Beiersdorf Shared Services

 

From head to toe – Beiersdorf is virtualising its global server environment using VMware’s vCloud Suite

Beiersdorf Shared Services (BSS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Beiersdorf AG and as a partner of Beiersdorf, BSS shares its expertise with the entire Group. In particular, the BSS operates the entire IT and accounting of the company. In order to respond more quickly to requests from its parent company, the BSS decided to virtualize the entire server landscape at its headquarters in Hamburg and at 80 locations around the world. The biggest challenge was the virtualization of business-critical applications. Today, however, the BSS is able to reduce costs and speed up processes.

“IT is nowadays resulting in costs savings for us since a large number of processes can be accelerated. Investment in IT is enabling us to respond to business queries and to our competitors’ projects within one to two days – and not within four to six weeks as in the past.”

— Andreas Liehmann, Manager Server Platform, Beiersdorf Shared Services

The Hut Group

 

Hut Group deploys VMware vCloud Air for more scalable, flexible and secure environment

The Hut Group is the UK’s leading, multi-website online retailer with rapidly growing international operations. The company’s websites are a crucial part of the business and need to be kept up and running at all times. The Hut Group is therefore using vCloud Air to make sure it’s infrastructure is flexible and scalable – giving the IT team the ability to get more capacity during peak periods and to reduce it down during quieter periods, so that customers have the same responsiveness and experience even when the sites are at their busiest.

“(DRaaS) enables us to grow faster than we are growing currently, and really enables us to be more efficient and flexible in what we are doing. Instead of having to keep two different data centers up and running, to ensure there is an up or down, or cold or hot data center, this enables us to ensure that it is the efficiency that we gain by only having to do the exercise once.”

— Schalk Van der Merwe, IT Director, The Hut Group

Audionova

 

Virtual IT Platform foundation for faster growth at Audionova

VMware vSOM enables Audionova to make optimum use of its virtual platform and quickly adapt to new requirements. The company also uses VMware Horizon Mirage to roll out upgrades and new software to its 1,300 shops across Europe. Audionova now has a full understanding of its virtual environment and can therefore respond quickly to new developments. In addition to providing extra effciency, this approach also yields significant savings on hardware and management costs. Despite this central IT approach, the company is able to roll out software and updates for all of its shops in Europe in one go. This means that everyone within the organization is working with the latest version and that customers can rest assured the hearing tests are reliable and that their hearing aids are always optimally configured.

TiAuto (Pty) Ltd.

 

Full visibility, improved performance and ability to further sweat IT assets

TiAuto was looking for a system that would enable it to deploy a charge back functionality across all of its seven divisions. It needed a system that would give the IT team a view of what each department was running, how much hardware they were using and in short summarize if the systems / servers it had in place were in fact healthy. After rolling out vSOM, the company had an instant view of its some 120 virtual machines and the benefits to the business were immediate as the TiAuto IT department could instantly identify which machines hadn’t been provisioned properly as well as where there was fault or capacity in its systems which could then be optimized.

“vSOM has been fantastic for the business as we can now benefit from adding more virtual machines on what we already have as we can resize our existing environment without running the risk of oversizing the storage. From a management perspective IT can now provide our executive team a visual report that shows them exactly how much hardware we use across the group. It goes as granular as defining what each hardware component is doing and in turn we can justify what we need and can qualify each infrastructural investment.”

— David van Vuuren, Group ICT Manager, TiAuto

KBC

 

A Trusted Advisor from VMware Professional Services Supports KBC

KBC needed a single point of contact to help support the careful planning of their virtualization program and to help maintain their mission-critical production systems. The Bank considers it important that there is a resource supporting the technology they purchase. They require access to Product Management and other VMware resources with someone on hand to guide them and make sure they have a voice within VMware. To meet these needs, they invested in the Technical Account Manager (TAM) Service.

“As a finance company, we want to know what we’re running in our data centers. Our VMware specialist goes deep into the VMware technologies, and we don’t want to make any compromises. When we are stuck in our design, when we have issues in test or production, when we want information on new tools or have new ideas, our TAM is our advocate, our helper and our solution provider.”

— Walter Adriaens, IT manager, KBC

California Natural Resources Agency

 

California Natural Resources Agency Gains Agility Across Multiple Agencies Through a Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a large state agency is harnessing virtualization to do more with less and remain agile and efficient.

“We consider VMware a strategic partner. We basically only want to work with business partners. We don’t want to work with vendors, because we don’t need someone to sell us something and walk away. VMware has been hand-in-hand with us for this whole journey.”

“From looking at VMware, virtualization is the standard. If you don’t take it on, then you really won’t be able to respond to business needs. When the official IT organization becomes obsolete, there are going to be ad-hoc IT organizations and those would become the norm. If you want to be relevant, you have to use every tool set that you can to provide the business needs.”

— Michael Hom, Data Center Chief in the IT InfrastructureServices Branch for the California Department of Water Resources

Columbia Sportswear

 

Columbia Sportswear Gets Extreme on Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a major sportswear company has leveraged virtualization and hybrid cloud to reap substantial business benefits.

