Visma Solutions provides cloud-based financial administration software.
Visma was seeking a better way to right-size the server environment of one of its's software to manage growth and updates in addition to knowing the best options for replacing physical hardware that was approaching the end of its life-cycle.
The company had already used the SQL Governor solution for several years to ensure platform life cycle management. SQL Governor had collected plenty of data from the platform, which could be used in the project, enabling rapid kickoff. Visma was not aware of any other equivalent solution that they’d even consider.
“If we had relied on guesswork to determine the size and
performance of the new platform, we would most likely have ordered too many or too large servers. The monetary savings are considerable, as servers in large environments cost thousands – even tens of thousands – of euros. We also saved significantly on licensing costs.”
