Federal Agency for Information and Telecommunications, known as Bundesamt für Informatik und Telekommunikation (BIT), provides IT and telecommunications services to the Swiss federal administration. BIT seeks to streamline internal business processes, manage IT solution implementation, and offer support to ensure that government IT resources are used securely, cost-effectively, and efficiently. The organization provides services in four, strategic IT areas—consulting, solutions, infrastructure, and education—and it focuses on aligning its services to government needs as they evolve. BIT implements e-government and online applications, builds administrative computer centers to manage data scanning, office automation, e-mail, and printing, and it delivers IT training and seminars to ensure technology is used properly by government employees.
As the IT service provider for the Swiss states, BIT must operate efficiently and guarantee a low total cost of ownership (TCO) for its systems and IT infrastructure, as it receives tax payer funds. In addition, it must ensure high availability of all systems because it maintains many business-critical applications for the government and its citizens.
To address these challenges, BIT selected Oracle WebLogic Server Standard Edition and implemented an automated operating concept to deploy patches, upgrades, and new software versions, thereby reducing TCO for its infrastructure. Oracle WebLogic Server’s standards-based architecture enabled Oracle partner rudolph ag to efficiently develop the new tool for automating patches and upgrades.
BIT selected Oracle WebLogic Server for its reliability and broad functionality. In addition, Oracle provides long-term continuity and professional support during the implementation process and beyond.
Business-critical processes and sophisticated applications require modern, comprehensive IT solutions. Oracle WebLogic Server met the requirements perfectly, in terms of stability, availability, and performance.
Oracle partner rudolph ag applied its comprehensive knowledge and years of experience with Oracle WebLogic Server to BIT’s project. It planned, implemented, tested, and documented the new IT infrastructure concept at BIT. The project went live in June 2011. Since then, rudolph ag has provided 24 installation packages for various Oracle WebLogic Server versions and applied required patches.
Oracle partner rudolph ag provided BIT with extensive knowledge during its Oracle WebLogic Sever deployment, and delivered excellent service to the organization. Additionally, rudolph ag supports and understands the business interests and needs of BIT, ensuring that projects run as efficiently as possible.
