In a recently published case study, IDC has highlighted TCS’ work with hybrid cloud provider NetApp on an infrastructure transformation project for energy company AGL.
AGL is a 180-year-old integrated energy company that delivers gas, electricity, and telecommunications services to residential, business, and wholesale customers across Australia. AGL wanted to migrate all its applications to a public cloud by 2022 for storage optimization. By doing so, it also aimed to improve energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint through less dependency on data centers.
AGL partnered with TCS and NetApp to build a digital core with cloud as the unifying fabric. The modernization has helped AGL move away from on-premise to cloud-based storage to become a sustainable enterprise.
In the case study, IDC highlights how TCS’ with a decade-old partnership with AGL, leveraged deep contextual knowledge of the client’s business to provide significant contribution to the project’s success.
“…TCS could come up with ideas for a solution to pitch to AGL. The infrastructure includes the hardware and software layer being transformed by TCS and on which they build, run, and manage services,” according to the case study. “This allowed AGL to initiate the project storage optimization. Solution design and architecture were done closely in collaboration with TCS and NetApp. Although the project was managed by AGL, it was assisted by TCS and NetApp. It is highly unlikely that the project would have come together and been executed so successfully without this degree of collaboration.”
Achieve scalability, flexibility, and attain higher efficiencies.
The partnership has paid off well for AGL. In the IDC case study, Dr. Glen Duncan, associate research director, Datacenter, IDC, says:
AGL is now able to enjoy all the benefits of cloud including scalability, flexibility, and consumption-based pricing models that have resulted in significant savings for the company.
