“We are transferring our IT operations to UMB and will migrate all IT services supporting our business processes into the UMB cloud”, confirms Daniel Buffet, APG/SGA CIO. The basis for the transfer lies in the geo-redundant and highly available UMB platform.
This outsourcing makes accessing innovations and cost reduction measures easier. Daniel Buffet is pleased: ”I find it especially positive that UMB as an excellent employer will offer new perspectives and development possibilities to seven affected APG/SGA employees”, he says.
