Beautiful Innovation

When Villeroy & Boch’s time-honored tradition of producing premium, stylish ceramic products met with new customer habits of online shopping, it was a recipe for digital transformation. The company sought to modernize their IT systems to streamline international production and sales of a wide range of products. Villeroy & Boch chose a dedicated cloud solution with VMware partner OVH, a participating provider in the VMware vCloud Air Network, for exceptional performance and a responsive customer experience.

Commerce in the Cloud

Villeroy & Boch needed greater capacity to showcase its wide range of designs, from tableware to bathroom and wellness products, in a number of online channels. Their VMware vCloud Air solution resulted in shorter load times for customers and the flexibility to quickly scale and provision resources at peak demand times. The company is now better prepared to address the challenges—and opportunities—of digitization and globalization.
