Actifio provides ZE PowerGroup automation to open new business opportunities

BOSTON, December 14, 2017 – Actifio, the Data-as-a-Service company, today announces its partnership with ZE PowerGroup (ZE), a global leader in enterprise data management. ZE is using Actifio to virtualize its database, increase revenue, and accelerate testing by providing self-service and automation. Selecting and implementing Actifio has provided ZE all that the company needed, along with unexpected advantages that’s helping to expand service offerings, gain new clients, and increase revenues.

Headquartered in Vancouver, ZE helps clients gain efficiency and reduce business risks through data automation and services. Its ZEMA Platform is a comprehensive data management and business process automation solution that provides data collection, analytics, data automation, and integration capabilities. ZE is growing globally, and so is the size of their databases. Application development had become increasingly complex, and frequent client requests for database refreshes made it difficult to keep pace with testing. From request to delivery, each refresh could stretch through an entire week. On top of that, each production backup or recovery would take days. All the processes were manual, complicated, and exhausting to employees. The team looked for the best commercial software fix in the industry. After extensive comparisons of cost and functionality, the team chose Actifio as its solution to solve these challenges.

The Actifio platform has impacted ZE business in multiple dimensions. Weekly software patches can be quickly applied. Database access and permissions can be set with the push of a button. Testing is no longer done against outdated versions. Self-service and ease-of-use have boosted productivity. Storage capacity requirements have been reduced.

“Our projects are based on the potential for ROI. When we realized what database virtualization could mean to our business, the choice of Actifio became very compelling,” says Nader El-Ramly, Chief Product Officer at ZE. “Now we’re doing more work, offering more services, and doing it all much faster.”

“ZE set out to simplify and save time on tedious manual operations,” said Ash Ashutosh, founder and CEO at Actifio. “We’re thrilled that they’ve found an effective solution in Actifio. Now they can provide faster services to their customers while also offering new services that create new revenue streams.”
