To drive its world-class e-port, Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) deployed a complete HP mission-critical Converged

Infrastructure, including HP Integrity BL890c i4 Server Blades running HP-UX 11i v3, HP storage, and HP networking, with HP Proactive 24 Services for support.

     • Provides 100% uptime and high performance for mission-critical SAP applications

     • Enables seamless workload balancing across two active sites to optimize resource  utilization and maintain desired performance levels

     • Simplifies system administration, saving time and allowing IT to stay lean and efficient


Business matters

     • Supports world-class "e-port" with online portals for suppliers, customers, and employees to streamline business processes

     • Reduces time to award tenders from up to four months to a few weeks, adding vitality to the region’s business climate

     • Increases profitability by enabling customers to manage credit limits more effectively and settle accounts promptly


"Any downtime in IT equates to revenue loss and service disruption. The number of containers we can offload depends on the performance of our SAP systems and directly affects revenue. The business depends on IT, which is why we rely on HP Integrity."

Technology, Kenya Ports Authority
