Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform for its Bokaro Steel Plant to modernize its critical SAP environment, accelerate its digital transformation agenda and reduce its environmental footprint.

SAIL is an Indian government-owned steel agency and its Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL) is undergoing a huge modernization and digital transformation. Over the last 12 years the demands on its ERP environment have increased, with the company requiring a significant refresh of systems in order to maintain business and enhance service levels.

The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform will provide a unified on-premises cloud experience and a dashboard to monitor and plan consumption of IT for complete visibility of IT resources. It will also help improve capacity planning and forecasting, allowing SAIL to allocate resources more effectively and make more informed decisions.

Som Satsangi, managing director at HPE India, said: “We are honored that SAIL BSL has chosen HPE GreenLake to modernize its technology environment. Our fully managed HPE GreenLake platform provides infrastructure, software, and services that enable automation, control, flexibility, exceptional experience, and a positive commercial advantage.”

Amarendu Prakash, director in-charge of SAIL Bokaro Steel Plant, said: “We selected the HPE GreenLake platform to accelerate our digital transformation journey and modernize our technology environment. We are now more agile and can respond more quickly to our business demands. We have also improved our capacity utilization rates and reduced our datacenter footprint by over 60 percent meaning that we now also consume less power which should help us reach our sustainability goals.”
