Our organization is continually changing and the virtualized environments guarantee flexibility and fast development times impossible to obtain in other ways.
– Paolo Fornasari, Technologies and Services Director, Lombardia Informatica.

Lombardia Informatica is the operating entity of the Lombardy Region which deals with all the region’s IT demand and supply activities. The company plays a pivotal role between the demand of the public administration body, the supply of the information & communication technology market and the individuals/businesses using the services.

Case Study for Agnes Water Tavern

Agnes Water Tavern first became aware of the Sustainable Regions Program whilst attending a local meeting with the Discovery Coast Tourism Commission Inc. (local business association). Reflecting on their day to day operations and daily patronage, management saw an opportunity to improve overall business efficiency and cost saving. A key issue for the tavern has been a reduction in the volume of waste going to landfill. To better manage its waste stream the tavern prioritised cardboard and glass bottle recycling given the large volume of supplier packaging from the pub and the adjacent bottle shop. View further..

Case Study for Criterion Hotela

In December 2007 Sue and Stuart Adams took over the then 92 year old Finch Hatton Criterion Hotel & Pub. Under the new management, the old building of the hotel has undergone some changes towards a more environmentally friendly premise. Sue and Stuart’s first step in becoming more sustainable was to build their own knowledge on possible sustainability measures for their hotel.

Challenges: The market for home respiratory services and equipment was fragmented, and Lincare’s management believed that there was significant potential for expansion through both internal growth and acquisition. Kelly led a team to seek capital from financial partners who were willing to fund not just current operations, but also future growth. “We knew that an acquisition strategy could make Lincare a bigger, more dynamic company.

Case Study for Jamba!

Challenges: Still, the Samwers knew that Jamba! required access to both European and U.S. markets to maintain growth, and they were interested in realizing value through a public offering or strategic sale. They chose Summit Partners to help them continue Jamba!’s growth and to provide a global perspective on exit opportunities.

Solutions: In 2003, Summit Partners recapitalized Jamba! in a $40 million transaction, taking a majority ownership position. Summit then helped Jamba! increase its value by providing guidance at the board level, improving the company’s systems and controls, and helping expand its geographic reach from within Germany to across Europe. Meanwhile, Jamba!’s subscriber base increased from several hundred thousand to several million customers—making it the world’s second-largest subscription-based mobile community.

Case Study about Embraer

Sybase iAnywhere operates in a cluster environment, permits the creation of self-related tables and has an excellent cost/benefit ratio.
– Antonio Espeschit, Embraer Computerized Systems Engineer.

Brazil’s Embraer is a world leader in the manufacturing of commercial jets with up to 110 seats. The company adopted Sybase iAnywhere’s SQL Anywhere as its In-Flight Test Engineering Database Manager. “In-Flight Test Engineering is responsible for carrying out tests on aircraft prototypes to ensure that the final product meets the customer’s and our own engineering specifications, and most of all, safety requirements,” says Sérgio Duarte Penna, Embraer Computerized Systems engineer.

With the introduction of each new family of aircraft, Embraer’s In-Flight Test Engineering group needs to carry out hundreds of tests in Brazil and abroad. In each test, thousands of parameters such as altitude, speed and temperature are measured and analyzed by a team of engineers to meet demanding certification requirements. With successful testing, each country’s certifying entity then approves the sale and operation of specific Embraer jets for their jurisdiction. Learn more about Embraer
