Accenture works with Carlsberg on major cloud project
Accenture has helped Carlsberg transition its IT infrastructure to the public cloud. This is part of its SAIL ‘22 strategy, which targets increased digital connectivity between the company and its customers, supply chain and employees.
Accenture and Avanade worked with Microsoft and SAP to help Carlsberg move its core infrastructure and business-critical applications to the Microsoft Azure public cloud in less than six months. The project covered more than 150 terabytes of data on 600 servers and 200 applications that serve more than 10,000 employees, including the whole SAP application suite.
“Transitioning to the cloud is an important part of delivering against our ‘SAIL ‘22’ priorities, where our focus is to drive sustainable and profitable growth and brew for a better today and tomorrow,” says Mark Dajani, CIO and SVP of Global Business Services at Carlsberg Group. “In a highly dynamic and competitive industry, this provides a digital growth platform that enables us to deliver exceptional services and experiences of what we believe is the best beer in the world.”
“We always pursue perfection, and the combination of Accenture’s experience in digital transformation services and industry knowledge and Avanade’s experience in implementing Microsoft technology has provided us with a leading-edge intelligent platform that is critical as we strive to become a truly digital business. Moving from a physical on-premise IT infrastructure to a managed public cloud environment is a big and challenging transition, and Accenture helped us do it quickly and as seamlessly as possible.”
