mobily, one of the two largest mobile telecommunications companies in Saudi Arabia, is a regional thought leader in the optimization of IT operations. As such, it quickly saw the benefits of
cloud computing and embarked on a major strategic initiative to fully implement cloud and automate its IT infrastructure.
After a thorough competitive review, mobily selected the
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution from BMC Software (NASDAQ:
BMC) because of its proven ability to deliver on key business requirements for the telecommunications leader. The company also engaged BMC Consulting Services to ensure a smooth and rapid implementation.
“As a longtime partner of BMC Software, we have been very impressed with the company’s approach on
Business Service Management and their best practices concerning the automation of our IT services,” said Medhat Amer, CIO at mobily.
Haithem AlFaraj, VP of IT operations at mobile, added, “The use of BMC Services meant that the implementation and execution of the project was very well organized and efficient. Because of that we were able to manage all the required changes that arose during the implementation process itself.”
mobily wanted to implement a private cloud that would automate service provisioning, provide an easy-to-use interface to encourage rapid take-up by end-users and ensure scalability for anticipated growth.
mobily implemented the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution to meet these objectives. The company also engaged BMC Consulting Services, including its BMC Cloud Rapid Deployment and BMC Education Services offerings.
With BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and supporting BMC Consulting Services, mobily:
Reduced time for provisioning services from three to four weeks to 35 minutes
Increased IT productivity by automating manual capacity management processes – such as provisioning – across both the physical and virtual data center environment
Eliminated bottlenecks that delayed deployment of new applications
Obtained quick, dashboard-driven access to data that enabled better planning for data center power and cooling requirements over time
