Situation

The Javits Center was experiencing infrastructure failures and frequent system outages that affected productivity and the ability to serve its clients. The Center was on a private cloud that presented scalability and performance issues—a critical deficit for an institution serving thousands of clients and hundreds of major events each year.

There was a discernible lack of proactiveness in the Center’s service management and system monitoring, leading to delayed resolution of system issues. Similarly, there were no real-time synchs for disaster recovery, leaving its infrastructure vulnerable while awaiting resolution. The problems faced by the Javits Center were leading to reduced efficiency and ultimately, client dissatisfaction.

With an unpredictable infrastructure, inability to scale on demand, and high cost of ownership, the Javits Center sought a secure solution to provide horizontal scalability of its infrastructure—scaling up during busy events, and scaling down during times of lower activity.

Migration to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will help Javits achieve its strategic goals of predictable SLAs, platform consolidation, horizontal scalability, and TCO reduction within 18 months. Javits has truly transformed its IT operations on the Cloud, from CAPEX to OPEX.”
