With a broad technology footprint which includes everything from billing and CRM systems through to SCADA systems that control the distribution network, Vector need a platform that is robust, highly performant and enables their team to work with minimal constraints to maintain their leadership position in one of the most rapidly transforming industries in the world.

With a high level architectural view of how public cloud would fit into their business and cost projections and optimisations, Vector were able to create detailed plans to move applications to public cloud where it was appropriate and cost effective. With public cloud now a cornerstone of Vector's infrastructure platforms, Vector have been have been able to establish a Cloud Centre of Excellence and provide their teams of innovative engineers and developers a springboard to leap into the future of the energy market.

These engagements have been across both the private and public sector in NZ and include customers such as Auckland Council, Vector, Watercare and Xero. We believe that for NZ businesses to reach their potential, we need talent that can leverage leading global tech and that this is a collective responsibility. As well as our fully managed service offerings, we recognise that our customers often have highly capable internal teams. Our unique co-pilot approach is a collaborative way of working to not only support our customers but share knowledge and upskill NZ’s cloud talent pool along the way; providing an environment where internal teams can learn by doing while having the confidence that we log and monitor everything to support them should they need it.

With six years of experience managing multi-cloud environments (including AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform), we specialise in bringing the expertise of global tech leaders to drive better outcomes for NZ businesses. The Instillery’s cloud agnostic philosophy means we don’t have a preference for any one particular cloud platform; we select and build the right cloud platforms to suit each individual customer’s needs. Additionally, with 90% of businesses currently using multiple cloud environments, this cloud agnostic philosophy extends to the technology we use; enabling seamless, unified provisioning and management rather than having to learn multiple cloud native toolsets. However, this doesn’t preclude the depth of expertise we bring to each cloud platform; with more than 25 industry awards, including winning the 2019 Microsoft Azure Migrate Partner of the Year award, we offer an environment where the best cloud talent comes to grow together.
