Paul Timmins, Global CIO of Operations, shares his experiences and success as to how he transformed Dentsu’s dated operational model by adopting Microsoft Azure. This cloud first strategy allowed Dentsu to exit and close their global datacenter estate and created greater agility for the business, providing more scalable demand driven platforms with clearer more accurate financial management. Learn how Dentsu has successfully created multiple cloud landing zones for applications leveraging the Cloud Adoption Framework, extensive automation, while maintaining governance which exceeded previous standards. The journey involved the development of new teams and skills, setting up the CCOE supplemented by new partnerships. The global introduction and migration to Microsoft Teams has helped empower their employees and underpins their ability to respond to and win new client pitches.
