The Challenge

A global finance organization had grown its infrastructure in a piecemeal fashion over its 65-year history. The company had 12 offices on 4 continents and 6 time zones, with divergent phone, email and obsolete technology in use. While communications were challenging even in a BAU environment, this organization wanted to change from an affinity and non-profit orientation to a company targeting a wider range of investors. They needed streamlined technology across the full technology life cycle to meet these business goals.

Our Approach

The new infrastructure was designed to provide 24/7 support for employees and investors. Coranet worked with the client to plan for the Full IT lifecycle, including creating an international IT standard, infrastructure, design, implementation/integration, and Day 2 Support. We needed to consider how all components, including existing PCs, new phone systems, servers, wireless, and video, would integrate and comply with all local regulations. Coranet worked with best-in-class technology or local area specialists for each office implementation.
