Cybercom's Antti Arnell is the Lead Azure Architect at Cybercom, and he was the architect responsiblefor the cloud transformation project for Paulig corporation (read more about the project from our home page). Paulig is known for being the most significant coffee house in Finland.
In this article, we will learn how Antti's experience was crucial in building a cloud solution that was tailored for the use of the whole Paulig corporation. Cybercom's Azure team designed, built, and delivered a Cloud Governance made for an international business group's need. The new cloud project was a remarkable milestone for Paulig, as the cloud transformation was made for the first time on this scale.
"Less talk, more doing" is Cybercom's catchphrase, that Antti can happily underline. Because Cybercom's groundwork for multi-phase cloud architecture projects is on a functional basis, lean practices are easy to introduce to the Azure Cybercom team.
"Our approach in the Paulig case was highly educational, to make the comprehensive cloud transformation as business-friendly and sustainable as possible. Thus, fluent communication with the client is always crucial on the projects", Antti says.
"During our project, we organized workshops and trainings with our client, where the IT personnel of Paulig could learn the rules and how they can take full advantage of the cloud. We had great discussions and in-depth examples, how our cloud solution can help Paulig to develop their everyday business practices in the cloud. For instance, Paulig can now launch a new solution in a more agile way when operating in a cloud. At the same time, we learned a lot about Paulig's operations.
With the understanding of the client's business, we were able to tailor our cloud solutions to enhance the best practices in the most efficient way.
I could say that the cloud solution we made was an accurate match for Paulig's business' needs, with the help with Cybercom's expertise", Antti summarises.

Antti has been working in the IT business field for nearly 20 years. For a senior Azure Lead with a steady experience, there are a lot of possibilities out there in the cloud sphere. What makes Cybercom's cloud practices one of its kind?
"If you want to stay at the top of the cloud business, I cannot honestly think of a better place than Cybercom. Our Makers of tomorrow attitude is crucial for our progress as we engage in new practices, innovations, and developments that raise the whole industry standards. Another good thing is that we have a shallow hierarchy.
As we did with the Paulig case, everybody in the project was able to learn from each other and bring their expertise to develop better solutions for the client.
It is also good to understand that the Cloud is never ready, and you always have new opportunities to learn and use your experience in client projects. For example, as a cloud advisor, my knowledge of business and technology was a pacemaker in the Paulig case, because it helped the cloud transformation become more concrete for the customer.
Lastly, one great privilege of working at Cybercom is that you do never need to work alone. As in Paulig's case, we have a supportive setup with our Azure team, where you can always share your questions, thoughts, and learnings with the whole team", Antti states.
