Digital Workstations of the Future
swb AG implements Microsoft’s Digital Workplace approach
With the support of Arvato Systems, swb has implemented the Microsoft Digital Workplace approach. This allowed the energy service provider to implement a key component of its cloud-first strategy and completely reorganize its office IT. As part of the project, we successfully connected swb’s on-premises environment with Microsoft’s cloud world.
swb receives a wide range of services and applications from a single source, ranging from consulting to configuration, implementation, training, and support. The investment in the Microsoft cloud offers the energy provider a great number of additional benefits: shorter roll-out application development times, faster adaptation of new IT applications, and lower operating and support costs.
Another decisive advantage is that swb employees are more satisfied and work more productively.
As a long-standing Microsoft partner, Arvato Systems provided swb with support in the form of the following Digital Workplace services, including:
