Sigma Group Enters a New Era of Service Delivery with Hybrid IT

CloudStories

 

Sigma DataCenterSigma DataCenterCloud is changing people’s expectations for speed and flexibility in IT. Customers of Sigma Group, a French hosting and managed services provider, made it clear that they wanted more visibility into and control over provisioning their workloads. These small and medium-size retail, insurance, and IT services businesses also expressed interest in pay-as-you-go pricing.

To deliver this flexibility and scalability, Sigma partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to migrate to cloud, deploying a hybrid cloud that does double duty as an internal efficiency tool. HPE Helion Cloud Service Automation and HPE Operations Orchestration enable Sigma to spin up new customer infrastructure more quickly and integrate it with existing IT investments.

Reaping the benefits of process automation                                                     

The HPE solutions give Sigma unprecedented agility, thanks to their ability to automate and orchestrate the provisioning of new infrastructure. Working with HPE Software Services, Sigma slashed the time needed to deploy a virtual machine, from 2 days to 13 minutes. Sigma also reduced the staff hours required for that task, from 4 hours to only about 15 minutes.

These productivity gains enabled Sigma to remove network engineers entirely from the infrastructure provisioning process—formerly a manual procedure performed with traditional IT. The system admin team can now initiate and monitor the automated provisioning tasks, freeing up engineers to focus on higher-value activities.

With the cloud environment now up and running, Sigma plans to deploy a portfolio of four new services in 2016. Developed in conjunction with HPE Software Services, these new services will enable customers to control their own environments through a web portal.

Powerful service management

Sigma chose to partner with HPE primarily because of its superior lifecycle management capabilities and software services expertise. The ability to migrate customers’ existing VMware® resources also inspired Sigma to select HPE over VMware®, Cisco, IBM, and Microsoft®.
