Resilience and flexibility for the future
The project achieved a mountain of milestones: In just a year’s time, 80% of critical applications migrated to cloud along with more than 1,000 stores and 12,000 users. System stabilization was achieved after just two months.
By migrating to the cloud, the retail company is much more flexible when it comes to moving to other cloud platforms, giving it even greater agility to compete now and in the future. The approach enables the company to have a single view of inventory, product data and transaction details and retail users have the data needed to do their jobs more effectively and easily. Now the company enjoys a smaller IT footprint, at less cost and has recouped its initial investment as planned. The company achieved its cost savings target of 27%.
This is just the start of their journey. Now with their cloud foundation set, they will continue to gain even more flexibility and reduce operating expenses, positioning them for future growth.
