Business Objectives

Recent years have brought dynamic development and growth of sales in the European market for Nicols Group. Poland has become a strategic market. With the increase in financial results, there appeared increased needs for IT infrastructure, including data center resources. The ultimate catalyst for the project turned out to be the internal transformation of the company, including migration of the Nicols headquarters to a new office in Nivelles, Belgium. On this occasion there was a need to find a new server room. Comarch’s offering turned out to be the most competitive one.

The project has three main goals:

  • Reducing overall IT costs
  • Making new solution more scalable
  • Shortening the reaction time of the IT

What Were The Advanatage of Comarch?

The most important success factor was Comarch engagement from the beginning of the sales process. Our experience and previous successes in the processes of large migrations to the Comarch cloud - not just a single application, but even complete IT environments - have proven to be our strong advantages. In addition, our customer has highly evaluated our substantive preparation and organization.

After several months of collaboration, the customer wanted to build Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) and wanted to negotiate the terms of the transition from IaaS to PaaS service models. After two extra months we agreed on all the technical and financial conditions. In the first place, Comarch would build a DRC solution and in the next few months, the customer would gradually implement PaaS service.
