Keytree helps Karium move to Amazon Web Services Cloud
Godrej is an Indian conglomerate which employ in the region of 30,000 people and operates in sectors as diverse as consumer products, real estate and industrial engineering. Godrej made a strategic decision to divest its UK business in its entirety. As a result, Karium was born – the consumer goods company operating in the health and beauty business. But separating the UK arm of its business meant that Godrej needed to divest, localise and transfer over to Karium all related applications, all of which were in place within the Indian-based organisation.
Keytree were engaged during the commercial negotiations to provide advisory and assurance processes to conclude the divestment and then manage the migration. Keytree provided an essential range of services to make the transition a success including the introduction of a cloud strategy, data centre design, migration project delivery including the technical guidance and leadership to develop and deliver the cutover strategy to minimise the business impact.
Keytree provided Karium with the technical direction and architectural assistance for all applications, in relation to the methods and opportunities for moving these away from their existing environment straight onto Amazon Web Services (AWS). This strategy also included a full review of the architectural principles they were following, and in turn, Keytree aligned Karium to architectural methodologies, underpinned by the AWS Well Architected Framework, that will help the transition to a more modern, flexible, and secure approach.
