Learn more on the HP migration approach
Resources and expertise to support our Unisys mainframe platform were becoming scarcer and we needed a future-proof alternative for our core business applications. HP’s experience in successfully carrying out similar projects ensured a smooth migration with minimal impact on our business users. As well as reducing operating cost and lowering total cost of ownership, moving our core apps to an open Linux platform has provided us with a solid basis for additional future functionality and e-services to support business operations. ”
