Eighty20 Solutions was engaged by large vendor in the retail industry to improve scalability and reduce costs across its network by moving from their current on-premises hosting environment to strategic cloud environments. 

The Challenge

Our client wanted to improve scalability and reduce costs by moving their applications and data from their current on-premises hosting environment to strategic cloud environments. They needed to migrate all their workloads from ageing on-premises hosting environments to enable them to exit their current data centre.

The team included 16 Eighty20 team members embedded with the 54-member program team. We provided program management, leadership and architectural oversight, spanning the following activities:

The Outcome

We helped establish standard patterns and practices that utilised the strengths of the individual cloud platform. These were then automated through standardised CI / CD pipelines and automated lifecycle management processes.

Working with many work streams in a complex environment, we ensured the right solution was delivered for the best possible Return on Investment (ROI) and business benefits.
