Energy company RWE is working with Microsoft partner Avanade to implement a new Microsoft Azure-based infrastructure and Office 365. The new system aims to help the firm compete in the changing energy industry.
RWE needed to replace part of its existing IT infrastructure as part of its asset swap with energy supplier E.ON.
“The energy sector is undergoing significant disruption,” says Mark Corley, UKI resources group lead at Avanade. “Companies like RWE understand that one-off digital innovation initiatives aren’t enough to ensure their ongoing survival in the face of change. Avanade’s end-to-end digital innovation capabilities enable us to partner with clients like RWE from strategy through to implementation, without hand-offs. We are proud to have been selected by RWE to help accelerate the digitalisation of its business and provide the best possible workplace experience for its employees.”
Avanade is working with Accenture to migrate RWE’s 17,000 users to Office 365 and Azure Active Directory by the end of 2020.
