A leading automotive OEM was merging two business units’ IT operations. As a part of this consolidation, a data center migration program was established to migrate all applications to new infrastructure, improve performance, and build a technology foundation to support the future.

Two Roads was involved in the program from inception all the way through sunsetting both data centers. The team played a key role in structuring the program, managing the 200+ dedicated personnel, and ensuring execution was completed on time and within budget. Because the company was moving out of both buildings, the program had an aggressive 2-year schedule to complete the migration.

Strong governance, planning, change control, and constant communications were key to managing the complexity of such a large program. The results were 100+ core services built in the new next-generation data center, 400+ applications migrated, 220+ applications modernized, and two data centers sunset on time and within the original established budget.

The Outcome

  • Consolidated 2 production data centers into a single next-generation data center on time and on budget
  • Migrated 400+ applications while modernizing over 50% of the portfolio
  • Reduced operating costs and business risk with technical debt remediation, improved disaster recovery, and improved security
