itelligence and J2 work with Mizuho Bank to drive Risk Management

itelligence and J2 Consulting have been working with Japanese bank Mizuho to successfully re-platform its system running SAP® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (SAP ASE). The project has involved migrating from SAP ASE on Solaris to SAP ASE on Linux VMWare and upgrading to the latest version of SAP ASE.

Mizuho Bank uses SAP ASE to drive its risk management systems at its London branch. The migration helps ensure that Mizuho is able to continue to meet high performance and efficiency requirements across its network.

The upgrade to the latest version of SAP ASE has given Mizuho additional benefits, including the ability to upgrade to the new SAP ASE license model, SAP Adaptive Server, platform edition. The platform edition offers businesses broad flexibility; rather than be restricted to one distinct product, it allows interchange between SAP products including SAP ASE, SAP Replication Server or SAP IQ software in response to business requirements. Other advantages of upgrading include unrestricted platforms and virtualisation.

David Hurley, Director of Mizuho Information & Research Institute Inc. London Branch, commented: “This upgrade gives us the flexibility to be able to respond to our ever-changing business needs, ensuring that database performance continues to meet the high levels we demand. The itelligence support package is a valuable part of this agreement.”

The collaboration between itelligence and J2 aims to offer significant benefits for customers running SAP software. Whilst J2 provides specialist experience and understanding of SAP technologies, itelligence provides strong support as an SAP platinum partner in the UK. The relationship itelligence and J2 have built with Mizuho is an ongoing partnership that is expected to continue to grow.

Justin Brading, Managing Director at itelligence UK, commented: “We are pleased to have worked in sync with J2 to help drive forward Mizuho’s requirements of a high-performance database and help keep risk management at the top of the agenda. We look forward to working with Mizuho.

J2 becomes UK reseller of leading non-intrusive monitoring tool, iWatch™


iWatch is used worldwide to help improve performance of major databases including ASE, DB2 and SQL Server.  Unlike traditional monitoring systems, iWatch captures a complete record of every SQL request in real-time – crucially without using polling or other intrusive methods that might interfere with performance and add overhead to critical applications.

The use of query-level logic offers the user many advantages in addition to non-intrusiveness. With iWatch, performance is measured from the perspective of the application or end user (rather than capturing IT-centric metrics), enabling organisations to quickly pinpoint areas where the most dramatic performance improvements can be made. In addition, comprehensive reporting features ensure that following an incident, iWatch can be used to immediately identify what has changed and why e.g. has user behaviour changed since this morning, yesterday, last week…?  These are significant advantages in complex, distributed environments where critical time can be wasted simply determining which area of expertise within the IT organization can best be brought to bear to resolve a particular issue.

J2 are delighted to be able to add iWatch to their existing suite of solutions, which includes SAP (Sybase) database & technology tools and iReplay workload capture tool.

Jo Hughes, Marketing Manager at J2:  “As specialists in both the implementation and on-going application of SAP database technologies, we are continually seeking technologies that will help our customers quickly improve performance and reduce costs. iWatch is one such tool – it deploys easily and offers extensive real-time metrics, comprehensive reporting and an intuitive, easy to use interface. We believe iWatch is an excellent monitoring choice for any user-driven organisation with a complex database environment that wants to maintain its performance edge.”

iWatch is available for a free 30 day evaluation:
