Craigs Investment Partners Two Years Ahead Of Schedule With Cloud Transformation
VISIBILITY OVER FULL TECH ESTATE WITH DR MIGRATE PROVIDES CONFIDENCE IN MIGRATION
Partnering with LAB3 and using Dr Migrate to accelerate its cloud migration, Craigs Investment Partners has embarked on a bold digital transformation journey across their entire technology estate to create scale and capacity for its continued growth.
Craigs has rapidly grown to become one of New Zealand’s largest private investment firms and aims to be fully in the cloud by the end of 2024, including the modernisation of over 30+ applications which support the provisioning of customer services. This is two years ahead of its original schedule.
“The number one reason Craigs invested in Dr Migrate was visibility. We needed to gain a clear view over our technical estate, and to be able to present this not just to our technical team but at a management level as well,” said David Jones Head of Technology at Craigs.
Dr Migrate provided a complete picture for Craigs of their entire technology estate, helping them understand the migration workloads, and ascertain with confidence the cost implications and comparisons in moving from on-premises to Azure. This enabled Craigs to build their business case for transformation.
“Dr Migrate and the Intel benchmarking engine automatically provided me with TCO, ROI and sustainability projections, but I took the time to validate the calculations myself. There was no material difference – Dr Migrate’s accuracy impressed me.”
