Companies around the world are starting to think about developing and launching cloud strategies,
As General Manager of the Microsoft Open Solutions Group, I take part in conversations with many companies about this critical element, and how we can help them by identifying solutions that address the challenges of managing a mixed technology environment. One company we worked with recently is a leading Austrian music and entertainment retailer called LIBRO.
Like many retailers, LIBRO’s data centers contain a broad mix of technology platforms that were developed by different vendors. The company was serving the Austrian market through over 200 locations, while rapidly expanding into surrounding European markets. This growth was taking its toll on LIBRO’s IT infrastructure.
