Kingspan is targeting world leadership in green building solutions and is facing the challenges of controlling costs amidst rapid growth. Shunra is critical to multiple Kingspan business initiatives moving forward, including:
- "Project Obama", a 36-month effort to reduce IT costs and complexity globally by consolidating 50 worldwide computer centers into two large datacenters;
- Centralized Citrix and SAP for the company’s worldwide user base;
- Video conferencing, which will be used to reduce global travel costs by 55 percent in 2011; and
- A new VoIP global telephony system.
"We will be using Shunra’s technology to conduct pre-deployment performance testing for all these initiatives – for example, we’ll be assessing Polycom and Tandberg video conferencing applications, and Shunra will help us make the decision," said Donnelly. "Kingspan has made it a point to bring in the world’s best technology, and we’re counting on Shunra to make that technology sing."
