Case Study: Coop Denmark achieves near-100% workload auto

By Michael Boon

Leading  Food Chain replaces BMC Control-M with Stonebranch Universal Automation Center as a strategic Workload Automation Tool.

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.

Results:

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