Fleetcor Technologies, Inc. has migrated its Comdata business to IBM's cloud-based processing environment to enable the provider of fleet cards to accommodate growth and maximize performance for customers and partners, the company announced.

Fleetcor has leveraged IBM's Cloud Managed Services for z Systems to streamline global IT operations with added security and reliability, while reducing operating costs. The broader implementation with IBM started in 2016, allowing Fleetcor to better accommodate business and operational fluctuations, minimize risk, enhance disaster recovery, consolidate technology infrastructure and simplify network architecture.

"Through this seamless migration with IBM, we've gained a flexible, cloud-based IT infrastructure that helps us reliably scale our transaction processing capabilities to meet the future needs of our customers and partners," said Fleetcor's Waddaah Keirbeck, global chief technology officer. "As our business continues to grow, our technology infrastructure is already in place."

Fleetcor processed over 2 billion transactions in 53 countries in 2016.
