How Microsoft Dynamics AX and Office 365 Hosted on Azure Drive Digital Transformation at Hagler Systems Inc.

This IDC Buyer Case Study details the IT transformation undertaken at Hagler Systems Inc. as the company consolidated its IT infrastructure into three cloud-based services. The 100-person SMB-sized company chose to migrate its ERP, office collaboration, and product life-cycle management (PLM) system to Microsoft Azure over the course of 2015–2016. This migration allowed Hagler Systems to operate at a higher level of agility, refocus its talent toward customer engagement and business growth, maximize profits, and add a new capability around surfacing business insights via new tools like Microsoft Office Delve.Hagler Systems' adoption of cloud-based office collaboration tools, ERP, and other services is a benchmark for how SMBs can engage with legacy partners like Microsoft and take advantage of hosted software to not just transform business processes but align IT with specific organizational goals and philosophies. To discuss this transformation, IDC met with Hagler Systems' Ben Hagler, vice president of Engineering and Operations, at Microsoft Envision 2016, Microsoft's inaugural conference aimed at applying IT solutions to business roles and processes.
