Challenge

As part of their separation from the parent company, the Materials company was in the process of rebuilding and planning for a cloud migration of their entire shared infrastructure.

A large part of the migration was an aging Citrix server farm that offered the company employees access to several legacy applications worldwide. The company wanted a collaborative partner who could effectively build and design a new Citrix environment from the ground up while meeting their security requirements. In addition, the company had a stringent budget, with tight deadlines, and partnerships already locked in with other vendors.

Solution

The SSI technology consultant team was able to quickly deliver the desired proof of concept to the company which could still run their key legacy applications.

As soon as the project was initiated, SSI was able to work with all of the company’s IT vendors in order to deploy a scalable Hosted Citrix XenApp infrastructure that connected to the company’s entire datacenter.

Results

In less than three months, their new environment was well-equipped to continue running all of the company’s needed legacy applications while maintaining strict security protocols with authentication through the existing the company’s Microsoft Marketplace. The solution was both streamlined, and easily accessible, by every company’s location across the globe.

Further, SSI became a strategic partner in delivering hosted Citrix Cloud services by providing the expertise to deploy a Citrix server farm that could deliver the majority of the company’s legacy applications to over 1000 employees worldwide.
