MILAN and NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2022 — Polti, the Como-based company known worldwide for steam applications in both ironing and cleaning in domestic and professional settings, has embarked on a digital transformation journey in collaboration with Kyndryl, the world's largest IT infrastructure services provider, completing the migration of all its management environments to the cloud.
To support its overarching growth strategy, Polti Spa sought to modernize its technological infrastructure by revamping its architecture and changing its underlying operating system. With Kyndryl’s help, the company transitioned to a new system in just three months, experiencing no operational downtime in the process. In doing so, Polti was able to free itself from the typical problems of physical hardware, which is subject to aging and continuous upgrades.
By switching to Kyndryl Cloud for SAP, Polti Spa established a strong foundation for future growth and operating in a market with ever-shifting business needs.
"The first tangible benefit of the migration," says Paola Miani, ICT Manager at Polti Spa, "was the technological renewal of the infrastructure, a modernization that immediately led to improvements in performance and especially in the reliability of the systems. Added to this is the enablement to be able to extend the configuration to other infrastructure services or to acquire new ones among those most useful for the development of the company's business."
"Supporting the Polti brand means collaborating in the digital evolution of a Made in Italy player whose strengths lie in innovation and sustainability," adds Giovanni Crespi, Client Unit Leader Digital at Kyndryl Italia. "The choice to adopt a secure, scalable and resilient cloud is, from our point of view, the most effective solution to ensure competitive capacity and adaptation, flexible and fast, to a constantly evolving market. We are going to assure its management and development."
