Dutch dairy conglomerate FrieslandCampina produces cheese, yogurt, milk, and nutritional products for consumers around the world. In 2018, FrieslandCampina co-op farmers produced more than 10.4 billion kilos of milk. As FrieslandCampina started to move to the cloud, infrastructure architect Erik Klein saw an opportunity to transform the global organization’s network architecture from a private, MPLS-centered network to a public, internet-centric environment.
Klein and team set goals of aligning IT with operations and IoT priorities, improving security, reducing costs, and fixing the company’s bumpy Office 365 deployment. They aimed for nothing less than “making the corporate network irrelevant.” They rolled out local breakouts, changed a cloud-security-hesitant culture, and moved applications to the cloud. FrieslandCampina’s employees now experience faster application access, better security (delivered inline), and optimized Office 365 performance.
