Hybrid cloud: Nutanix revamps Olam International’s IT infrastructure

Olam, using the hybrid cloud strategy, is now able to maintain critical enterprise applications in its private cloud and use the public cloud to connect its extended business ecosystem including farmers, suppliers, warehouses, factories, and logistics to customers

IT infrastructure of Olam International, a food and agri-business company has been transformed by Nutanix Inc. using its hybrid cloud computing platform to connect farmers and customers and drive data-led decisions across the value chain.

Olam supplies food ingredients, feed and fibre to thousands of customers worldwide. It works with millions of farmers, for whom data on modern harvesting methods, demand situations and real-time market prices is crucial to increasing profitability. Nutanix is a US cloud-computing company that sells software, cloud services and software-defined storage.

“Farmers need to juggle multiple variables and parameters to manage yield and income, including weather situations and real-time demand”, Thiagaraja Manikandan, President & Group CIO/CTO at Olam International, said in a statement on Wednesday.

“In line with this, we launched three cloud-native digital platforms to provide our network of farmers with data to help them make informed critical decisions”, he said. “Our efforts were made possible by the hyper agile, scalable hybrid cloud environment we run with the help of the Nutanix Cloud Platform”.

Olam, using the hybrid cloud strategy, is now able to maintain critical enterprise applications in its private cloud and use the public cloud to connect its extended business ecosystem including farmers, suppliers, warehouses, factories, and logistics to customers.

“Olam’s legacy infrastructure was unable to adapt and support newer technologies. In short, it was out of date and of limited value, especially in the agri-business which is dependent on real-time data across multiple touch points”, said Faiz Shakir, sales director for Nutanix Inc. in India and SAARC. “Olam International is now able to stay ahead of potential disruption with their end-to-end digital transformation. And with hybrid cloud, they are set to maximise the value of their private and public cloud investments”.
