Fortune 150 Electrical Utility - Cloud Infrastructure Case Study

CloudGenera Helps Electrical Utility Establish a Strategy Around Their Cloud Infrastructure

Clients need help demystifying all the variability and complexity associated with decisions around their cloud infrastructure. In this case study an electrical utility were looking for a repeatable and prescriptive process for transitioning their business to the cloud.

Use Case:

Customer leveraged CloudGenera software to assist in evaluating the business case for public and private cloud. 

They had received RFI and RFP responses from 6 cloud providers but could not figure out how to map what the providers offered to their business needs.

Business Outcomes:

  • The client was able to downselect from 6 potential providers to 2 primary and 1 exception only provider of cloud services
  • Business case developed to retire pSeries environments and migrate to Intel (p Series represents 40% of the budget today but only supports 5 % of the customer’s workloads) 
  • The business case was developed for a hybrid cloud strategy based upon decision framework developed inside the CloudGenera platform.

 

Quote from Cloud Infrastructure Architect:

“Our cloud RFI stalled at the point where we tried to map cloud vendor capabilities to our own internal business requirements.  The pricing was confusing, and the business case for transformation was unclear.  CloudGenera’s software made things much simpler by showing side-by-side comparatives of vendor capabilities across service level, security, technology, and cost mapped to our business requirements.  Using CloudGenera saved us months of manual analysis and trial and error.”
