HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced that Ingram Micro is using BMC's Control-M solution to centralize and automate business operations, enabling speed, agility, and higher customer satisfaction.
Ingram Micro offers solutions from 1,700 high-profile technology suppliers via 122 distribution centers in 160 countries. Ranked number 62 in the 2015 FORTUNE 100®, the company is the largest distributor of wholesale technology products in the world with over $46 billion in revenues. To support such a large global organization, the IT team manages 900,000 batch executions per week. BMC's Control-M allows Ingram Micro IT to centralize workload automation in a single tool and standardize the way workloads run across its environment. "Control-M is vital to the success of our IT team and our company because without optimized completion of mission-critical jobs related to manufacturing, supply chain, inventory, orders, and invoicing, we'd be unable to serve our customers," said Don Snios, senior manager of operations and scheduling at Ingram Micro. "We now have two data centers running more than 30,000 business processes with an amazing level of reliability and stability, and we didn't experience a single crucial outage in 2015." BMC's Control-M solution automates faster remediation of issues that arise during batch processing, enabling a team of six at Ingram Micro to complete the work of 30 full-time IT employees working seven days a week. As a result, the core IT team is available to focus on other responsibilities critical to the business and customer satisfaction.
