 Project objective

The global data center market will double its size over the next 5 years, reaching a total of $304 billion. As a result of this, efficient database capacity planning will be essential to keep operational costs under control. However, current capacity planning relies heavily on manual analysis, leaving to systematic capacity over-dimensioning and unnecessary license and hardware costs.

Over the last 5 years, we have developed GOVERNOR: a complex but intuitive capacity planning software. GOVERNOR offers a standalone solution for efficient server consolidation and optimization. Our patent-pending solution reduces the total number of servers by matching the optimal database instances for each server and by maximizing the resource efficiency. This results in database lifecycle savings of up to 50%, at equal or better performance. For large companies with significant database infrastructure, this represents savings of over €1 million per year.

GOVERNOR already supports Microsoft SQL Server, the database brand with the largest market penetration. For the Phase 2, we will finish development of GOVERNOR with 4 strategic additional features to support faster and broader scaling of the business:

Cloud environment planning support (covering Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services), planning support for Oracle, a GOVERNOR SaaS version and integration to market leading third-party tools.

Commercially, we will continue our expansion across Europe and USA, in collaboration with our network of partners in the Software Asset Management and Managed Services Providers industry.

In this context, we expect to expand the implementation of GOVERNOR and reach a total of over 200 large businesses by 2024. This will result in €200 million in cumulated savings for key enterprises in the EU and elsewhere. The Phase 2 project will allow us to reach the payback period after only 3 years of full commercialization. After 5 years, we expect yearly revenues of over €20M and a ROI of 7.7.
