INSEE Digital is supporting SAP Hana 4 deployment for its parent company, the Siam City Cement Company (SCCC), and supporting digitisation within the organisation.

INSEE implemented F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) in its data centre to provision, optimise and deliver services.

The company was given a tight timeline of 9 months to architect a data centre to support SAP Hana 4 deployment.

F5 provided the performance and horizontal scaling required to meet the high levels of throughput, enabling INSEE to publish applications quickly within a controlled and secured environment.

"To ensure the success of project INSEE Smart, we needed to consider SCCC's present and future business requirements," said Ittaya Sirivasukarn, chief executive officer, INSEE Digital Company. "With our long term goals, we were ready to find the right platform and solutions. We looked at F5 and found it suited our business requirements, making F5 the right partner for us."

Application-centric infrastructure

INSEE built a new data centre comprising of an application-centric infrastructure at its core, enabling it to keep up with the needs of SCCC changes and evolution of technologies.

Implementation of F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) simplified the realisation of operational consistency and comply with business needs across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

This enabled INSEE to easily transition applications between traditional physical and cloud architectures.

F5 also allows INSEE to carry out static and dynamic load balancing to eliminate single points of failure.

"Today, our Infrastructure team can provide our applications team with a new server in four hours - this previously took months," said Hans Keril M. Ante, department manager, IT Security and Compliance, INSEE Digital Company Limited. "Our applications team can build applications faster, enabling us to meet the demands of the business more quickly. It now takes just half a day (including testing) for the infrastructure team to meet a new connection request at the backend from the application team."
