Paulig's agile cloud management model serves rapidly changing business needs


Paulig, adopted a cloud management model that enables business development at the pace required by the digital society. The cloud management model provided by Knowit provides clear rules for operating in the cloud, above all in a secure, agile and business-like manner. With the redesigned cloud environment, Paulig can develop new services and strengthen its responsible business processes.


The cloud transition was built well into the future with a holistic approach

The rapidly digitalizing world has challenged Paulig's IT environment to meet effectively the changing business needs. When the business environments include factory ERP systems, migrating traditional data centres to the cloud, and invoice processing processes, the requirements for cloud solutions are multi-level.

It is important for a multi-business-environment group to secure the life cycle of IT systems and to accelerate the implementation of new system changes and the building of services. The main goal with the new solution is to reinforce competitive advantage in an agile and secure way.

With Knowit's cloud management model, Paulig got a solid foundation for its cloud journey far ahead. At the heart of the cloud environment is the provision of solutions to grow business through a predefined management model. 

With the redesigned cloud environment, Paulig can develop new services and strengthen its responsible business processes. 

The strategic cloud transition

Knowit's cloud architecture expertise allowed for the cloud transition to be carried out so that it was suited to business needs. The scalable cloud management model has given Paulig the lever to react quickly when, for example, a new service needs to be launched fast. 

The cloud transformation was based on Knowit's strategic planning, including infrastructure and architectural design and implementation of Azure environments. Creating a robust strategic foundation was essential for making the cloud transition as controlled as possible far into the future. 

As expected, the biggest strategic changes related to the migration of legacy production systems to Microsoft Azure. Knowit's serverless technology and Platform as a Service helped reduce unnecessary service loads thanks to their scalability.

Pay-as-you-go pricing for services, in turn, provided a clear cost structure. It made pricing for cloud services clear, and they could be locked in at a fixed price for months to come. 

Knowit's role in Paulig's cloud transition was not limited to being the implementer. Knowit's Passionate Support for Azure service provides maintenance and support for cloud management questions. Paulig has 24/7 access to Azure-certified cloud environment experts. 

Sustainable business brings the cloud journey partners together

Migrating the existing systems to the cloud was a reform for Paulig, which with a successful partnership produced lasting results. It was essential for Paulig to find an implementer that would clarify the understanding of the cloud and help build related services in concrete terms. 

There is also a strong common value base for promoting sustainable development, with both Paulig and Knowit committed to UN's sustainable development goals.

Paulig Group is committed to the principles of sustainable development in terms of people, the environment and productivity. Paulig wants to promote sustainable development throughout its international value chain, for example in the sourcing of raw materials. That is why the cloud management model also required capabilities to maintain and develop responsible business processes with even greater determination.
