Key Challenges

The customer has a diverse IT infrastructure. We were requested to create and implement a unified IT infrastructure to minimize maintenance costs and provide scalability.

All main business applications were required to be migrated to a resilient Datacenter, also to provide migration to the latest version of OS.

IT services were required to be standardized to ensure transparency and predictability of IT infrastructure costs.

Additionally one of the success measures was to increase sales through dealer’s networks using an Internet portal for mobile clients.

Goals and objectives

  • Our main goal was to assist in transition of hardware devices and servers to datacenters in UK.
  • Due to a huge amount of equipment it required 2 years to complete migration. During this period our engineers has stabilized the existing customer infrastructure (CMO) by reducing the service outage significantly.
  • We have implemented IT infrastructure standards to minimize maintenance costs and provide infrastructure scalability.
  • A second goal was to establish a reliable and effective team to provide 2nd and 3rd lines of support.
  • Besides transition and transformation tasks ICL Services provided consultancy for IT infrastructure planning and developing of new IT solutions based on customer requests.
  • There was no a service interruption during migration. The network infrastructure in the new datacenters has been redesigned to reflect all customer requirements, including security.
  • To provide a reliable connection for remote offices we have reconfigured the MPLS connection.
  • New standard IT infrastructure was based on a VMware virtualization solution and has been implemented by our specialists.
  • To unify users` workplaces we have implemented a solution based on Citrix and App Sense technologies.
