IBM (NYSE:IBM) and ThreeSixty Pharmacy have announced that a recent strategic agreement has seen the retail and wholesale pharmaceutical company reduce its administrative and support costs last May 28, 2012.
Seeking a robust and scalable storage environment, ThreeSixty Pharmacy selected IBM Storwize V7000 Unified Disk System and the IBM Tivoli Storage Flash Copy Manager to streamline its operations to support its expansion plan.
ThreeSixty Pharmacy is a retail pharmacy company based in Cebu City that offers branded and generic medicines. The company operates around 60 retail branches located within the Visayas region, with plans to open more than 360 branches regionally within the next nine years.
Prior to implementing the solution, ThreeSixty Pharmacy lacked capacity to store the increasing amount of database information it was collecting and its existing infrastructure did not meet best practices or provide scalability options toward meeting future Information Technology (IT) and business challenges. ThreeSixty Pharmacy required a more robust storage infrastructure system to support its expansion plans.
