For our goal in becoming a cloud-first business, we have set out to establish a METRO Cloud Hub - a center of expertise for all things cloud.
The three core pillars of METRO's Cloud Hub are the driving elements of this initiative.
Migrating a significant proportion of our products and services to Google Cloud is an essential step in following up with our goal of becoming a cloud-first business. Having more than 100 projects at METRO.digital and even more across the 25 METRO Wholesale country organizations, we are looking to provide higher scalability and flexibility to our customers, as well as better leverage cross-organizational data and insights.
Cloud education is about enabling a long-lasting transformation across people and processes. Providing learning opportunities to all colleagues across the METRO board is how we support the migration of our products and services to the Cloud. We also like to encourage our colleagues’ passion for new knowledge and opportunities.
Putting together the fresh new skills and technological capability, we are going to act as a catalyst of new ideas and experimentation. We will be solving business problems, building value and accelerating growth for METRO and our partners. By providing tools and resources to integrate innovation practices sustainably in the daily business, we aim at enabling a positive environment to foster a modern approach towards problem-solving. And we are open to collaboration!
As the METRO tech unit, METRO.digital is the official representative of METRO in all information technology related matters. Equipped with a pool of experts both in IT and Wholesale, METRO.digital is METRO's driver in the quest for cloud adoption, education and innovation across the entire organization.
Metro has been partnering with Google since 2018 when some of the Cloud Migrations were kicked off. Providing the tools and experience, Google Cloud has been a great partner throughout this journey.
As a part of the strategic digital and IT partnership with METRO, Wipro is cooperating with us on achieving our cloud-driven goals to help drive METRO’s transformation agenda.
