  • 1. Case study ASM Web Services grows its business by 5% in just four months Customer ASM Web Services Business Development, implementation and management of web-based solutions Sector Technology Challenge To offer secure, reliable, end-to-end solutions for web-based services and applications. Products and services Colt Enterprise Cloud Colt Enterprise Cloud enables ASM Web Services to offer its customers end-to-end managed solutions For over a decade ASM Web Services (ASMWS) has been creating online services ranging from website design to e commerce solutions. Its services, incorporating all the required security features, are highly valued by customers such as Novartis and Media Markt. But until quite recently, ASMWS faced a challenge: without its own hosting infrastructure, it had to implement solutions on third-party infrastructure in order to offer customers a complete package. Although ASMWS could recommend hosting providers to its customers, this partial loss of control of the overall customer solution was a thorn in the side of the company’s business strategy. Everything changed, however, when ASMWS learned about Colt’s Enterprise Cloud. ASMWS quickly understood the strategic business benefits, as Aleix Solà, the company’s Systems Director, explains: “Thanks to Colt Enterprise Cloud we can now offer end-to-end solutions – comprising service, applications, infrastructure and management – a proposition that’s especially important for small and medium- sized companies. The solution also enables more innovation and flexible configurations to meet customers’ requirements.” Three new clients in just four months As soon as Colt launched Enterprise Cloud at its Madrid data centre, ASMWS took advantage of the platform’s proximity and advanced configuration to deliver fully managed, custom-built solutions for three new customers. The first is an e-learning start-up offering online courses, videos and interactive tutorials, for which reliability and speed of access are critical. ASMWS implemented the applications, support and management using Colt’s Enterprise Cloud infrastructure. The second customer is another start-up, created by hospitals and mutual insurance companies in Catalonia, a region in the north- west of Spain. The aim is to improve doctor–patient communication. ASMWS developed and provisioned the website and applications and manages the solution. ASMWS had to ensure that patient information is easily accessible when needed, yet

Colt Enterprise Cloud made it easy to meet both requirements. For the third customer, a company that sells products over the web, ASMWS created an application that compares competitors’ prices using web robots, and provides daily updates. Using Colt Enterprise Cloud as the hosting environment reduces the likelihood of disconnection from competitors’ websites, helping ensure reliable, up-to-date comparative analysis. Using Colt Enterprise Cloud as the delivery platform for these solutions enabled ASMWS to increase sales by 5% in just four months. AMSWS can now adapt more easily to meet its customers’ needs, offer more efficient and innovative solutions, and even tailor them according to customers’ specific marketing programmes. Firm foundations for the future The relationship between Colt and ASMWS dates back to the implementation of an online shop solution for Codorníu on the Enterprise Cloud platform at one of Colt’s data centres. As a leading producer of sparkling wines, Codorníu’s sales are subject to seasonal peaks and troughs, with the very highest demand occurring during the run-up to Christmas. With Colt Enterprise Cloud, it’s easy to scale resources up and down as required to support Codorníu’s sales at any time of the year. “Before working with Colt on that project, we knew of their reputation,” explains Solà. “Building solutions on Colt Enterprise Cloud enables our customers to benefit directly from Colt’s superior quality, reliability and security. ” These qualities are combined with flexible access and configuration as required. // Building solutions on Colt Enterprise Cloud enables our customers to benefit directly from Colt’s superior quality, reliability and security. // Aleix Solà, Systems Director, ASM Web Services Although the collaboration with Colt is relatively young, ASMWS’s positive experience means they expect to continue developing it on the base of success stories like these. Solà points out: “Every implementation has been handled professionally and to the highest standards. We are really happy with Colt.” With Colt Enterprise Cloud, ASMWS can now offer the services and applications it develops complete with infrastructure and management. ASMWS is so convinced by Colt Enterprise Cloud that it has created its own backup data centre on the platform to ensure 24x7 availability.
