AlmavivA plans to expand upon Virtustream Enterprise Cloud Success
LONDON, Dec 07, 2017 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Virtustream,
the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business,
today announced the successful completion of the delivery phase of a
hybrid cloud project for AlmavivA, a global technology solutions
provider based in Rome.
AlmavivA needed a consumption-based, pay-as-you-go model for customer
projects of varying sizes that was both financially and operationally
beneficial. Additionally, AlmavivA's customers wanted to test the power
of predictive analytics through SAP HANA Business Warehouse (BW), but
did not want to over commit to a cloud allocation model that would weigh
down their projects with unnecessary costs and administration.
The project was scoped out last year by AlmavivA's CTO, Nunzio Cali, "We
considered many different cloud providers when planning for these
projects," said Cali. "Ultimately Virtustream's consumption-based
billing model, which is driven by Virtustream uVM(R) (Micro-VM)
technology afforded us the flexibility we needed to get our analytics
projects off the ground. Further, we felt strongly that Virtustream's
customer-centric culture was a good match to our own core values."
AlmavivA green lighted three different predictive analytics projects
using the Virtustream(R) Enterprise Cloud and SAP HANA BW.
"These projects are focused on developing predictive maintenance
insights as well as tracking consumer purchasing habits around the
ticketing process for a major railway company," said Smeraldo
Fiorentini, AlmavivA's head of transportation sales.
After successfully completing the delivery phase, the projects are now
ready to move into the production phase. Indeed the design and delivery
phases have gone so well that Cali and the team at AlmavivA are
exploring offering Virtustream's Enterprise Cloud as a part of their
solutions offerings for additional clients and markets.
"AlmavivA is a leading systems integrator for large enterprises in
Italy, and based on growth trends is expanding globally," said Todd
McNabb, SVP, Virtustream. "As enterprises continue to turn to public
cloud to increase the flexibility and cost efficiencies of their mission
critical applications, CIOs will want to lean on experienced solutions
and cloud providers such as AlmavivA and Virtustream who have the
practical knowledge required to realise the true benefits of cloud.
Virtustream has a nearly a decade of experience providing
enterprise-grade cloud services to the world's largest organizations for
their mission-critical applications--combining this in partnership with
AlmavivA's capabilities provides a compelling solution to the market."
