Background

US-based Vermont Information Processing (VIP) is a leading technology supplier for brewers, distributors, wineries, soda bottlers, and other companies in the beverage industry. VIP helps distributors and suppliers improve their warehouse, delivery, and sales operations, empowering them with advanced reporting and analytics. 

Challenges

When VIP began their search with Lighthouse (now Converge), they were looking for an enterprise scheduler to automate their IBM iSeries system. They found that Stonebranch easily met their original need… and offered flexibility to create their own integrations. This added capability allowed them to scale the Stonebranch solution beyond traditional workload automation, into data pipeline orchestration, and more. 

“I would definitely recommend Stonebranch to anybody out there that is looking for a workload automation tool. It's just a perfect pair to go with an ETL tool.”

Solution

Today, VIP uses the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC) for job and workload scheduling, as well as data pipeline orchestration, self-service automation, DevOps automation, and cloud service automation. The UAC allows them to quickly and securely integrate with IBM iSeries and DataStage, AWS EC2, Snowflake, and Linux, among others.

New call-to-action

“Once we got our ETL team up and running, then other teams within our company saw how easy it is to use Stonebranch. So the word is spreading.”

Powering Data Pipelines Across a Hybrid IT Environment 

With Stonebranch, VIP orchestrates almost 300,000 jobs per day throughout their hybrid IT environment — on-prem and in the cloud. This is half the number of tasks they were running prior to Stonebranch. The UAC gives them the flexibility to use skip conditions to avoid unnecessary work and processing costs.
