Device42: A Premier Partner in Visibility & Optimization

by: Align

Case Study Overview

Align recently designed a full IT Transformation program to help a regional bank migrate to the cloud, achieve technology stability, streamline operations and increase security. In our "From Legacy to Leading Edge" success story, we cover the full transformation program for this regional bank.

Here we aim to highlight our partnership with Device42, a leading data center discovery tool, that helped the Align team enhance the critical infrastructure discovery and application dependency mapping of the program.

New call-to-action

The Customer
A regional bank that manages hundreds of users across dozens of branches was running on legacy data centers, utilizing disparate technology suppliers and had a lack of IT transparency and documentation. 

The Challenge
During the discovery phase of our transformation program we realized the client lacked sufficient documentation around their systems and infrastructure. Align needed to take a deep dive into their entire IT estate and discover all relevant applications and dependencies, as well as determine if those resources were cloud ready. 

The Solution 
Align's partnership with Device42 provided full transparency into the bank's application environment from many different perspectives. This enabled Align's Migration team to discover an additional 40 unknown applications that had to be mapped and migrated alongside the 58 applications originally forecasted by the in-house IT staff.

"With Device42 we were able to manage, transform, and optimize the bank's IT infrastructure with complete confidence" -Art Dooling, Managing Director

The Results

  • Managed, transformed & optimized bank's IT infrastructure
  • Application inventory & dependency mapping
  • Network visibility & transparency
  • Application migration, consolidation & cut-over
  • Documentation & support of banking systems, network, connectivity
  • 50% decrease in annual IT spend
