The Staatsbetrieb Sächsische Informatik Dienste (SID) is the German Federal State of Saxony’s central IT service provider. SID supports the state administration with cutting-edge information technology and provides expert advice to its customers on all IT matters. Its brief includes the development, introduction, operation and maintenance of IT processes, planning, operation and administration of the IT infrastructure, and central IT procurement.
SID had been operating Oracle Databases at its datacenters for many years, running on IA64 hardware. However, this older technology had to be replaced for technical and financial reasons, while SID wanted to leverage the project to re-engineer its Oracle Database infrastructure. The project was initially financed and realized for migrating the IT system FÖMISAX (Landeseinheitliche Fördermitteldatenbank des Freistaates Sachsen), the State of Saxony’s subsidies database.
