Azure-hosted cloud transformation strategy

For more than 30 years, Co. Carlow based Delmec Engineering has been focused on providing innovative solutions and services to the telecommunications industry and specifically to tower infrastructure owners and active network providers.

With global operations in over 40 countries and key centres in Ireland, United Kingdown, Africa, Asia and the Americas; Delmec provide the telecommunications industry with expert structural engineering and support services that facilitate the operation and maintenance of the global telecommunication networks.

Business Critical Legacy Application

The proprietary Telecoms Infrastructure Management System (TIMS), a bespoke and in house designed and managed system is a cloud-based software application that enables Delmec’s bluechip clients to monitor the infrastructure data and documentation, showing capacity, maintenance schedules, contacts, and trouble tickets for tens of thousands of telecommunications masts around the world.

Telecom Infrastructure Management Systems (TIMS) is a critical business application for a data-intensive global organisation, like Delmec Engineering.

The original TIMS infrastructure was hosted offsite and consisted of two physical host servers and a Continuous Data Protection (CDP) storage server for back-ups. Due to the geographic nature of the business coupled with business growth, this proved to be costly, lacked scalability, and resulted in performance issues.

Microsoft Azure-hosted Application

As part of Delmec’s cloud transformation strategy, Enterprise Solutions, a Microsoft Managed Cloud Partner, proposed Microsoft Azure as the platform to host the application.

Enterprise Solutions facilitated the successful migration of the business-critical TIMS application and all application data to Azure. In addition, Microsoft Azure Back Up was provisioned to ensure all data is protected and can be successfully restored.
Delmec is now connected to a cloud platform that gives them the ability to leverage the latest technology, adding value to the business.
Moving to Microsoft Azure has delivered increased scalability on-demand and increased security in a managed environment. Microsoft Azure Disaster Recovery ensures the safety of data and applications whilst the reduction in capital expenditure recognisable cost savings.
Most importantly, the end user experience is vastly improved due to enhanced application performance resulting in increased productivity.

Enterprise Solutions proposed an offering that complemented our cloud transformation objectives and will provide business benefits to the company into the future.
