Starting situation
In order to be able to offer high-quality and cost-efficient IT services for its 15,000 employees worldwide, the Swiss industrial group launched a comprehensive modernisation program. The main objectives were to centralise IT operations and to implement a service-orientated operating structure. TEAL was given the task of consolidating and modernising the internal data centres. The data centres were to be designed as a private cloud infrastructure based on Microsoft virtualisation and management technologies to ensure maximum flexibility and cost efficiency.

Approach
TEAL accompanied the entire project from requirement analysis through design creation and implementation all the way through to acceptance. After it went live successfully, we temporarily controlled the operations team and supported service onboarding until the operation was successfully transferred to an offshore delivery centre.

Result
Thanks to the co-operation with TEAL, the group was able to start productive operations of the private cloud within a few months. In the course of the co-operation, the client’s centralisation objectives were supported significantly through continuous expansion and improvement of the solutions.
