CDO Foodsphere, one of the country’s biggest food enterprises, had recently partnered with Globe Business to lead the migration of its company’s warehouse management system from on-premise to the cloud.

“Our on-premise legacy system had become too tedious to maintain. We had been experiencing unexpected downtimes—with restoration taking longer than expected,” says Ria Vidal, Assistant Vice President for IT of CDO Foodsphere Inc.

Vidal had also expressed how “a few days or even hours of downtime would have had a significant impact on the business.”

Globe Business, together with Amazon Web Services (AWS), conducted a Proof of Concept (POC) with CDO Foodsphere mid-2019. This allowed the latter to test and experience AWS functionalities before fully migrating applications that monitor the company’s inventory during Q4 2019.

Since then, resolving time for incident reports had also been drastically reduced from 150 days to just one day, from before Oct 2019 implementation to the present. Best of all, the company noticed major improvements in the system’s performance and stability, especially during the pandemic.

“Aging hardware, performance issues, and scalability concerns are among the common challenges that our customers face when dealing with applications developed in-house or stored on-premise,” shared Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business. “Add the complexities brought about by the pandemic—fixing systems on-ground becomes even more problematic.”

Thanks to Globe Business, migrating workloads to the cloud have become more manageable. Otherwise, it would have been more difficult to restore on-premise applications.

“We’re glad that the success of CDO Foodsphere’s migration paved the way for other cloud migrations such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS),” says Maquera. “We look forward to seeing one of the country’s leading household brands grow into a fully cloud-powered business.” 

Globe aims to support more Filipino businesses as they transition into their cloud transformation journey in the digital age. With the help of other prominent collaborators such as AWS & Cascadeo—Premier AWS Consulting Partner and Managed Services Provider, Globe Business hopes to grow more enterprises with improved business operations.

Meanwhile, CDO Foodsphere is just one of the many cloud-first companies taking the next steps to a more resilient future. With the help of Globe, CDO Foodsphere aims to provide continuous product development, technological advancement, organizational efficiency, and excellent customer support to each Filipino home.
