Efficiency, flexibility, agility, and cost reduction
Schmitz: “Our on-premises architecture was particularly cumbersome to manage. The transition to the cloud was part of our drive to be more efficient and agile in the face of new demands, but also to provide more flexibility and reduce costs while having access to the most recent technological developments. And as a bonus, it allowed us to carry out faster deployments, all with maximum security! Why did we call on delaware at this crucial IT turning point? Because we knew they had the expertise, and we knew they would be the ideal partner to help us move in the right direction.”
How did the collaboration with delaware come about?
“We first worked on Microsoft 365 and email migration. We then tackled the creation of the database in Azure, with the aim of preparing an automated and secure environment to easily deploy the servers. So, what data will be migrated to the Azure Cloud? Well, mailing of course, but also several business applications, for example those dedicated to maintenance, reporting, and even monitoring. This process has just begun, but our infrastructure remains and will remain a hybrid mix of cloud and on-premises, mostly because the nature of our business demands the physical proximity of certain applications to our production sites, for example sensors, fire alarms, etc.”
