Transforming the IT environment to go global
Thankfully, the company didn’t have to look far for the right solutions. “Vinamilk has been deploying Microsoft’s products and services since 2005 when we adopted Active Directory (AD) and Exchange for our back-end systems,” says Mr. Nghi. “We see our cooperation with Microsoft as a part of our long-term business strategy to become one of the world’s top dairy companies.” Working closely with Microsoft, Vinamilk’s IT Department evaluated the latest technologies including cloud-based solutions, efficient back-end systems, and a number of proactive security components. And with the help of SoftwareONE Vietnam Co. Ltd., Vinamilk adopted a comprehensive suite of solutions — Microsoft 365 Enterprise, which includes the power of Office 365, Enterprise Mobility+Security, and Windows 10 Enterprise.
For data security and storage, Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Exchange Online, OneDrive, and Power BI as part of the Office 365 suite, were selected in conjunction with EMS to provide Vinamilk’s staff with maximum security and storage both in and out of the office. For business analytics, Microsoft Power BI’s data visualization tools were selected to analyze big data and discover market trends faster and more effectively. For better collaboration, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, and Yammer were selected to allow employees to work and communicate seamlessly, even when mobile.
Vinamilk also needed the right support to ensure that its IT infrastructure was working efficiently and effectively. With Microsoft Premier Support for direct assistance from subject matter engineers, the company could receive help for any technical issues that might arise. “We plan to maximize every feature Microsoft has to offer across our subsidiaries and foreign branches,” says Mr. Nghi. “We hope that Microsoft will provide us further support in building our IT systems.”
