Unlock the value of cloud - on your terms

  • Accelerating projects

  • Simplifying operations

  • Integrating applications

CONA Services, IT provider for Coca-Cola bottlers, needed a cloud solution that could handle one of the world’s largest SAP HANA migrations. Partnered with Capgemini, Microsoft, SAP, and NetApp, CONA Services saw faster performance, lower costs, and better data insights after a successful migration.