“With our business changing and growing as quickly as it is, and with us doing business and selling directly to consumers in over a hundred countries around the world, our data centers have to be adaptable. Our data and our applications have to be secure and available, no matter where we are in the world, whether you're on network or off-premises. The SDDC has been a game-changer for us. It’s allowed to take those technologies, host them where we need them, and with whatever cost configuration makes sense, whether it’s in the cloud or on-premises, and deliver the solutions that our business needs”

— Tim Melvin, Director of Global Technology Infrastructure, Columbia Sportswear

NX Systems

 

NX Systems talks about its journey with VMware so far and the solutions it is looking forward to deploying from the latest software-defined data center suite of products.

“The vSphere 6 announcement is very exciting for me – it provides two new features which we’ve been looking forward to for years – long distance vMotion and multi-core Fault Tolerance. VMware’s tighter integration between product components with vRealize automation operations and the SDDC are going to allow us to have a much more hands-off approach for the care and feeding of our infrastructure.”

— Matthew Sherian, Head of Engineering, NX Systems

NX Systems

 

NX Systems’ journey to the Software-Defined Data Center

NX Systems discusses how it has improved the flexibility of its infrastructure to handle more transactions by using VMware vCloud Suite. The company has increased the number of transactions processed per second from two to over two hundred.

“When you have a team of four to five hundred in other companies, our department was about sixty. Obviously we had to do the economies of scale and scale it out properly. However, where before the stress of the organisation was on the IT department keeping up with the sales team’s direction, their promises, with management targets, etc. now that we are focused on the technology and we have brought it up to speed, we are lowering much of our involvement on operations and doing much more of the R&D, optimisation and re-factoring.”

— Jonathan Bowman, CTO, NX Systems

Royal Academy of Music

 

The Royal Academy of Music (RAM) needed to reduce its IT spending and the management burden of its physical IT estate, while providing more flexible ways of working for students and staff and freeing up more space for music practice and tutoring. The Royal Academy of Music selected VMware Horizon View and VMware vSphere to virtualize its servers and desktop PCs.

“Space is of a premium at the Royal Academy of Music, so we were under huge pressure to reduce the amount of space we were using for IT. Using VMware’s Horizon View was the obvious solution. The technology has had an instant impact and by virtualizing our desktop PCs, we have been able to free up two music rooms – 212 hours a week of practice and tuition time for our musicians - while allowing flexible working for staff and students and reducing our IT hardware bill by over £50k. The combination of a server and desktop virtualization project has also freed up a tremendous amount of time to focus on more strategic IT projects rather than hardware and software maintenance and troubleshooting.”

— Duncan Malthouse-Hobbs, Head of Technology, Royal Academy of Music

Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware Professional Services to Bring Virtualization to Danish Health Care System. Working closely with a VMware Technical Account Manager, the region is making effective use of VMware Horizon View to support 25,000 clinicians. Region H had used VMware server solutions for several years, and they wanted to extend the benefits of virtualization out into the organization with a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). In particular, it wanted to give its 25,000 clinicians—who are on the front line of delivering care— fast, easy, and secure access to the IT systems they need to do their jobs. To do so, Region H decided to implement VMware Horizon View for desktop virtualization.

“The TAM felt like someone who was very much ‘our man’ and looked at things from our point of view. And this saved time and effort for us.”

— Morten Møllegaard, lead technical project manager working with Region H

Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care Solution helps improve patient care in Region Hovedstaden, the Capital Region of Denmark. By the mid-2000s, the Danish government regislated for healthcare providers to improve an impossible situation where legacy IT systems was negatively impacting patient care. Region H tasked its IT department with providing 25,000 healthcare workers with an e ective, fast and agile workspace, accessible from any device, anywhere. Out of a number of possible solutions, they chose the VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care Solution, leading to time savings, improved productivity, and reduced support costs.

“We chose VMware for this project because of its product and engagement flexibility, which we saw in the pilot phase. This has lived up to our expectations during the production implementation.”

— Morten Møllegaard, lead technical project manager

Bank Audi

 

Bank Audi Bridges the Business/IT Gap with Help from VMware Professional Services. Business leaders sometimes see IT as a “black box”—a dauntingly complex function that is supposed to serve business objectives but often has its own agenda. And IT leaders sometimes find business goals to be disconnected from the realities of limited resources, budget, and staff. However, working closely with VMware Professional Services, Bank Audi found a way to bridge the gap between business and IT and create new business advantages.

“We definitely feel that we have a trusted relationship with VMware to start a long term journey to the bank we’re aspiring to build.”

— Danny Dagher, CIO, Bank Audi

VMware Horizon View has enabled us to deliver flexible working and mobility for all staff, giving them access to the same applications and information as they have in the office, but from anywhere, on any device, as and when they may need to use them.”

— Simon Thunder, Head of IT at the Premier League
