Additionally, their move to SAP on Azure was a catalyst in moving to the cloud.

With 25,000 employees globally, and 1,500 employees in EMEA, this Tier 1 company chose Colt to move to a cloud-based ecosystem, which therefore also allowed improved productivity and global collaboration across their business.
