IBM SmartCloud services help improve technology fitness through a hybrid environment. Brunswick Corporation designs, engineers, manufactures and distributes a wide variety of products for prominent brands in the marine, fitness, and bowling and billiards industries.
Brunswick Corporation needed to upgrade to newer technology that could support its mobile workforce. Seeking to reduce IT spend, the manufacturer contracted with IBM to implement a hybrid environment, keeping core business applications on-premises and moving email and online meetings to the cloud. By so doing, Brunswick estimates that it avoided hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital expenditures, and is saving up to USD75,000 annually.
