Capacity shares four system update stories making headlines today.
Orange Poland migrates to Teradata Vantage on Google Cloud
Orange Poland has migrated its core reporting and analytical processes to Teradata Vantage on Google Cloud.
The firm says it selected Teradata’s service-as-a-cloud offering as a key first step in its strategic migration to the cloud last year.
Benefits that the migration will bring include increased flexibility, fast time-to-market, risk limitation and optimised ROI, the company says.
“Cloud enablement is a key part of our strategy, and proper technology choices are fundamental to transform our business and generate growth,” said Bertrand Grèzes-Besset, chief information officer for Orange Poland.
“Big data and analytics are leading the way, and we can now leverage the elasticity and agility of the cloud. It was absolutely vital that we chose the right partner to help with our first step.
“We did evaluate several options and Teradata proved to be the best architecture fit, with the least risk and the best ROI.”
To support the migration, Orange Poland also sought the help of Accenture – a company that has collaborated with the telco’s digital transformation strategy for nearly two decades.
