"We´re running one of the world´s largest single global instances of SAP ERP on Windows. Air Products is the only global industrial gas supplier running its business on this architectural platform…this provides us with an unparalleled ability to interact with our global customers and suppliers in a common, efficient fashion regardless of where they are located. By migrating to HP Integrity servers with Dual-Core Intel® Itanium® 2 processors and Microsoft® Windows®, we've created a much more agile, cost-effective infrastructure that combines the performance and reliability of our previous mainframe platform with the benefits of a standards-based solution. Our scalable, cost-effective, and energy-efficient Integrity servers are allowing us to expand our SAP solution to take advantage of the tremendous growth in our Asia branches.”
