The Challenge 

As the second largest financial services company in Latin America, Banco do Brasil has one of the largest and most complex IT infrastructure environments in the world. As a publicly owned bank with billions of daily transactions and millions of customers, there is no margin for system downtime or application disruptions. 

Previous solutions to manage performance and conduct capacity planning were cumbersome, slow, required manual coding, and were not interactive or easy to train new hires on. They needed a solution that would allow them to keep up with modern demands, rising transactions, and expanding data volumes. 


The Solution 

For more than a decade, Banco do Brasil has used IntelliMagic Vision to monitor and manage the performance and availability of their entire end-to-end z/OS and SAN infrastructure environments. 

“We use IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS on a daily basis to investigate bottlenecks and analyze performance problems. We also use IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS to improve our system and storage designs and better understand our environment. IntelliMagic Vision has been extremely helpful in post-mortem analysis.”  

– Fabio Pereira, Banco do Brasil, Storage Manager
