39% SAVINGS IN RUN-TIME FOR FINANCIAL FIRM & DELAYED COSTLY UPGRADE BY 18 MONTHS
A large New York based financial services firm was in the process of extensively reprogramming their mainframe applications. A single normal workday was inadequate to test the massive amount of programming changes.
To further complicate things, their mainframe processing was outsourced to a hosting provider. When testing would overflow into weekends, they would get hit with increased usage rates. They also had to pay for additional support, programmers and operators that were required during these periods. This cost structure was exorbitant and not maintainable.
Critical Path was engaged to improve mainframe efficiency by shortening on -line transaction response times, reducing batch consumption, and reducing run -times in the batch production cycle.
The TurboTune® Analysis was completed and a full Audit report was provided to the client. The client implemented the recommendations, resulting in performance reductions, on an average, of 39%. This reduction allowed testing to resume during normal work hours and delayed costly hardware upgrades for 18 months.
