Sonae is a multinational group managing a diversified portfolio of businesses in retail, financial services, technology, shopping centres and telecommunications. Sonae Financial Services, a business segment responsible for fostering financial services, was looking for a Microsoft Partner experienced in Azure PaaS services to improve their real-time information processing.

It was the collaboration methodology called DX: as a Service that made possible Xpand IT’s team multidisciplinary and scalable approach when delivering different projects over the years. Considering all initiatives Xpand IT is developing, Sonae FS now has the capacity to answer 4 times more requests compared to the beginning of the project and is able to see real-time information on the dashboards.

“At Sonae Financial Services, we look for partners who challenge us to take full advantage of cloud technologies and boost our business.

We’ve found with Xpand IT a partner that adds technological value and helps us improve our value proposition while being able to adapt to our needs with the agility that today’s real-time businesses require”
