Unisys Corp. has completed the beta testing of its new enterprise computing platform with Aspasiel s.r.l., a Terni, Italy-based information technology solutions and infrastructure services company.
During the testing, Unisys was able to migrate Aspasiel’s SAP ERP applications to the lower-cost Forward! by Unisys platform from IBM Power 770 mainframe in just a few days, Unisys announced Tuesday.
“The Forward! platform is designed specifically to deliver the mission-critical security, availability, scalability and predictable computing performance that enterprises like Aspasiel require to meet the newest generation of enterprise computing challenges,” said Dominick Cavuoto, Unisys president.
“The Forward! platform showed Aspasiel a cost-efficient way to benefit from the power of the Unisys secure partitioning technology on an industry-standard Intel platform while retaining the security and predictable performance we’ve come to expect from our RISC-Unix- system,” said M. Battistoni, Aspasiel chief executive.
“In addition, the Forward! platform helps set the stage for a future transition to the SAP HANA environment so we can realize the benefits of big data for our business,” Battistoni added.
