About the Customer:

Our client is one of the leading telecommunication service providers in Ukraine with a nation-wide network and years of successful market presence.

Business Challenge

As part of their global digital transformation strategy, our client needed to optimize and upgrade their existing IT infrastructure. Our client decided to migrate from the outdated local IT infrastructure to a modern Microsoft Azure Cloud platform to facilitate the company’s modernization.

Among the objectives of the project were the following:

  • Eliminate the use of outdated hardware and software. Besides reducing equipment maintenance costs, it would also help neutralize cyber threats and vulnerabilities related to legacy software.
  • Migration to the new infrastructure would also eradicate risks to the company’s business continuity associated with obsolete hardware.
  • New cloud infrastructure would enable high performance of all systems within dynamic workloads.
  • Since our client envisioned the transformation project as a way to streamline internal business processes, it was also necessary to ensure a straightforward yet secure way for all employees to access their workplace from various devices: laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
  • On top of that, the client’s employees lacked modern tools for user communication and collaboration. Such tools would further improve business efficiency.
