Global Petro-Chemical Manufacturer
Working with a private equity client, lead the technology carve-out from Evonik Industries, establishing a new environment and organization for a global manufacturer of Carbon Black with 26 locations in 13 countries, and over 5,000 employees. Our team of consultants planned, managed and executed a total separation of applications and infrastructure in a 12-month period. We designed and built a Global Wide-Area-Network, built and migrated 4 SAP instances to a new hosting center, established a brand new active directory domain and migrated 5,000 desktops and laptops from the seller’s network to the new network. Our efforts resulted in an early exit from the TSA, providing a $2 million/month savings for our client. The carved-out client retained our services to establish and deploy a global help desk and the migration of desktops from XP to Windows7.
