Brother International Europe taps Ensono for hybrid cloud

(PresseBox) (London, ) Brother International Europe traces its roots all the way back to 1908, when the Brother Group began providing repair services for sewing machines. But the corporate culture is anything but old school. As Brother has expanded its product line to include printers, fax machines and scanners among other devices and services, the global firm has also deployed core technologies, recognizing they help cultivate new markets and maintain a competitive posture.

Recently, Brother International Europe began working with managed IT and cloud services provider Ensono on a hybrid cloud deployment to migrate its SAP applications onto its private cloud service, Ensono Cloud. The migration includes the electronics firm's production, disaster recovery and testing environments. In addition, Ensono is overseeing the migration of Brother's Sitecore application, which handles web content management and multichannel marketing automation, to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

"We approached Ensono because we needed to migrate mission-critical SAP business applications to the cloud in order to meet evolving, fast-paced customer needs," said Ian Metcalfe, executive director of Brother International Europe. "We were looking to significantly reduce the release lifecycle of new web functionality and procurement strategies."

He added the move was strategic because "infrastructure drives business agility, which is the basis of innovation in any global organization today."

Brother felt Ensono Cloud was the right place for its SAP environment initially, because it provides "the lowest risk migration path," Metcalfe said. With Ensono's help, "we will plan to move these services to the public cloud in the near future."
