Industry: Property Services
The PlanetHome Group is a leading property service provider in Germany and Austria. When it comes to being prepared for the future, the company places great value on its IT strategy for digital transformation. The volume of digital data which PlanetHome has to manage is continuously increasing, so switching to the cloud was a logical step. Previously, the central systems including the database and application servers were operated
by a data centre service provider. Due to high monthly costs and lack of flexibility the company wanted to move.
From a previous audit, Logicalis had an understanding of PlanetHome’s requirements and suggested Oracle Cloud Infrastructure would work for its requirements to reduce licensing and operating costs, as well as additional security elements such as the encryption of databases. In the course of database migration, it became clear that the source database was using an outdated character set and this had to be converted before migration could take place. Logicalis solved this problem using a migration script which provided
the Oracle Cloud with the data from the old system, including the character conversion.
