“Oracle products have always been synonymous with reliability and efficiency. That’s why we chose Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine—a one-vendor solution that guarantees excellence for both hardware and software,” said Pierpaolo Veglio, information and communication technology finance process manager, Fiat.
Fiat implemented its new reporting environment, built on Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, in two months. After a short testing period, Fiat migrated to it quickly and without problems. The project was a success in terms of performance achieved and migration ease.
“Oracle partner Techedge Group proved to be a valuable partner throughout the project. It carefully analyzed out business requirements and proposed an Oracle solution—Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine—which best suited our processing and management objectives,” Veglio said.
