Cloud Solution For PostNL Reduces Costs For IT And Service

Capgemini and Sogeti enables full Cloud strategy and transition for Post NL.


Decreasing revenues forced PostNL to innovate their business model and reduce the TCO of their Group IT facilities. Their strategy is to outsource their IT completely except the orchestration of the IT- Business alignment and to close the data centers. The increasing dynamic market forced them to create the opportunities to facilitate Agile innovation and scalability.


PostNL chose the solution of a full Cloud Strategy ‘SaaS before PaaS before IaaS and on premises’ along with Public before Private Cloud. For custom made applications or ISV solutions that cannot be replaced by an existing SaaS facility, PostNL asked Sogeti  to service the applications on a quasi SaaS (private-SaaS) level. Capgemini and Sogeti supported PostNL in defining a detailed roadmap to migrate over 30 mission critical applications to the Windows Azure platform, including supporting middleware services like service bus, Java stack, Oracle and SQL instances, I&AM. Sogeti continues to run the applications that have been migrated.


Reducing Cost of IT, decreasing the size of the IT unit of PostNL and closing down the data centers increased their capacity to create and adopt new innovative solutions, available in the cloud or supported by Cloud-based technology. Standardized, generic cloud solutions and services reduced cost by increased scalability.
