Use Ipanema’s 3, 30, 300 rule and maximize your productivity while reducing your costs!
Business processes are mapped into applications and workflows used by employees sitting in front of customers, in logistic centers or production facilities. Therefore excellent quality and stability of applications performance is critical for business efficiency.
Business and IT performance are tightly coupled…
Did you know that losing 5 minutes per day due to poor application performance means a 1% productivity reduction which can decrease profitability by 10%?

Challenge 2: Increase IT efficiency – Keeping up with IT transformations in an increasingly complex IT environment isn’t easy.
