MAN Energy Solutions
While experiencing global business growth, rapid changes were occurring in technologies, such as IoT on engines and systems of all sizes deployed around the globe, many of which are in motion in transportation. At the same time, a large and distributed global workforce are increasingly mobile and requiring mobile access to web apps and custom business applications. This lead MAN Energy Solutions to undergo a cloud transformation.
However, MAN Energy Solutions found that the improved speed and agility gained in cloud deployment was being offset by a poor user experience associated with accessing apps through legacy corporate VPN solutions, with increasing appliance, software, and MPLS networking costs. Furthermore, there was a desire to gain security advantages associated with making the apps invisible on the internet.
