Pets at Home are the UK's leading pet care business, providing pet owners with everything they need to be able to look after their pet, from food, toys and bedding, and grooming services, right the way through to first opinion veterinary care and world class specialist veterinary hospitals.

The Challenge

As with many businesses Pets at Home were at an inflection point. End of life hardware in their own data centre and a hard block on support for the version of operating system they were running meant consideration around their SAP landscape was required.

The Project

It was agreed a Proof of Concept would be the first step, giving the business a chance to test and gain more of a tangible feel for the Azure platform.

Centiq provisioned all the Azure services along with HANA and SAP Netweaver application services. They performed system rename and all the migration activities from the on-premises systems to what had been built in Azure. Dev and QA systems were migrated first with the Production environment going live shortly after.

Business Benefits

  • Increased stability and resiliency
  • The organisation's demand for a more robust and dynamic platform for its business critical systems was met.
  • Azure provides the foundation that the business feels confident with and which enables the flexibility that any retailer in the current market requires.
