Data Centre Consolidation Banner image

Challenge

Our client wanted to consolidate its global data centres hosting 1200+ applications whilst moving as many workloads as possible to the Cloud.

For such a major undertaking where Business owners saw only risk and no immediate benefit, the client required change management skills of the highest order to get world-wide internal stakeholders and suppliers on-side.
