A GLOBAL CLOUD TRANSITION OF 400 USERS WITHOUT USER IMPACT
The Challenge: Modernization and Security Enhancement for Engineering
“SiccaDania was at a stage where we had slowly grown out of a traditional outsourcing model and needed a vertically oriented cloud partner who could grow with us on a global scale. The aim was to modernize and secure the technology landscape for our future digital transformation, and help Siccadania escalate time-to-market with Desktop-as-a-Service for engineering.
As a global production and engineering company, security is also of highest priority for us. Our intellectual property is in high demand with cybercriminals. Hence, we are prone to cyberattacks and wanted a major enhancement of our cyber resilience in this process as well.”
Transition Excellence Clears the Path for the Next Cloud Transformation Milestones
“Lean-On shared our ambitions to deliver this platform with the highest quality. After a successful transition to the Lean-On cloud platform and services, we must say that we are well and truly on the way with happy and productive users. Instead of a traditional ‘lift & shift’ approach only, where you take the existing applications and migrate them to a new cloud environment, we saw opportunities to actually transform and modernize with Lean-On. Our requirement of enhancing our cyber resilience could also be met by all the security services within the Lean-On cloud such as market-leading firewall, disaster recovery, application delivery control, patch management and AI technologies.
The cloud carve-out was quite a demanding project, not only because of time pressure but also due to potential risks around our business-critical applications. The transition was done in a few months after signing the agreement. Users now work globally on a high-performance private cloud, and are ready to face the next level, in entering a global and secure Software-as-a-Service cloud model, where we will have a global centralization with advanced virtual desktops for our engineers worldwide.
During the transition process, we worked closely with Lean-On. Immediately we felt safe with our partner, who has vast experience in cloud carve-out and transition projects. Holistic and customized support was provided throughout the entire transition phase.
