Transformation through M&A


This division of a large global communications provider was struggling with the technology challenges of a rapid acquisition strategy that required the integration of multiple companies, thousands of employees, numerous systems and a footprint that spanned 18 different countries.  Their new leadership had a daunting list of objectives that centralized around the need to unify technology platforms, security controls, and applications in order to meet the business and compliance objectives of this new entity.


Unsure of where to begin, they turned to MCS who was an established and trusted partner in the security ecosystem. With security and compliance, a critical requirement for this global business, this client looked to MCS to architect a solution that encompassed not only the security controls but the entire infrastructure design. Working across the entire technology organization, MCS developed a comprehensive design that encompassed multi-cloud infrastructure, high-availability, security controls and monitoring across 10 datacenters.
They also lead the implementation of this design from program management, technology deployment and the development of an operation and skills model for the new entity to align to.

The MCS mission is to provide best-in-class cyber security solutions along with expert services to reduce our client’s exposure to business disruption stemming from security attacks or data theft and destruction.


This on budget, on time transformation delivered numerous benefits, ranging from financial savings through the standardization and modernization of infrastructure and the optimization of IT staffing through to significantly improved redundancy with a virtualized high availability platform.
More critically, this client was able to achieve their core goals of building an agile and modern technology organization that could better support their business objectives, providing an improved customer and employee experience with unified systems and delivering all of this with a best in class cyber security posture.
