IRVINE, Calif., June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Neudesic, a nationally recognized business and technology consulting firm, has partnered with Versum Materials, a leading electronic materials company, to successfully design and deploy an agile cloud-only infrastructure and an effective application management support strategy to connect Versum's global employee base.
Following its spin-off from Air Products in 2016, Versum Materials needed to transition its IT systems from on-premise to a cloud-only model to support a global customer base and long-term growth goals. The company selected Neudesic for both development of a cloud environment as well as implementation and management of SaaS applications. "By partnering with Neudesic's one-stop-shop delivery model of service, support and expertise, we have a proven cloud infrastructure on which to build," said Mike Mayernik, IT operations manager, Versum Materials. "Neudesic managed the infrastructure change without disrupting daily operations."
Neudesic helped Versum Materials deploy and onboard 1900+ employees to Office365 as the ideal SaaS framework to deliver extensive collaboration and user engagement capabilities across the enterprise. "Neudesic's depth of Microsoft expertise helped us identify how a single platform could activate our digital workplace globally, allowing easy implementation of programs such as Exchange for email, OneDrive, SharePoint, Yammer and Skype for Business," said Jeffrey Hornak, director of infrastructure and architecture at Versum.
Now, Neudesic provides ongoing support capabilities with a level one through three global service desk, built from scratch. "Standing up a level one through level three service desk – from scratch, in less than five weeks – is a real challenge. Neudesic met our aggressive goals for transitioning email first, creating standardized workflows from an infinite management perspective. We did not have to recreate the wheel and easily fit right into their proven model," added Mayernik.
"Versum Materials' cloud-only infrastructure resembles a deployment model that we see most smart enterprises thinking about and striving for in the coming months and years. The agility of their cloud systems enables them to deliver extensive capabilities that will better connect their global workforce and grow their enterprise," commented Pete Orologas, vice president, managed services at Neudesic. "Together, and with a strong focus on their end-users, we architected a system that is well managed and positioned for speedy adoption."
Versum Materials is now a cloud-only company positioned to support their vision of transforming their workplace into a highly agile bring-your-own-device environment in which employees can select which form factor works best for them. And they arrived at this destination much faster than they had imagined. "This is an important step in defining ourselves as innovators, not only in terms of our products and services, but in how we operate as a global enterprise," added Hornak. "Both in the cloud-based system design as well as managed services, Neudesic delivered value, expertise and effective solutions for the enterprise we envisioned."
