“Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offers us the flexibility, scalability, and just-in-time-performance that we need. Azure only bills us for the times in which number-crunching machines are actually running. IT infrastructure is not the core business of Unilever Belgium, so we decided to partner with SoftwareONE.”
Unilever is a global company that sells fast-moving consumer goods that improve the health and wellbeing of its customers. Every day, 2.5 billion people worldwide use Unilever products – including food, beverages, and personal care and household products – made by global brands such as Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Axe, and so on. Unilever has the ambitious vision of making sustainable living commonplace. The Unilever Belgium office is located in the heart of Brussels and accommodates approximately 800 employees. The company gathers large amounts of data each day, which demands end-of-business-day processing services. This in turn requires enormous flexibility on the part of the IT infrastructure.
