The Challenge
EBSCO Industries, a global corporation with over 40 unique businesses, faced a complex IT landscape due to the diverse technology needs across each business unit. The company's IT team had to support a broad application portfolio and multiple cloud vendors. The challenge was to manage legacy applications while expanding into cloud platforms, which presented significant management and security challenges. Any lapse in application availability could result in substantial financial losses due to lost productivity. EBSCO needed a solution that would simplify application management across business units and allow each team to choose the applications they wanted to use.
