Whirlpool Will Manage Global Operations on the IBM Services Cloud

IBM and Whirlpool announced that Whirlpool will use IBM Cloud to manage and provide 24/7 access to the company's critical enterprise applications including enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, and business warehouse to help provide worldwide operations efficiency.

As Whirlpool innovates its smart appliances to fulfill real human needs, it must increasingly rely on growing amounts of data to achieve what consumers expect from the world's leading manufacturer of major home appliances. To help clients address this, IBM introduced a new SAP-certified IBM Services for Managed Applications for SAP HANA workloads.

Through this integrated approach of hardware, software, and services, IBM is the first to offer this level of cloud support for massive workloads of up to 24 TB. This means that even the largest customers have the capacity they need to reap the benefits of HANA's in-memory analytics on the cloud. The solution is designed to be flexible and scalable to manage and operate Whirlpool 's significant requirements.

"The advent of emerging technologies has provided companies like Whirlpool Corporation with a whole new platform to innovate on," said Mark Slaga, global technology services general manager for IBM Services for Managed Applications. "Prior solutions often lacked the ability to scale to meet the needs of clients like Whirlpool and required substantial customization, which could drive up costs. With this solution, we're providing Whirlpool Corporation the means to scale its HANA environment to keep up on strategy."
