Insulet Corporation is on a mission to improve the lives of people with diabetes, through its revolutionary Omnipod® Insulin Management System. InTWO supports this mission by providing Dynamics AX (2012 R3) on Azure combined with innovative services and InTWO CloudCARE.
The dedication to bring innovative products to the market and pioneer new technologies, has resulted for Insulet to be named number 4 on the Forbes 2017 list of the “Most Innovative Growth Companies”. Insulet’s strategic plan calls for growing their business both within North America and internationally. In order to achieve a global footprint, they needed to upgrade their existing Dynamics® AX 4.0 ERP solution. Relying upon InTWO’s experience, Insulet chose to leverage the latest capabilities in the Dynamics AX 2012 R3 version by deploying on Microsoft Azure. By adopting the InTWO cloud-deployment strategy on Microsoft Azure, Insulet can focus on its core business without the headaches of managing the necessary infrastructure. In this way, they are guaranteed 24/7 support from InTWO’s global operations centers and the peace of mind that comes with running their mission critical system on the world’s most stable Cloud platform – Microsoft Azure.
“We needed to establish a strong, future-ready, transactional core, to grow the company and support business expansion in all geographic areas.”
-Adam Wasylyshyn, CIO, Insulet
The decision criteria that Insulet evaluated given their options to upgrade and migrate to Dynamics AX 2012 R3 on Azure were as follows:
With over 300 Dynamics AX deployments, InTWO consulted with and advised Insulet that migrating their AX 2012 R3 system to Microsoft Azure was their best option for a successful implementation.
“Insulet was especially convinced by InTWO’s global expertise, 24/7 support, and high application availability guarantees. By making use of intelligent tools to design and support Azure, InTWO’s solution was very competitive and met our high availability and support requirements. With SaaSplaza CloudCARE, Insulet can reply on continuous, compliant, business-critical support and improvements.”
-Adam Wasylyshyn, CIO, Insulet
Several hundreds of Insulet employees are now benefiting from the full potential of Dynamics AX 2012 on Azure, including integration with Office 365, and specialized ISV solutions. Insulet can rely on InTWO’s extensive experience to run and support business critical solutions. Microsoft Azure’s comprehensive set of compliance offerings, in combination with InTWO’s compliancy measures, are a powerful combination to address Insulet’s security requirements. Expansion into other geographies is easy with all of the global Azure locations and ‘follow the sun’ support from InTWO. The Azure environments can be scaled up and down instantly to meet peak loads at month-end or to support seasonal patterns.
Adam Wasylyshyn goes on to say,
“InTWO is well positioned to help Insulet achieve our important mission to our customers and our strategic growth objectives.”
