Eminevim Opted for ITserv For a Seamlessly Working Architecture.

Intending to integrate new generation technologies into their business management processes and maximize customer satisfaction, Eminevim opted for the HPE SimpliVity XL solution for a strong, innovative, and future-embracing IT infrastructure.

Founded in 1991 as a group of companies, Emin Üstün Holding own a strong corporate structure and a dynamic service approach.

The company, which includes Eminevim, is operating in the vehicle and housing markets with an interest-free financing model Collaboration System. The company started first by offering an interest-free financing model to those who could not afford to own a car, then in 2005, it started to provide this same financing model to those who want to buy a house.

Emin Üstün Holding offers different solutions to different needs…Eminotomotiv and Eminevim are making people own houses and cars with the interest-free Collaboration System, while Emin Gayrimenkul Geliştirme built mass housing projects to created livable areas.

Emin Enerji, Emin Tarım ve Hayvancılık, which are part of Emin Üstün Holding, and other companies such as Emin Sigorta, and Eminotomotiv 2. El, continue on their way with the aim to do the best in their field.

Today, Eminevim is a company that provides service with 128 branches in Turkey. This fast-growing company attaches importance to customer satisfaction and started a big digital transformation project in 2019 by prioritizing technology investments. The works initiated to integrate new generation technologies into business management processes, and manage resources more efficiently by ensuring the management and standardization of financial processes, required a strong, innovative, and future-embracing IT infrastructure.

 

Emin Üstün Holding IT Systems Infrastructure and Operations Manager, Mr. Erhan Algan explains the critical business processes and IT strategies at Eminevim as follows:

“CRM occupies a very critical status in our organization, as there is intense end-user service in business processes.

We offer services with our custom-developed software and our developers’ team that ensures the smooth operation of our software. We implemented the project of transition to SAP infrastructure, the leading enterprise business software provider in the sector, which started at the end of 2020 and successfully concluded at the beginning of 2021. Thus, we provided the infrastructure that is extremely critical for us and that our institution needs. On the infrastructure side, we aim to keep our critical business processes online and to maintain customer satisfaction high in our end-user services by keeping a close watch on technology and constantly updating with value-added solutions. Uninterrupted and redundant operations are very critical for our structure. As in other financial institutions, possible cuts cause serious financial losses. Therefore, our basic IT infrastructure expectations are to not experience any interruptions and to provide uninterrupted 24/7 service to our customers.”

 

We achieved significant added values in terms of performance enhancement and flexibility.

Eminevim put HPE SimpliVity XL solutions into use to meet its expectations. “HPE SimpliVity’s uninterrupted operation, redundant operation, and optimum backup solutions served as the driving force behind making this investment,” said Erhan Algan, and underlines that the most important expectation of top management is the performance of the system.

Erhan Algan explains the business goals achieved by the project as follow: “The HPE SimpliVity XL solution provided us with ease of management in the first place. We took full advantage of the technological benefits offered by 3 HPE SimpliVity XL, which we positioned in our centers. We can switch in seconds between data centers in our central buildings or between our disaster centers.

Managing, backing up, and updating hundreds of virtual machines through a single interface has dramatically reduced our workloads. The HPE SimpliVity infrastructure has provided us with added value in terms of performance enhancement and flexibility. There was a significant reduction in backup times. We also saved capacity in the storage structure. Savings in data size is among the essential advantages of the solution for us.

We also saved capacity in the storage structure. Reducing the data size is among the most important advantages provided by the solution.

The new solutions achieved a space savings of 60 terabytes in 6 petabytes of data space, to attain a significant efficiency with a compression ratio of 1:288.

We achieved new solutions with a space-saving of 60 terabytes in 6 petabytes of data space. We achieved significant efficiency with a compression ratio of 1:288.

We used to backup every 24 hours. With the new solution, we can backup every 15 minutes.

While we were able to back up in 6 hours with the old technology, now we can back up two terabytes of data in 15 seconds.”

 

Erhan Algan explains the reasons behind choosing HPE: “We were satisfied with the service quality in our previous works with HPE. In addition, we have seen that the HPE SimpliVity solution has advantages over its competitors in the hyper-converged architectures market, in the successful case studies (POC) we conducted with our solution partner ITserv. That’s why we decided to work with HPE.”

 

Erhan Algan also lists his suggestions to institutions that want to embark on similar projects: If possible, it will be essential to check whether the promised improvements are provided by conducting a case study (POC) with the relevant devices in their structures.”

 

Erhan Algan is suggesting to institutions that want to embark on similar projects as follows: “We strongly recommend to institutions to evaluate the pros and cons of the solutions they have examined before making similar projects. If possible, it will be important to check whether the promised improvements are achieved by conducting a case study (POC) with the relevant devices in their structures.”

 

We have created an uninterrupted infrastructure managed from a single location. By identifying the critical needs such as continuous operation and work continuity at HPE Eminevim, we carried out a successful HPE SimpliVity project together with our business partner ITServ.

HPE Turkey Channel Sales Manager Taha Niron explains the details of the project as follows: “To be able to proceed by making the right decision in the project analysis, we conducted detailed analyzes with Eminevim’s IT team. As a result, we determined that Eminevim needs an infrastructure that can be managed from a single place and operate smoothly, to meet the performance increase needs. So, an uninterrupted architecture was created based on business continuity and performance increase needs with HPE SimpliVity products, which offers our customers the opportunity to manage from a single place, and where backup can be managed very simply and at frequent intervals.”

A turnkey solution.

 

Melda Güçlü, Deputy Sales Manager of HPE’s business partner ITServ, also describing the HPE SimpliVity project steps at Eminevim: “We provided technical support for Eminevim’s outage problem before. ın this case, we realized that the customer does not tolerate interruptions. They need an uninterrupted working platform in redundant architecture. We started our suggestions in this direction. As HPE platinum business partner and authorized service centre, we brought the customer together with a turnkey solution.
