Equifax outsourced the management of its IBM Power systems environment to SASIT in mid-2006. In late 2007 the company’s entire New Zealand environment was migrated to SASIT-owned and operated IBM Power Systems servers, under our Infrastructure as a Service offering.
Today we provide a full Power Systems private cloud with managed services for Equifax’s production systems. The systems are hosted in our Greenlane data centre with a fully-replicated system located at an alternative site. We also provide comprehensive support for the company’s desktops which delivers significant savings to Equifax’s IT budget.
In the 10 years since the initial project was implemented Equifax has achieved significant cost reductions by outsourcing their IT requirements. This new business model has enabled Equifax to expand its business without the hardware constraints it previously had.
These long-term results have validated Equifax’s decision to partner with us.
"Equifax is a sales and marketing organisation and that is what we want to focus on. Instead of having to run and maintain IT systems, our technology people can focus on developing and bringing new products to market. This actually makes us money.
By helping us like this, SASIT is an extension of our own organisation, much more like a fellow employee than a supplier.”
