An investment made by the UAE's Al Naboodah Group Enterprises (ANGE) in a new platform helped the company to meet the goal of virtualising its IT operations.

ANGE's aim was to completely virtualise its information technology (IT) environment, in a bid to meet sustainability goals set by its management, increase the utilisation of existing IT investment, and reduce capital expenses. 

The firm, which employs 16,000 people and has more than 100 construction sites and offices across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, uses various applications that have to be continuously available to allow intra-company collaboration.

Eventually, Swiss technology provider, Veeam, delivered the availability platform that helped ANGE virtualise 99.8% of its IT operations, offering the construction company backup cycles shortened by 60%, and saves the construction giant 1,000 man-hours each year. Availability, in the IT environment, is a measure of a user’s ability to access data in the location and format it is expected in.

In the following pages, Construction Week outlines ANGE's requirements for an IT system that could cater to its large-scale construction operation, and details of the Veeam platform that was picked by ANGE.
