Global Pharmaceutical Footprints their Applications to Reduce Operating Costs While Delivering High Performance to the Business

“For all of the tools and monitoring software they had in place, there was a lack of visibility into what was really happening with their applications in their environment.”

the goals

  • Centralize and manage the businesses large portfolio of over 1,000 applications to optimize operating costs
  • Eliminate constant performance issues caused by a recent application migration to a new, state of the art data center
  • Provide a better understanding of application dependencies and resource utilization to all business units

the approach

  • Implement AppFirst to examine the company’s troublesome applications that were being evaluated for migration
  • Deterministically calculate their application’s resource requirements with AppFirst’s Miss Nothing Data (and without modifying the code)
  • Use AppFirst to visualize network communication between more than one thousand company applications
  • Leverage AppFirst to proactively monitor their applications going forward
  • Start with AppFirst’s SaaS offering with long-term plans to bring AppFirst on-prem

the result

  • Reduced operating costs by consolidating applications for peak efficiency
  • Eliminated bottlenecks that were causing recent performance problems
  • Streamlined IT environment for easily shareable and accessible information throughout the organization
