to meet the business’ demands for flexibility and scalability.”
