THE BOTTOM LINE

QAD ROI case study: Imperial Tobacco

Imperial Tobacco shifted its existing QAD production environment to the cloud rather than upgrading and refreshing its on-premises infrastructure, reducing its project costs by over seven million pounds.  With its current environment reaching its end-of-life, Imperial Tobacco built a business case to upgrade to the latest version of QAD deployed on premises.  However, by opting to lift and shift to the cloud, the company was able to extend the life of its current solution and lay the foundation for any future upgrade to the cloud.  Imperial Tobacco was able to reduce its costs related to maintenance, development and technical staff, and technology hosting.
