Master Data as a Service: Systrion uses Microsoft Azure for its SaaS offering for Master Data Management
The master data management solutions from the company from Hamburg are being used globally and need a powerful infrastructure. Now a new platform was needed to fulfil the growing customer requirements.
Since its foundation in the year 2000, Systrion AG has been dealing with the management, maintenance and exchange of the data of its customers. Several thousand users depend on smooth operations in order to provide master data either in time for a product launch or to keep the shelves of the retailers filled. Even before the term "cloud" was coined, Systrion had been operating its solutions on several servers in data centers in northern Germany and providing them as full service or SaaS (Software as a Service), as it is today known.
Due to the growth of the company, new technologies and new and innovative products from Systrion, more and more computing resources had to be provided. Additionally, the requirements with regards to dynamic scalability, security and availability were growing rapidly. Last not least, in the last couple of years demands in terms of operations in other time zones and on other continents became more frequent. All of this led to the re-evaluation of the existing architecture and the selection of a service provider who could fulfil all of these requirements from Systrion.
Microsoft wins the selection with Azure
During an intensive selection phase, all of the currently known providers of cloud infrastructure were analysed and ranked. A prove of concept was carried out with the two top ranking providers. In the end, Microsoft and its Azure offering came out on top. Within a short time frame, Systrion then migrated all of its applications to the new platform and is thus again a big step ahead of its competitors. Systrion's customers now benefit from a global service offering with flexible cost models and the highest possible data security. For companies that want to keep their data under German jurisdiction, Systrion offers a solution with Azure in the German Cloud.
"We looked very intensively at a wide bandwidth of topics, to be able to provide our customers a long-term, cost-efficient and highly secure solution. The services and especially the support from Microsoft were excellent. We are now able to grow even faster and fulfil all of our customers' requirements at the same time" says Wolfram Koller, founder and CEO of Systrion AG.
During the ECR Day in Munich this year, the biggest conference of the consumer goods industry in Germany, Systrion will present its solutions. This time Microsoft will also be present at Systrion's booth to answer all questions regarding Azure. Meetings for September 20th and 21st can be reserved in advance under Azure@Systrion.com .
