The company regains operational efficiency thanks to SPIE’s Cloud
Lamy, a subsidiary of the French Nexity Group, is a network of real estate agencies. After depending on its French parent company, Lamy decided to opt for the Cloud in order to host its data and office automation and business applications to regain operational flexibility. Lami chose the ICS division of SPIE Belgium as hosting and service provider.
Every facet of the transition to the Cloud has been handled by the ICS division of SPIE Belgium, from the needs analysis and business specific features of Lamy to support for users on a day-to-day basis (help desk) for the core of the project. SPIE made available an infrastructure in its datacentre in Belgium (dedicated Active Directory, Exchange and Citrix servers), connections (Internet, redundant broadband lines) and local solutions (PC, network, firewall). The computer population was replaced with latest generation desktops and laptops.
Result: flexibility, mobility and data centralization are a reality from now on. “The transition to the Cloud was indispensable. IT is a permanent fixture for us that has to be available for every employee from morning to night. We now have extraordinary flexibility,” says Marc Milcamps, managing director of Lamy.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
