About the Client

The client, a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in N.Y. is one of North America’s publicly traded owners and operators of open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers, and mixed-use assets. The company has specialized in shopping center acquisitions, development, and management for the last few decades.

Business Challenge: Scalability & high availability of business applications

The client had a legacy solution that was the backbone of its business operations. The business-critical applications, including lease management systems used by sales, operations, and other departments, were run on a private data center. The legacy solution presented many security risks as well. Additionally, much of the maintenance activities were manual.

The client needed a solution/setup that would meet the projected growth in the business & users.

Trigent Solution: Seamless migration to Microsoft Azure Cloud

The client partnered with Trigent to augment their IT infrastructure. The Trigent team carried out a thorough assessment of the client’s data center infrastructure to understand the applications, different operating systems, security considerations, and processor & memory utilization. Trigent designed new security models and cloud-native backup recovery processes. Trigent also assisted the client in designing an effective migration strategy that rehosted (lift-and-shift) most applications, with few carefully re-architected applications.

Considering business agility, cost optimization, and ease of maintenance, the team suggested the client move the workloads to the Azure cloud environment. The re-architected applications leveraged native features of Azure.

By leveraging Azure services for compute, storage, network & security along with using the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure, the client was able to accelerate the agility, governance, and cost benefits of their Azure investment.
