Case Study of Hoya Corporation

We successfully migrated eight production systems at the same time, which might be considered risky. But VMware software is known for its stability and it is fully supported by SAP. It would have been more risky not to virtualize.”
— Yoshihiro Moriya, IT Group, Financial Department, Hoya Corp.

Cut costs. Increase flexibility and scalability. These driving goals led the global optics firm Hoya Corp. to migrate SAP ERP from a UNIX/Oracle platform to Microsoft Windows and Microsoft SQL Server virtualized on VMware® vSphere®. As a result, the company has reduced its SAP operating costs 75 percent, increased business agility for diversified growth and set the stage for more-robust disaster recovery. What’s more, migration to a pay-as-you-go IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) model in a cloud environment hosted by QUNIE eliminates capital costs in favor of usage-based flexibility…

Case Study on Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab is part of the dynamic and fast-growing luxury hospitality group Jumeirah. It is one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, catering to sophisticated business and private customers. Located on the Dubai coastline in the heart of the Gulf’s hospitality industry, Burj Al Arab is known worldwide for its exceptionally high standards of service. Many of its guests are repeat customers who appreciate the hotel’s commitment to providing a unique experience on each visit. In line with parent company Jumeirah’s “Stay Different” slogan, Burj Al Arab wanted to offer guests early access to world-leading IT facilities.

Frederick Sabty, Director of IT at Burj Al Arab, says: “Our aim is to be different and to remain at the cutting edge of technology. We offer some of the world’s best service, best food and beverages, most luxurious accommodation, and most advanced IT resources for guests. We wanted to make it even easier for our guests to access their e-mail messages, the Internet, and multi-media content.”

Burj Al Arab has already started the migration to a new operating system for back-of-house operations, but the 202 suites—there are no rooms at Burj Al Arab—have come first. Sabty says: “Our guests are our top priority. Having made the decision to switch to the best and latest technologies, including the 2007 Microsoft Office system and Windows Vista, we wanted to be up and running with the new system within three weeks. By becoming an early adopter of Vista, we are equipping our guests with a technology they will soon use for both business and leisure.” Read further..

Case Studies on Frasca International

As was the case for Frasca International, an Urbana-based company that designs and manufactures high quality and reasonably priced flight simulators for training pilots worldwide. At Frasca, the Mechanical Engineering Department was stuck on the tarmac with 2D AutoCad. Now, three years later, Frasca soars above many of its competitors with the help of 3D CAD, specifically SolidWorks.

“When we first started we had so much data in AutoCad that it was difficult to make the decision ‘let’s do it in SolidWorks this time.’ We just had to make some changes,” comments George, adding that the migration to 3D has really broadened their horizons. “We have, in fact, brought on some assemblies recently that I’m pretty certain we never would have attempted before SolidWorks.” Click here to read more…

Case Study on Public Transport Project Management

Transport infrastructures are highly fragmented, yet they must serve a travelling public that needs to use the whole. Migration to a new system cannot easily be confined to a particular segment, and teething problems can cause massive disruption – and rapid disenchantment. Privatisation of the railways back in 1993 was followed by the carving up of the national bus and London Tube networks into franchises. “Getting the various operators together to agree something that the travelling public takes for granted is a major task,” says David Hytch, principal transport consultant at LogicaCMG.

Case Study on A Population-Wide ID card (Estonia)

Estonia has implemented the electronic ID card as the primary document for identifying its citizens and the alien residents living within the country. The card, besides being a physical identification document, has advanced electronic functions that facilitate secure authentication and legally binding digital signature, in connection with nationwide online services. The Estonian ID card is used to gain access to a number of Internet-based services, including viewing and changing data in the Estonian Citizenship and Migration Board systems, running queries to the national registers, using the E-Tax Board, gaining access to several banks, giving digital signatures, purchasing and using ID-tickets, and many others.

Case Study on ThirTeen/WneT

Background: Although it began broadcasting highdefinition (HD) programming in 2008, Thirteen/WNET, America’s most-watched public television station, completed the migration of all of its production operations to HD in January of 2011. To do this correctly, they had to carefully expand the existing signal distribution infrastructure to accommodate more HD content and a significant but decreasing amount of standard-definition (SD) shows as well…

Operation: The station still handles some SD content, so the new Trinix gives the station much more capacity than it had before on the SD side. They now have expanded HD routing capability as well for moving signals throughout the building and—once programs are finished—sending them directly to master control for playout…

Global Corporate and Investment Bank Case Studies

The client was undergoing a global dealer voice technology platform transformation programme. The strategic aim of the programme was standardisation and stabilisation, so that all its business entities could benefit from common dealer voice technology.

Having assisted the client with the first phase of the change programme in the Americas region, PTS Consulting (PTS) was appointed alongside the technology supplier to undertake a review of the European project plan and approach. The European phase involved the implementation of the platform into the off‐site data centre, plus the migration of 1,250 traders and over 1,000 private wires in 14 phases across multiple locations. PTS was then asked to project manage the European implementation and in doing so instil governance, mitigate risk and ensure that the project timeline was adhered to and ensure continued Business as usual (BAU) for the traders.
