"Business users are thrilled with the results. They are able to run reports faster, and more importantly, productively utilize their time for analysis and better decision making"

Mark Palmer, IS Program Manager, Frucor Beverages

The customer

Grocon is the largest privately owned development, construction and investment management company in Australia. It specializes in large scale projects, be they commercial office spaces for premium clients such as ANZ and Freehills, or Public Private Partnerships such as the new Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre for the Federal and Victorian Governments.

Grocon’s core values of safety, sustainability, community and innovation drive everything it does and are demonstrated through projects such as Pixel in Melbourne, currently considered the greenest building in Australia.

The challenge

Grocon wanted to replace its existing ageing legacy infrastructure with a more innovative approach to delivering applications in order to reduce costs, improve productivity and increase performance.

The solution

Grocon partnered with Fujitsu to migrate its existing physical server infrastructure to virtualized machines hosted in the cloud. The new cloud platform makes it easy to provision new applications in a secure environment.

The benefit

  • Costs have decreased by 50 percent
  • Virtual machines can be easily deployed via an intuitive user-interface
  • The utility-based billing model enables Grocon to only have to budget for the resources that they require
  • The solution can scale to meet the company’s changing needs as it grows
