Confiserie Sprüngli is known for its premium products and their long-standing and consistently high quality over many years. Adhering to the same principle, for its ERP System (SAP: FI/CO/HR) Confiserie Sprüngli has been relying on the stability and performance of the IBM Power technology for many years.

The data centre renewal originally planned for 2016 was already implemented at the end of 2014. "The UMB team competently showed us that the significant difference between operational and investment costs is clearly in favour of an early investment based on IBM Power8", says Edy Neininger, CIO of Confiserie Sprüngli. "Thanks to the new IBM Power8 system the performance of our SAP system has now increased by more than 60%."

In 2014, as the most successful Swiss IBM Premier Business partner, UMB was able to convince numerous enterprises and SME clients of the commercial and technological advantages brought by the new IBM Power8 technology. You can find more information on IBM POWER8 here.
