Pradeep Kar, Chairman & MD
A large global bank wanted to create a unified architecture for application development & production services in order to move to an “IT-as-a-Service” model leveraging cloud as a delivery model. However, the key challenges they faced were in leveraging existing investments in traditional IT infrastructure and ensuring that existing business workflows for provisioning the traditional IT infrastructure are automated in the new Hybrid IT world. Microland delivered key benefits to the customer through integration, customization and automation services. These include , Service Catalogue based, “Anything-asa- Service (XaaS)” model: Examples being Database as a Service and Network as a Service. Agility for IT staff , another benefit enabled the client to provision development, test and production environments (and not just infrastructure) on the fly.

“As a trusted partner in the hybrid IT journey, we are enabling enterprises globally, to adopt the new IT services delivery paradigm,” says MS Rangaraj, Chief Innovation Officer, Microland.

While the building blocks come from various channels such as the technology stack vendor, cloud service provider or traditional IT, Microland integrates, customizes and automates these blocks to create a tailor made solution for enterprises. Once the solution is in place, the company helps enterprises to operationalise and manage their hybrid IT environments. Microland believes that each enterprise is unique and therefore should be the architect of their own hybrid IT journey. Hence, each solution the company builds for their client is unique and customized to address their business imperatives.

Microland’s portfolio of hybrid IT services includes advisory, deployment, multi-sourcing service integration, customization, automation, operationalization and management. The advisory service comprises of hybrid IT strategy development and roadmap creation through readiness assessment services.
If the customer already has a strategy in place, Microland helps design, build, architect, operationalize and manage it for them.

“Big organizations already have their established enterprise governance, compliance and security policies built over years. Ability to adopt them to the new IT service paradigm is a key imperative as enterprises transform,” adds Pradeep Kar, Founder, Chairman and Managing Director, Microland. Today, the company has successfully enabled the transformation journey for some of the large global organizations who have adopted hybrid IT. In the clients’ transformation journey to the hybrid IT world, Microland has always ensured that service assurance and governance are not compromised.

Due to its systems integration roots and pedigree in IT infrastructure management services, Microland can leverage its knowledge of the IT infrastructure layer, operations workflows and the cloud solutions that are essential in the Hybrid IT services model. Moreover, Microland believes “Operationalization” is key in ensuring that the implemented technology/ solutions is scalable and manageable when it is actually rolled out; this is a critical element in deployment of new world solutions, that usually gets missed out during the initial proof of concept and design stages.

The knowledge and expertise in cloud solutions is strengthened by partnering with industry giants like Citrix, VMware, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and Eucalyptus. All this is feasible as the company transformed itself to suit the need of today’s new enterprise world - Hybrid IT World.
