Who is supporting all this rapid e-Commerce growth?




With more and more consumers like you and I turning to the internet to make their purchases online, it’s no wonder the world around us is changing fast.  We’ve all seen the consumer e-Commerce statistics in the press. Whether it’s Amazon, Ebay, or other platforms, we as consumers are driving this double-digit growth in e-Commerce. In fact the UK is a leading market in this regard, and in its efforts to deliver our orders ever more quickly, logistics companies are snapping up more and more local warehouse space in the race to get those products to us ever more quickly.

This growth is creating problems for the underlying infrastructure that helps to deliver all the capability, so some robust IT infrastructure is required to underpin all this store-front order & customer payment, scaling together with it.

So how are e-Commerce providers managing to cope with this growth?

One of the areas where the HPE community are making great headway is helping legacy Oracle customers to alleviate their application growth issues.  Customers globally have successfully migrated their old Oracle infrastructure to the more open and scalable NonStop SQL/MX infrastructure without disturbing their valued applications.  In doing so, they have removed the performance ceilings that they are suffering and given their application environments a new lease of life.

However, achieving a successful migration in real-time while keeping the business functioning requires some good planning, great tools and it doesn’t hurt to have a trusted, experienced partner to offer some assistance.

Enter: TCM.
