Volkswagen Financial Services

Cloud First

Computacenter give Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS) a fast start

VWFS uses relocation of their Digital Unit as the driver for digitalisation - with their cloud enabled by Computacenter.




At the new location, the hardware infrastructure was to be reduced to a
minimum following the principle ‘cloud first’. The existing hardware was not to
be relocated. In the workstation environment, Microsoft Office 365 was to be used as the core application. The migration was carried out within a very limited timeframe.




Computacenter was able to win the contract against other bidders and
implemented the specifications of the Digital Unit within 6 weeks. With the
installed WLAN infrastructure from Cisco Meraki as well as Office 365 and Azure
from Microsoft, the agile team of scrum masters, software developers and
managers was able to start quickly.




In addition to the procurement and delivery of the hardware, Computacenter configured and implemented a flexible, cloud-based workstation environment for the Digital Unit. This enabled a creative new start in a new environment in Berlin and also considerably reduced the administration effort for the IT


This project required expertise and speed. From consultation, planning and integration through to the supply of the hardware, Computacenter provided everything from a single source. In spite of the end-of-year business, the implementation period was only two months.
