HP to automate IT infrastructure of DreamWorks Animation

DreamWorks Animation has selected HP to automate its IT infrastructure.

DreamWorks Animation will benefit from a lean and agile IT as HP Datacenter Care – Infrastructure Automation global Center of Excellence (CoE) will provide best practices for its IT infrastructure. As part of the IT deal, HP will conduct review tools usage quarterly to identify challenges, opportunities for improvement, and plan for future needs.

HP Datacenter Care – Infrastructure Automation will enable DreamWorks Animation to manage its infrastructure as code to deliver applications and services.

The average number of application deployments per month for Fortune 1000 companies is expected to double in two years, said IDC. By automating, enterprises can deploy code 30 times more frequently with 50 percent fewer failures.

“As we push the boundaries of digital animation, we require a much faster and more reliable way to deliver applications and IT services,” said Derek Chan, head of Global Technology Operations, DreamWorks Animation.

For more than a decade, HP solutions and services supported all areas of DreamWorks Animation’s production processes, digital infrastructure and business divisions. For IT operations, the latest IT service deal will enable fast release cycles without interrupting production systems.

“Automating infrastructure makes IT a strategic asset that can meet the growing demands being placed on IT teams to rapidly deliver applications and IT services,” said Scott Weller, senior vice president and general manager, HP Technology Services Support, HP.
