Hybrid Transformation Journey – Part 5
Part 5: Real-world transformation stories
Nearly every organization needs on-demand capabilities for applications across the enterprise. The key is finding the right mix of infrastructure to match your unique application and delivery model requirements.
We can help. These three client examples show how.
Trustpower provides electric power to more than a quarter of a million customers in Australia and New Zealand. It also generates fully 100% of its power from renewable resources such as wind farms and hydro-generators.
The company also operates in a highly competitive market, one in which 20% of customers change providers each year. With our help, Trustpower migrated 176 of its 350 enterprise applications to the cloud.
The results: Trustpower freed up IT resources, allowing its managers to focus on actions that customers notice: a better customer experience, faster delivery of services and greater cost-effectiveness.
Del Monte Foods
This well-known food company lost its entire IT infrastructure and back-office organization as part of a corporate divestiture. Now the company had to rebuild those operational components — and in less than a year.
Several industry experts told Del Monte’s SVP of business transformation, Gene Allen, that meeting the deadline would be impossible. “We had consultants come in and tell us, ‘Good luck, but you don’t have a prayer,’” he recounts.
We thought otherwise. And with our help Allen and his team built, tested and implemented a cloud-based IT infrastructure hosted in a virtual private cloud data center. And we did it in just 8 months!
This automotive systems supplier, which serves the Slovak Republic, Czech Republic and Russia, needed to lower its capital expenses — a perfect goal for the cloud.
But rather than move completely to the cloud at once, Matador worked with us in a phased manner. Initially, the company shifted its IT infrastructure to our managed private cloud. Next, we assumed responsibility for its network. And finally, its data center. Today, Matador’s entire IT infrastructure is delivered as a service. The company pays for these services solely on an as-needed basis.
Even better, the work was completed in just 5 months. During that time, Matador maintained full business continuity. And it has lowered its costs without adding any CAPEX.
In this final part of our hybrid transformation journey series, we present these real client examples to illustrate the business outcomes clients have achieved working with us.
