Reston, Virginia – October 23, 2014 – Kellogg Company, a Michigan-based Fortune 500 company has selected ScienceLogic’s next generation hybrid cloud mapping software to manage and monitor its hybrid IT environment.
With the explosive growth of public cloud based Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the IT efficiency, decreased cost, and resilient uptime benefits that go with it, Kellogg is establishing itself as a hybrid cloud leader. Today, the Kellogg infrastructure team acts as a broker of hosting services with workloads running in multiple cloud providers and in traditional data centers while maintaining operational and financial control.
Kellogg chose ScienceLogic in order to view and manage their entire infrastructure (on-premises in their datacenters and off-premises in AWS) from a single view. They saw this unique capability as key to their efforts to accelerate off-premises AWS adoption.
“At Kellogg, we are always looking to improve our IT operational efficiency. A big part of that is our all-in strategy on Hybrid Cloud with a particular emphasis on exploiting AWS for efficiency and agility,” said Stover Mcllwain, Senior Director IT Infrastructure Engineering. “With Sciencelogic, we are able to give Kellogg executives the IT visibility they need, while dramatically reducing overall support and capital costs by over $2 million over five years compared to our previous ITOM suite.”
Added McIlwain, “After an exhaustive vendor selection process, ScienceLogic emerged as the clear winner. They were easier to manage, simpler to deploy, and more comprehensive around technology coverage (including AWS, our modern virtualized environment, and even our legacy infrastructure). In short, we believed that ScienceLogic offered the complete package.”
Specifically, Kellogg needed a solution that delivered a highly differentiated set of results and worked at scale to match Kellogg’s global business requirements.
