MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today that dm Drugstore Corporation is using the ADVA FSP 3000 to transport mission-critical information between its data centers. With approximately 50,000 employees and revenues in excess of 7.6 billion Euros in the 2012/2013 fiscal year, it's vital that dm Drugstore Corporation has the most robust and secure IT infrastructure available. FILIADATA, the IT subsidiary of dm Drugstore Corporation, operates several business continuity and high-availability solutions, including a high-end IBM Parallel Sysplex environment. The backbone of this environment is an optical transmission solution based on the ADVA FSP 3000, which has recently been installed in cooperation with FILIADATA's long-standing partner, TelemaxX.

"Trust is a quality that our team values. It's something that we build into everything we do. Not just in our technology but in our every action," said Uli Schlegel, business development, SAN Solutions, ADVA Optical Networking. "When you're dealing with your customers' mission-critical data, with their reputation, with their business, you know that there cannot be any mistakes, any missed steps. This is part of the reason why we're helping dm Drugstore Corporation with its IBM mainframe Parallel Sysplex connectivity. They know our technology's reputation, they know what our team is capable of. As with all of our customers, they trust us. They know their data and their business is safe."

Deployed by many of the Fortune 500 companies, geographically dispersed and redundant IBM mainframes provide high-end business continuity applications for uninterrupted application uptime. This continuous uptime is critical for organizations that require their business applications to be always on and data to be available every second of every day. The ADVA FSP 3000 has a long history of being used within this specific data center environment. ADVA Optical Networking has worked closely with IBM for more than a decade to ensure that its technology meets IBM's exacting standards and rigorous qualification programs. This close interworking relationship between the two companies was one of the principal reasons that dm Drugstore Corporation chose the ADVA FSP 3000.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
