CWT-SML Logistics IT Systems were distributed and having localized IT. They have also been a target for malware attacks disrupting services. CWT Logistics needed an effective, centralized IT infrastructure that was flexible, adaptive, scalable, and secure. They evaluated the numerous offerings available in the market. Digital Okta, with its interest in customer objectives and understanding of the importance of a strong platform, proved azure to be the perfect fit. Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service was recommended as it offered managed infrastructure and services, while bringing in the desired agility. CWT Logistics concluded that owing to the high cost associated with maintaining the desired security, a public cloud would offer better protection than what can be managed on-premise. Then the migration journey to Microsoft Azure began with Digital Okta as their preferred Partner of Choice
In two months, with support from Digital Okta, CWT Logistics moved all their applications, ranging from Oracle Financials, application servers, Active Directory and File server, and more to Azure. Today, CWT-SML Logistics is on Microsoft Azure.
Post-implementation, IT started playing a leadership role in bringing business initiatives to life. Azure helped reduce the complexity and long lead times in testing and deploying new applications. There was a reduction of the total cost of ownership, due to the lower acquisition costs.
