Enable immediate provisioning of resources across 13 product groups to support standardization and achieve economies of scale cost savings.
PSDC delivers its services to the wider Micro Focus R&D community so that they can focus on their core competency of developing superior software for customers. With 50 Micro Focus data centers around the world, inefficiencies and a silo’d approach had started to creep in, according to Rajan Ranmal, ITOM Sales Enablement, at Micro Focus: “We could see each team managing their own resource environment for use by their own lab. They needed to be able to count on a certain block of resources and this seemed the most ef-ficient way to ensure this. 13 groups were using different methods to provision resources; from home-grown tools or scripts, to third party solutions, resulting in inefficient use of people, processes, and technology. This lack of consistency also made it impossible to forecast resource requirement levels and associated budgets.”
PSDC wanted to provide infrastructure-on-demand to support software testing and certification across all Micro Focus product groups. By introducing transparency and control, the organization aims to break the silos and drive economies of scale with resource sharing between product teams.
