Tata Sky’s critical Electronic Voucher Distribution (EVD) application was running on a proprietary middleware platform. Sustaining the platform was expensive, due to high license maintenance and support costs. As the existing platform reached end-of-life and needed a version upgrade, Tata Sky decided to replace the proprietary platform with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
The migration helped Tata Sky to reduce the TCO of the EVD application by 75%. Performance also improved significantly and turnaround time for the recharging process was reduced. With this success, Tata Sky plans to use Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform as a standard middleware platform for all of its applications.
