Hybrid Cloud Migration for On-Premise system
The client, an established legal firm with presence in Singapore and Malaysia, runs its Content Management Application, Client and Contracts Management, Finance and HR system on premise.
Managing IT infrastructure in-house was a pain point as it has distracted management attentions from other important businesses. The need to consolidate the IT resources and down size the IT infrastructure became apparent when the firm decided to move to a new office.
