The Challenge: 

For the last decade ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel’s IT department has undergone a transition from traditional IT on-premise, to operational management of global IT services and intensive support for local business units.

The IT department in Denmark supports several of the group locations worldwide and hence, many different end-user requirements. As local coordination and planning processes have grown significantly, ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel`s local offices face high demands for shorter implementation cycles of global IT services. Factors such as agility and flexibility are critical, as the employees in the local IT department have made a transition from experts within their specific areas of IT, to support for business units, and project managers for all local aspects within a global IT services setup.
