Client background and business context

  • Client profile: Global leader in innovative lighting products, as well as intelligent and connected lighting solutions.
  • Project: Migration to Azure IaaS and the incorporation of Office 365 services within the new infrastructure.


Our client decided to upgrade their data centre and bring it to the same level of smart and efficient solutions as the rest of their business. The company was looking to move away from the complicated three-stage SharePoint 2013 environment running on the premises at the time and to migrate the infrastructure to Azure IaaS, while incorporating Office 365 services within the new infrastructure.

To this end, the company needed a partner with the necessary know-how and experience to design the entire plan for creating and executing a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Carefully analysing the situation at hand, together with our partner, we decided on the following objectives for our collaboration:

  • Redesigning the data infrastructure in order for it to be more efficient and effective to work with – to increase working speed and flexibility, boost team productivity, and continuously ensure the performance and reliability level that their customers had come to expect from the company.
  • Migrating the current infrastructure to Azure IaaS
  • Incorporating Office 365-managed services within this new infrastructure
  • Ensuring a seamless experience of working within the resulting hybrid cloud

Our approach

We accompanied our partner every step of the way on their journey towards efficient and modern data infrastructure by:

  • Preparing the data within the three-stage SharePoint 2013 environment our client was working with at the time for the upcoming change
  • Designing the architecture of the new and improved infrastructure according to the project and business objectives
  • Carrying out the configuration of a hybrid cloud that would comply with the client’s business development programme.
  • Migrating the infrastructure to Azure IaaS and incorporated Office 365-managed services.
  • Developing an intuitive, user-friendly monitoring concept that would provide the client with a boost in productivity.
  • Ensuring ongoing support to ensure the client maintained their high ranking.
