Ecofys modernizes IT environment thanks to Sogeti
Sogeti facilitates Cloud based Infrastructure Management system for Ecofys.
Ecofys is part of the Eneco group but has to remain independent from a data and operational perspective. The existing infrastructure was rapidly becoming obsolete and Ecofys needed an IT environment based on customer needs. Key drivers were high user satisfaction and facilitation of knowledge sharing and mobility.
Sogeti took on the as-is management of the existing IT environment and in parallel constructed a green-field infrastructure, based on the Cloud principle. Initially this was based on a combination of Private Hosted Storage, Office 365 and SaaS for the most important business applications. In the process of continuous improvement, full functionality now is in the cloud, with all storage and Identity and Access Management running on Azure. Sogeti provides 24*7 service desk support and full infrastructure management from the Sogeti Cloud Factory.
The solution provided by Sogeti enables Ecofys to answer quickly to market developments which facilitates flexible growth. IT costs are now truly based on actual usage. Billing is unit based for packaging and pay-per-use for Storage and SaaS. Ecofys was looking for a partner in all IT matters. Sogeti is that partner, enabling them to fully focus on their core business.
