Enterprise Automation that Transforms A universal approach to a more intelligent, agile and secure IT automation landscape

With 1,200 stores and 38,000 employees, Coop Denmark has a 38 percent share of the Danish grocery trade. The company uses a mainframe and many distributed, open systems to process its data. As it grew, it acquired smaller grocery chains and needed to integrate their IT systems, resulting in an increasingly complex IT infrastructure. The company’s BMC Control-M application struggled to accommodate workloads as the variety of systems increased.

Within three to four years, Coop Denmark expected the volume of tasks it had to process each day to increase from 20,000 to 100,000. BMC Control-M software would not support this growth because of difficulties with integration and a lack of transparency. The IT team sought a more universal tool that could seamlessly accommodate applications such as SAP, one of the company’s 10 standard platforms.

By switching to Stonebranch, Coop was able to simplify the automation of existing IT and business processes in an easy, flexible and innovative way and moreover achieved cost reductions and an improvement of efficiency.

  • One agent for all platforms
  • 83% faster, $60,000 less expensive implementation than with BMC
  • $44,000 saved in training costs
  • 25% reduction in production backlog
  • As many as 100,000 tasks processed daily, automatically
  • More than $275,000/year saved on audit preparation time through automation
  • $28,000/year saved due to use of virtual machines
