St. Luke’s University Health Network to Expand Data Management Capabilities

If your organization has experienced significant growth recently, there's a good chance your current technology is outdated and unable to serve your needs. It is important to re-evaluate your existing infrastructure and data security measures to ensure its capabilities align with your company's trajectory.

The Opportunity

St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN), a non-profit, regional, fully integrated, nationally recognized network is going through tremendous growth with the combination of acquisitions and increasing service demands of partner facilities across the Northeast region. With limited resources at hand, this growth led to an increased need for a solution to manage and protect more data. In addition, this client needed guidance with upgrading their current TSM servers with the latest technology and applications.

Data Management and Protection Solution

Micro Strategies met with the client to understand their business plans and their concerns regarding their data management and technology needs. The team at Micro Strategies partnered with local IBM consultants to educate the client on the benefits of IBM Spectrum Protect, a data protection platform that gives enterprises a single point of control and administration for backup and recovery. Based upon our recommendations, the client agreed to implement IBM Spectrum Protect, upgrade and renew licenses, and procure new servers for TSM. In addition, the client contracted Micro Strategies to perform the upgrade and was able to offer them competitive financing options with IBM Global financing.
