NAPERVILLE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A leading firm in the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) industry successfully went live on a global Oracle Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution with AST as its cloud migration partner.
In late 2016, the firm sought a new provider to lift and shift its existing systems to a cloud platform. AST was the successful partner against prominent competitors in a global, high-pressure sales environment. AST offered its expert cloud advisory services in order to present a migration roadmap, cloud security and compliance framework, and capacity planning.
The firm operates on a highly-customized ERP system, and its key objective was to consolidate, standardize and migrate its global operations to a state-of-the-art cloud infrastructure with scalability and predictable costs. Given the challenges and limitations around traditional import-export migration techniques, as well as limited expertise and know-how on disruption-free migration techniques in the market, the firm chose to partner with AST to leverage AST’s cloud expertise and close alignment with Oracle’s platform strategy. AST helped the customer deploy a modern Cloud Platform and performed an efficient lift-and-shift to migrate existing on-premise applications to the cloud with zero business disruption.
“It is great to see a team work together well in a controlled manner to deliver a complete programme, with minimal disruption to the business,” says the customer’s Executive Vice President of IT. AST provided a very clear direction, along with a framework and timelines, for this journey through Service Transition, IaaS Platform Migration, Transformation, Stabilization, Standardization, and Globalization.
AST continues to work with the customer to provide application management services, with plans to streamline DevOps and provide SLA-driven IT Service Management to assist the customer in realizing a fully OpEx model.
