Coca Cola jumps on IBM’s private Cloud

IBM wins five-year deal to host and manage CCA’s South Pacific operations from its Sydney datacentre

IBM has won a five-year contract to manage Coca Cola Amatil’s (CCA) mission-critical SAP infrastructure on its private Cloud hosted in its Sydney datacentre.

The project is expected to “drive significant operational costs” out of CCA’s South Pacific business. The company operates in Australia, NZ, Indonesia, PNG, Fiji, and Samoa.

CCA’s Australian and Indonesian branches will be the first to move onto IBM’s Cloud.

A statement from IBM claims the platform will optimise and streamline CCA’s order management and distribution processes, increase operational efficiencies, and deliver a consistent customer experience.

According to CCA chief information officer (CIO), Barry Simpson, using a common Cloud platform across Australia and Indonesia will allow it to standardise and automate its operations.

He said it will also enable CCA to grow its market share in Indonesia, which the bottler considers a “major opportunity” in 2014.

IBM’s Sydney-based datacentre is expected to “eventually” serve as a Cloud hub for the rest of CCA’s South Pacific operations.

IBM Cloud business leader, Grant Thompson, said CCA will be able to leverage processes from its Australian business and apply them to the rest of the region.

The specific value of the deal was not disclosed but is in the multi-millions.
