QSC AG introduces multi-cloud at IKB Leasing
- IKB Leasing, now known as Pan European Asset Company (PEAC), presses ahead with digitization strategy
- Maximum flexibility and security by combining private cloud for traditional applications and public cloud for desktop services
- Solution meets state-of-the-art sector-specific security standards
Cologne, 5. June 2018 – PEAC Germany, Hamburg, has commissioned QSC AG to migrate its existing IT landscape to a multi-cloud environment and thus promote the further development in the company’s IT strategy. This digitization strategy is closely related to the company’s future positioning as the continental European arm of PEAC Finance.
In future, the company will procure all traditional IT applications, such as SAP LISA, Data Warehouse and sector-specific applications, centrally from the Pure Enterprise Cloud at QSC AG. Microsoft Office applications will be provided from the global Microsoft Office 365 Cloud. As a certified Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) for Microsoft, QSC will see to integrating and managing the Microsoft Cloud. The two different and autonomous Cloud environments will be amalgamated by implementing a uniform role and authorisation concept that supports IKB Leasing’s current requirements and also forms the basis for new, modern service and security mechanisms. As the central contact partner for PEAC Finance, QSC will orchestrate and be responsible for the multi-cloud IT operations model.
Furthermore, by linking PEAC’s national and international locations with a high-performance, secure network, QSC will ensure genuine end-to-end quality for the IT services from the data centre to the workplace.
“As part of our planned realignment as PEAC Finance, we aim to digitize most aspects of our services. For this, we need an IT partner able to work with us in a partnership of equals. QSC convinced us with its exceptional expertise in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud solutions and its very high security standards”, comments Dr. Thomas Söhlke, Managing Director of PEAC.
Adds Jürgen Hermann, CEO of QSC AG: “We are very proud to have convinced PEAC with our services. After all, its standards in terms of modernity and security were and are very high.”
The cooperation was substantially assisted by the management and technology consultants at Sopra Steria Consulting. One of Germany’s top business transformation partners, this company specialises in successfully accompanying complex transformation projects addressing business-critical challenges.
