DevBank makes a change
The Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN) was conceived by the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in collaboration with global development partners to address the major financing challenges facing Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria.
As a fast-growing business and a potential target audience of 37 million MSMEs. The team at Devbank knew they could no longer rely on their old enterprise package solution (Veritas Netbackup). “We were constantly looking for ways to improve our ability to backup and store all our data in a safe and secure way”, said Abiodun Ijaware, Head, Information Technology. Several issues came up as DevBank tried to navigate the system they had in place, but two key issues stood out for Devbank;
1. The high costs associated with the platform
2. The cumbersome management levels needed to operate efficiently.
Given all the challenges faced in a fast-paced business environment Devbank knew it was time for change
Small daily and weekly checks whenever necessary can make all the difference in spotting problems and addressing them before they get out of hand. Stay vigilant, and what will undoubtedly start off alienating and challenging will eventually become simple and second nature. In the long term, your business’s security and health will be all the better for it.
After meeting with several vendors, Devbank settled on Descasio as a technology partner. Descasio was able to show us how moving to Microsoft Azure cloud, would not only solve all the issues we faced but that the system was scalable and flexible at an affordable cost.
The migration process to Microsoft Azure was planned and conducted by Descasio. After performing a thorough review of the systems in place, Descasio opted to migrate Devbank’s data assets through a lift -and – shift technique. This migration process allowed multiple systems to be moved simultaneously and during ongoing operations, without any significant interruption allowing for business continuity.
By the end of the entire process, staff of Dev Bank were able to take control of the system from day one, with minimal training.
Having worked with the Descasio team, the Devbank team were able to experience what the industry calls ‘the real deal” when it comes to service delivery. “With Descasio we have been able to easily meet our compliance and regulatory objectives for backup and recovery while also having time to focus on strategic objectives.’’ Said Abiodun.
With the help of Descasio, Devbank has been able to get a swift resolution to the issues that they faced previously. Not only was their overhead significantly reduced but the new Microsoft Azure cloud system allowed them to focus on their core business of investing in Nigerians.
