Managing global migrations to the cloud fast without disruption to business
Bezons, 15 July 2015
— Atos, an international leader in digital services, today announced successful completion of a project with Coca-Cola Hellenic, one of the largest bottlers and vendors of The Coca-Cola Company's products in the World, and the largest based in Europe.
Under the contract with Coca-Cola Hellenic, an international team of Atos migrated the mailbox system for 25,000 users from in-house Lotus Notes to Microsoft Office 365. The project was delivered on time and on budget following the proven methodologies and expertise of combined on and off-shore internal team, together with the cooperation from Coca-Cola Hellenic staff.
"This was an important project for us, leveraging the collaboration of our organization to a new level taking advantage of the flexible charging model", said Chavdar Iglev at Coca-Cola Hellenic. "Atos expertise was indispensable for achieving our very ambitious plan for migration to the new platform smoothly without disruptions to our business."
Following the successful completion of the project Atos is also launching its new Microsoft Office 365 integrated services to migrate desktop services for global organisations to the cloud fast and efficiently without affecting daily operations.
Microsoft's Office 365, which integrates Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Lync Online and now Skype for Business into a homogeneous cloud service is the market leader in software-as-a-service delivery of collaborative and office suites, a market which is expected to reach 33% penetration by 2015.
