The Challenge

  • D&H’s high volume of hourly transactions had expanded significantly due to its focus on building the company and increasing business growth, to a point where its existing integration platform required much greater scalability
  • D&H was looking to upgrade its integration platform to one that was “Built For Growth,” providing the ability to rapidly meet a wide range of integration requirements and leveraged existing knowledge base
  • Its current integration platform was too costly to maintain and made it challenging to extend or scale to meet their needs

The Solution

  • D&H conducted its COTS evaluation process, which included industry-leading platforms and solutions
  • Replace the existing integration platform with a scalable solution to meet its current and future growth of transaction processing volume while reducing its development and deployment costs
