SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 6 — NetApp today announced its role in Revlon’s IT transformation. The global beauty leader turned to NetApp to help inject simplicity, agility, and cost efficiencies throughout all levels of its business. Through the NetApp storage foundation, which is at the heart of the company’s IT operations, Revlon is able to ultimately make smarter IT decisions that help fuel company growth.
Revlon manufactures and distributes millions of beauty products each year to more than 100 countries across six continents, creating layers of business complexity and incredible amounts of data. These challenges limited the company’s previous IT infrastructure, so Revlon approached NetApp to transform its IT capabilities. By building on NetApp, Revlon successfully implemented a private cloud infrastructure that increased agility and enabled the company to adapt to meet growing consumer demands. NetApp also helped Revlon harness its big data challenge, turning 3.6PB of data from a burden into a business driver.
“When we started our IT transformation in 2006, our overarching philosophy was to simplify. Simplification enables the speed to adapt, and speed is a competitive advantage. IT’s job is to make systems work for people, rather than people working for systems,” said David Giambruno, senior vice president and CIO for Revlon. “Leveraging NetApp as our single storage and data management foundation provides a newfound level of agility that impacts every aspect of our business. With 97% of our total compute running on our internal cloud built by NetApp, we wield the technology needed to turn data into information. Ultimately, that enables us to support the business and to deliver high-quality, innovative products to our consumers around the world.”
