Following their Mainframe migration, Sonoco have embarked upon a cloud first strategy. The Sonoco CIO’s remit is to reduce running costs by 20%, while using new technologies such as IoT, Machine Learning and Analytics to improve the manufacturing process. Waste created during the packaging manufacturing process is an area that has been immediately identified for improvement, implementing IoT into the production process will allow Sonoco to create efficient ways of producing packaging that significantly reduces the amount of waste created.
Sonoco have grown exponentially through acquisition, which has left them with disparate Datacenter environments, all of which needed consolidating and modernizing to support the businesses plans.
A global business needs a global cloud, Sonoco’s long-standing relationships with both Microsoft and Ensono made them the natural choices for taking the next step on the data center transformation journey.
