Business Challenges .

In recent years, Carhartt’s continued growth strained its aging IT infrastructure. Experiencing several outages every year, the company’s CIO tasked the IT team with evaluating cloud-based alternatives. Carhartt started with a needed upgrade to its SAP environment, which catalyzed a migration to Microsoft Azure. With that initial success, and upon further evaluation of the costs and benefits of a cloud solution versus a hardware refresh for its existing hyperconverged infrastructure, Carhartt decided to move the majority of its environment to Azure.
