SoftwareONE Delivers 32% Savings to Banco Votorantim

EA renewal, server optimization, and better management of the overall IT budget including cloud spend were key benefits of the partnership between these two companies.

SoftwareONE, experts in Cloud Computing and Software Portfolio Management, worked together with Banco Votorantim to provided improved IT budget management, cost reductions and cloud governance.

The Partnership and the Benefits

In late 2017, SoftwareONE submitted a proposal with various options for Banco Votorantim to consider around their Office 365 Enterprise Agreement (EA), such as Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) and Server and Cloud Enrollment (SCE).

"SoftwareONE’s knowledge, time and focus enabled us to close the deal within our budget," says Marcus Vinícius de Aguiar, Executive Infrastructure Manager at Banco Votorantim. “With information provided by PyraCloud, we have been able to use technical controls to reduce servers, optimize our cloud infrastructure and identify cost savings which allowed our costs in 2018 to fall below budget. Thus, in 2019, we have the necessary insights and control to enter into the Office 365 Enterprise Agreement (EA) model,” adds Aguiar.

“Our 30+ year partnership with Microsoft allows us to deliver on projects that fit the reality of our customer’s needs. This flexibility and understanding guarantees the success of projects such as Banco Votorantim” says André Fernandes, Founder LATAM and Chairman of the Board of SoftwareONE Brazil.

Using PyraCloud to Reduce Costs 

SoftwareONE's strategy to meet Banco Votorantim's needs included PyraCloud, SoftwareONE’s proprietary platform which provides insights into software portfolios for governance, budgeting, spend management and optimization across an entire software estate, be that on-premise or cloud. In addition, the platform provides visibility and control of software contracts, entitlements and renewals and can provide recommendations to optimize resources across your environment. 

PyraCloud provides insights into cloud consumption across cloud providers and can help identify resources that may be underutilized. PyraCloud's budget and resource management capabilities, in conjunction with Microsoft's CSP model, allowed Banco Votorantim to make better use of IT resources, which enabled them to identify cost saving opportunities. 

“We used PyraCloud to track project budgets and identify unused email accounts. Thus, the budget that we anticipated would be consumed by December 2018, according to predictions, can actually be used until April 2019” comments Aguiar.

SoftwareONE Approach and Strategy

The strategy led by SoftwareONE was to provide Banco Votorantim with the best possible use of Office 365 within their budget. SoftwareONE has a flexible approach which is scalable across any customer size and industry sector.

“We are proud to be a company that understands the real needs and desires of our customers. Strategic partnerships like the one we have with Microsoft enable us to develop innovative solutions and unprecedented approaches that can be used in different sectors of the economy, both in Brazil and abroad,” adds Fernandes.
