Premium food manufacturer ensures business continuity with data centre upgrade and extended IT shared services
Our client, a large food manufacturing company, had in recent years become increasingly dependent on IT infrastructure to drive operations, from financial transactions to data replications across farms. With the business expanding, the need for better IT infrastructure became apparent across broad systems integration and a spike in demand for data storage. As such the company needed a stronger business continuity plan that included disaster recovery, backup and remote operations.
The first step in addressing the data centre issues was a brief discovery carried out Pyxle in a set of live onsite discovery workshops with client teams and business analysis consulting. Pyxle afterwards prioritised project streams based on the needs of the business and identified a three-phase data centre migration project.
As a result of this data centre migration, the food manufacturer today enjoys greater infrastructure uptime and enhanced end user experience. The central data server showed drastically improved I/O performance. The database server also saw significant I/O performance gains and the ERP production system saw 32-50% improvement.
