Exalogic Customers Speak!

Hot on the heels of some great customer case studies at OpenWorld (if you missed it, here is a write up on my session), it's great to see a steady and increasing flow of Exalogic customers who are talking about their positive experiences on video. These are some recent ones that are now online!
  • Allegis Accelerates HR Processing for 130,000 Contractors with Exalogic - video
  • STERCi Reduces Operational Risk for Financial Institutes with their Payments Application on Exalogic - video
  • Ingersoll Rand Achieves 40x Gains In Order Processing with Exalogic - video
  • UL Standardizes ERP Processes on Exalogic for 60,000 Manufacturers with Exalogic - video
Big thank you goes to our Maketing and Production teams who have put these together!

We have some very exciting go lives over the Xmas period which we will talk more about in the New Year!

The Business Case for Exalogic: A Customer Perspective at OpenWorld, October 1-5

Update: If you want to read a writeup of the session by on searchoracle

OpenWorld is once again upon us and I am pleased to be hosting a session with four customers on the business case for Exalogic. This session promises to be of interest to customers who are looking at investing in Exalogic and would like to hear their peers talk about how they have brought Exalogic into their datacenter and the business case to their CFO to do so!

The customers presenting include:

1. Claro is part of America Movil with some 313 million subscribers. When Claro talk about growth they mean 100% increase in transactions a year, or more! Sandro Trindade Ara├║jo will talk through how Claro moved to Exalogic for their Value Added Services Application and achieved a 3 month ROI!

2. Allegis is a staffing company and as staffing companies do, tends to run very large payrolls, getting ever bigger! Guy Myers will talk through how Allegis is managing the problem of keeping ever tighter processing windows with Exalogic. 

3. Nintendo, well not much really to say, Wii! Dave Tempero, Chief Architect at Nintendo will talk through what they are getting up to with Exalogic and Exadata as part of a new project. Although he may not share anything more than the project being new, he will share some perspectives on why it makes sense to deploy new projects running Oracle and ISV applications on Exalogic. 

4. Cognizant's growth has been nothing short of astronomical. With growth come challenges related to ensuring adequate training for employees. In this session Aaron De Los Reyes will talk through how Cognizant deployed Exalogic for their E-learning application running internally. Some of the headlines include getting rid of 70 P-series servers with 1 Exalogic one, a 90% reduction in trouble tickets and 8x increase in capacity for compute node / server and a 4x improvement in response times for end users, What's more the business headlines are equally impressive - saving 7hours per employee per year! Times 150,000 employees
