MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT

Driving Business Agility Through Data Center Consolidation and Cloud Transformation


The Challenge

365体育竞猜A global mass-media publishing and entertainment industry company wanted to consolidate data center locations for 19 business units across North America and the United Kingdom. Another goal of the initiative was to identify potential cost savings and performance improvements in the company’s data center operation. In addition, the company needed to improve flexibility and agility to diversify its business interests in markets where time to market and security are critical.


Our Approach

Cognizant conducted a comprehensive assessment on the feasibility of moving to cloud-based solutions and delivering as-a-service (XaaS) models to the company’s distribution and client base. The initial cloud suitability and migration feasibility analysis evaluated  1,800 applications hosted on 2,800 servers spread across 19 business units and 25 locations in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

365体育竞猜Our results recommended migrating approximately 40 percent of the company’s current data center workloads to a combination of co-location and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud facilities. We also suggested a phased migration approach, which Cognizant is now executing.

Dramatic Reductions in Data Center Footprint and Costs

The benefits of moving to a cloud-based infrastructure365体育竞猜 are numerous. The company is significantly lowering time-to-market delivery of its products and services and dramatically reducing its in-house data center footprint. A flexible, scalable architecture also satisfies fluctuating business demand and incorporates built-in security, backup and disaster recovery mechanisms.
