Here’s What Happened When Del Monte Foods Moved To AWS

Accenture helped 132-year-old Del Monte Foods cut costs and increase operating efficiencies by moving its workloads to Amazon Web Services.

It didn’t take long for Del Monte Foods to see the benefits of the public cloud.

With the help of Accenture, the 132-year-old company cut its IT spending costs by 35 percent in less than four months. It also increased operating efficiencies and reduced the time to roll out IT support to staff from weeks to less than an hour. But it wasn’t easy, according to Accenture’s Prasad Sankaran, senior managing director and global head of cloud and infrastructure.

“They had some complex workloads, some of which were related to SAP. When we did the analysis, it was determined that the best fit was to go with AWS at that point,” said Sankaran.

Del Monte, based in Walnut Creek, Calif., migrated 200 servers, along with a business-critical SAP ERP system. Using AWS, Del Monte consolidated its IT systems onto one platform. It also leveraged the automation tools of the Accenture Cloud Factory to accelerate the migration and continues to use the Accenture Cloud Platform to manage its cloud services.

“It really set them on a journey of analytics, automation and artificial intelligence,” said Sankaran.
