Food supplier Nisa-Today's, which serves 5,000 retail stores, has installed virtualisation technology from IBM to increase the number of orders it can accept from customers.
Nisa-Today's can now process orders in 10 minutes rather than 35 minutes, and critical batch processing is now two times faster.
The firm used Hypervisor virtualisation technology from IBM, which allows the on-demand allocation of processing power to applications that experience high demand at different times.
"Our systems were starting to show signs of strain under the increasing number of customers. It was imperative that we reduced batch processing time to ensure the system continued to meet business needs," said Wayne Swallow, IT director at Nisa-Today's.
