The use of Microsoft’s cloud solutions has increased Darnitsa's productivity and increased its adaptability to work in new conditions16 December 2020
The Darnitsa Pharmaceutical Company has implemented the cloud version of Office 365 and moved its key systems to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform to increase the efficiency of its business operations under new conditions. The company uses the latest Microsoft solutions to create a dynamic infrastructure that meets our business transformation goals. The advantages include scalability, security and optimal cost. Darnytsia hired Infopulse, a Microsoft partner, to develop a holistic digital transformation strategy using Microsoft solutions.
Dmytro Shymkiv, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Darnitsa Group: “By choosing Microsoft as partner, we gained access to the newest digital technologies. They give us absolute freedom in time management and task planning, interaction and communication with our partners and access to information. This invaluable experience has reduced risks and facilitated our rapid adaptation to work in an unstable environment. That's why at this point, together with Microsoft, we are sharing this case, when businesses need it particularly. There are very few similar examples internationally of ERP system migrations to the cloud. And the reason is not even in the complexity of implementation. In fact, many companies are simply afraid to radically change their processes, approaches and even more so - to transform the thinking system in their teams. However, we see that this innovation is well worth the effort in our case.”
Oleksiy Sihov, Infopulse President: "In cooperation with our key partners, Microsoft and SAP, we strive to implement projects that will help our customers' businesses to reach new levels of efficiency. We appreciate our cooperation with the Darnitsa Pharmaceutical Company. The success of Darnitsa’s digital transformation is not only important for the whole pharmaceutical industry of our country, but also, and most importantly, for the health of Ukrainians in general. In the past few years we have already assisted Darnitsa in implementing the Office 365 platform and migrated SAP onto Azure, which is the company’s key ERP system and which coordinates all of the company’s basic business processes. The Microsoft Azure cloud platform provides Darnitsia with a new level of capability to maximize business productivity and ensures the reliability and resilience of the SAP landscape. We highly value our Darnitsa partners and sincerely wish them success in achieving full digitalization.”
Darnitsa started its digital transformation with the introduction of Office 365. It has provided the company's employees with greater productivity and the ability to achieve full control over their projects through freedom of communication, easier data exchange and an increased efficiency in daily tasks. With Microsoft products, users benefit from accessing critical business tools anytime, anywhere, and from any device. The Planner project management, Teams and OneDrive for secure cloud collaboration and file sharing helped the Darnitsa team quickly handle challenges and move to efficient remote work.
After successfully integrating collaboration tools throughout the entire company, Darnitsa has fully migrated its SAP system to the Azure cloud. Thanks to the simplicity in implementing solutions, this has allowed us to find a more rational, stable, efficient and profitable way of doing business. It now takes minutes instead of days to provide the company with internal IT services. This has resulted in a 60% reduction in infrastructure costs and a 50% reduction in the total cost of the project. The availability of a cloud infrastructure allows Darnitsa to maintain business continuity and saves the IT team time in strategic projects. And the productivity of the IT systems has increased by 30%.
Thanks to the implementation of this project, Infopulse has been designated the prestigious Microsoft Country Partner of the Year.
Satisfied with the impressive project results in migrating its SAP information system to the Azure cloud, the company is currently actively developing Microsoft business intelligence and data management technologies, as well as expanding the use of technologies involving artificial intelligence and IoT.
