Euvic, by solving the critical problems of Arriva’s IT-services and improving the existing services, helped its client to leverage the new platform. And, as a result, to win more business.
Arriva Sweden* was running its infrastructure from a co-location site in Denmark supporting over 3900 employees and providing services to 170 million customers every year. The on-premises solution was not stable or flexible enough to meet the business and customers’ needs. Due to the progressing digitalization of the transporation business, they needed a partner who could both understand their business needs as well as help them innovate. The aim was to become more competitive in the transportation industry and, at the same time, to build a more stable and flexible IT-environment.
After Euvic was chosen as Arriva’s innovation service provider, we have executed several projects. Our first aim was to solve the most critical problems regarding the flexibility and stability of all IT-services:
→ Arriva decided to move away from the hosted environment in Denmark and make a transition to the cloud. Arriva chose AWS over Azure and other providers because of the breath of services, security, support for developers, and the possibility to leverage existing investments by bringing the existing Microsoft licenses to AWS. With Euvic’s help hundreds of Windows servers were migrated to AWS, including business critical large SQL and Oracle databases in less than 700 hours.
Euvic analysed the existing applications and made them cloud-ready without significantly changing the architecture of the core infrastructure, guaranteeing tangible benefits to Arriva early-on.
→ After a traditional “lift and shift”, we looked into how to improve the existing services. We achieved it, for example, by:
→ When the platform was more stable and flexible, and the users finally had a modern IT-platform to work on, Arriva could concentrate their efforts on enhancing the business value that IT could provide by building a bus- and train-portal with some of the latest technologies regarding IOT and Information solutions, helping them win several tenders for train and bus-contracts.
The move from the hosted environment to AWS and to the Euvic’s managed end-user-platform, including O365, was successful. Arriva achieved:
More importantly, Arriva could leverage the new platform and Euvic’s competence to create new platforms for buses and trains, which helped them win new business. It would have been difficult, if not impossible, with their old solution.
