Customer Success Story: Financial Services
October 30, 2019
This leading global investment bank and advisory firm – with 19 geographic locations around the world – assists their clients in achieving their strategic financial goals by providing innovative, unconflicted advice to a diverse client base. Supporting this business objective are two primary data centers, each with its own disaster recovery site, along with 15 remote offices. The firm provisioned the primary data center’s IT infrastructure five to six years ago and added IT infrastructure for the remote offices as they came online. The firm’s growth over the years had reached the performance and capacity limits of its no waging IT infrastructure. The firm’s VP of Infrastructure knew the firm needed a highly scalable, secure IT infrastructure designed to manage and improve security, data access and overall availability across multiple locations for the next five years or more. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) introduced the firm to CPP Associates based on its strong reputation as a vendor-agnostic solution provider with an inspired vision for the future and strong technical expertise. After some in-depth strategic conversations, the firm accepted CPP’s offer to perform an “Infrastructure Anywhere Assessment” (IAA). CPP evaluated the current infrastructure and made solution-neutral recommendations to refresh the infrastructure with an On-Premise Software-Defined Solution featuring HPE hardware and software.
