Our client, an industrial company that exploits patents all over the world, has decided to implement an ambitious IT plan, updating its current infrastructure. since it proposes the division of the company into two large business units, physically and legally separated. The objective of the project is to develop a project for technological updating and migration to the Cloud of everything that makes sense, dividing the infrastructures into two different virtual units prepared for the spin-off, and executing this plan together with the company’s IT team, which it affects systems, applications, telephony and telecommunications.
The infrastructure is largely obsolete, after several years of containment in investments, so urgent action is necessary. The separation of the company into two units makes the Cloud the most appropriate solution, since it provides flexibility and optimization of resources. Also, the IT staff is minimal, so such a solution is best for the company.
We carry out an intensive analysis of the infrastructure of servers, storage, network, applications, voice and telecommunications, identifying where there is urgent action, what is virtualizable and where there will be problems (licensing, type of application, etc.) to do it. An inventory of IT assets is also carried out to identify what should go to each business unit. We identify the most important criteria for making application location decisions (public, private, hybrid, on-premise Cloud) and we recommend uploading as much as possible to the Cloud, presenting a report with alternatives and costs for each of them, to decision making. Cloud option is decided.
IT staff are inexperienced in cloud environments, so our start-up support will be critical.
We accompany the client in the migration of the systems to the cloud, performing most of the work: the construction of the ESXs, the virtualization of the servers and applications (including email), the deployment of security policies, disaster recovery and the improvement of data telecommunications.
