The Challenge
Pantheon, an independent software vendor (ISV) based in the Netherlands, was experiencing rapid growth and an increasing demand for its information and communication technology (ICT) services. The company provides custom ICT solutions, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), human resource management (HRM), and customer relationship management (CRM) software for wholesale and manufacturing companies. As more organizations, particularly small and medium enterprises, were moving to a cloud or hybrid cloud infrastructure, Pantheon saw a significant rise in demand for its cloud and hosting services. This required investments in a robust cloud foundation, including the purchase of new, scalable servers and accompanying software.
The Customer
About The Customer
Pantheon is a provider of custom ICT solutions based in the Netherlands. They specialize in ERP, HRM, and CRM software for wholesale and manufacturing companies, often delivering these solutions as cloud services at market-competitive prices. Their services are purchased as-a-Service with a pay-per-use subscription model, and they supply both standard and customized applications. Pantheon has been an IBM Business Partner for 45 years, supplying ICT solutions that run and are developed on IBM servers. From their head office in Heerenveen and branch offices in Weesp, Deventer, and Son en Breugel, they serve approximately 500 customers throughout the country.
The Solution
To meet the growing demand, Pantheon decided to expand its server park with two IBM Power Systems servers. One server was used to develop customer applications, and the other was used as a production server to host cloud services for customers, also functioning as a backup and recovery server for applications running on current servers. Pantheon opted for IBM Power Systems S922 servers for production, failover, and development environments. The servers were financed by IBM Global Financing, which allowed Pantheon to pay a fixed amount every month, freeing up working capital for their core business of developing custom applications and innovations for their customers.
Operational Impact
  • The IBM Power Systems servers provided Pantheon with the flexibility and scalability needed to deliver customized solutions. The servers allowed Pantheon to run up to 50 different customer environments on one server, each with the desired security options at different levels. This strengthened Pantheon's distinctive character of offering tailor-made SaaS solutions in a safe, stable environment at a competitive price. The servers' scalability also meant that Pantheon could add a suitable server when needed, with the desired capacity and computing power. Furthermore, the servers proved to be very reliable, resulting in extremely low management and maintenance costs, enabling Pantheon to provide their customers with stable, competitively priced cloud solutions.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Delivered about 20 percent more cloud solutions every year since 2015
  • Can run up to 50 different customer environments on one server
  • Can add a suitable server when needed, with the desired capacity and computing power
