Cloud Assessment and Migration for Global Beverages Company

This case study explains how Incepta Solutions helped a global spirit and wine company with Cloud Assessment and Migration.

Our client,  a global premium brand of wine and spirit, needed an assessment of its current infrastructure for cloud readiness and migration to the Azure Cloud environment. The fortune 500 company was struggling because of rigid and legacy infrastructure and siloed data sources.

Incepta was selected for this crucial cloud migration assessment project due to our expertise in Cloud Migration services, Asset Management, and Infrastructure upgrades.

Cloud Assessment and Migration

  • Implement Azure Cloud application services infrastructure
  • Manage the existing assets for the ordering application
  •  Provide a cloud database setup in the Azure environment to ensure connectivity among various systems

The scope of the project was to implement the client’s Azure Cloud application services infrastructure, manage the existing assets for the ordering app, and provide a cloud database set up in the Azure environment to ensure connectivity among the client’s ordering app on the cloud, JD Edwards ERP, and Exceedra trade promotion systems. The high-level scope included

  • Analyze and assess existing AppDev infrastructure
  • Analyze current processes in the AppDev team
  • Provide recommendations for future infrastructure roll-out
  • Implement the cloud database for the ordering application on Azure cloud and decommission the on-premise database 

  • Global wine and spirit brand
  • Has over 240 premium products
  • Important industry player in over 160 countries

The global company is an industry-leading wine and spirits company with 240 premium products available in over 160 countries.

  • Legacy Systems
  • Numerous siloed data sources scattered across
  • Rigid and unscalable infrastructure
  • Poor quality inconsistent data

The client was facing business challenges due to its legacy infrastructure and siloed data sources scattered over its system. This prevented them from adapting agile processes,  they could not scale easily and the data quality was poor and inconsistent.

Migration to Flexible & Scalable Azure Cloud

At Incepta Solutions, we understand how vital it is to choose the right infrastructure to connect other platforms, integrate services, and obtain real-time data.

To assess the current infrastructure, Incepta performed a Cloud Readiness assessment first.  To address the client’s requirements, our team implemented the Azure application services infrastructure and managed the existing assets for the ordering application. We provided a cloud database setup in the Azure cloud environment to ensure smooth connectivity between the client’s ordering application on the cloud and the JDE and Exceedra systems.
