Wipro Technologies has built a private cloud for OnStream Utility Metering Services Limited. OnStream provides gas and electricity metering solutions in United Kingdom. OnStream is part of National Grid Group, which is one of the largest energy delivery businesses in the world and the largest investor-owned utility in United Kingdom.
OnStream replaced its existing legacy IT infrastructure with a new service driven model using a private cloud approach. This approach aligned the IT architecture to be more flexible in functionality and configuration while at the same lowering operational cost and improving responsiveness.
This project will help OnStream seamlessly manage heterogeneous environments, standardize and automate data center processes to continue to optimize business efficiencies. The solution will also provide timely insights into key business applications that will help in delivering a new level of customer service management. This will lead to a common identity management platform that can seamlessly federate to public cloud in line with the business demands in future.[advt]
Wipro’s Infrastructure cloud offerings include an in-depth analysis of workloads through Cloud Inventory Analysis Tool, design and build of private cloud use cases like Development/Test as a service; Disaster Recovery and Backup as a service; Virtual & Hosted Desktop as a service including its recently launched WDaaS offering and Identity and access management on the cloud. Other cloud services include on-boarding of workloads to public cloud environments and integration between public-private environments to provide a hybrid cloud setup.
Neeraj Jaitley, Vice President & Business Head – Cloud Services at Wipro Technologies said,
“Our engagement with OnStream covers design, build and implementation of a private cloud environment using Microsoft’s Private Cloud solution. This approach provided OnStream with an ability to harness the best-of-breed technologies across the various layers in a private cloud stack. OnStream will benefit hugely through this program and such an engagement is a reflection of Wipro’s ability to add value to our clients’ business through new technology paradigms such as cloud computing”.
