Dustin Collins, Vice-President, Global Infrastructure Services, Platform Specialty Products
Hi, I am Dustin Collins. I am Vice-President of Global Infrastructure Services for Platform Specialty Products. In our industry, most of our manufacturing, as well as our customers’, are in emerging markets. Aryaka was the only company that really owned the middle mile relative to the network. And the ability for us to deploy 180 sites in four months, over what would traditionally take 12-18 months for traditional telco, was something that was first and foremost paramount to us.

The decision was made to move everything into the cloud, and by doing that, it really entailed us to be able to effectively connect everyone independently, as opposed to a full-time data center.

We are organized within two divisions. We have a performance solutions division, as well as agriculture chemical division, and we focus on delivering custom solutions to customers all over the world. What challenges that we have in our organizations is, how do we reach our IT users and similarly how do our sales people reach their customers?

As we continue to acquire companies that speed to market was really the first and foremost reason why we chose Aryaka.

Stan Yarbrough, Ph.D., Senior Global Infrastructure Architect, Platform Specialty Products
It allows us to connect our users that are in some of the most remote places on earth and in some of the biggest cities to the most important assets that we have, which we have now placed in the cloud.

We have also seen a significant increase in terms of file transfer to anywhere up to about 20 times the speed. Simple transactions in some of our ERP systems are five times faster. And all of this gives the business more time to do more things to drive more revenue.

I have people in South Africa, they are accessing resources in the US over VPN, and they say it’s just like sitting in a data center.

With Aryaka, we really measured the impact in terms of cost savings. We have estimated we have saved about two to three million dollars annually over a traditional MPLS solution, when you consider the number of emerging markets that we are in and the difficulty of putting private connectivity into these locations.

Stan Yarbrough, Ph.D., Senior Global Infrastructure Architect, Platform Specialty Products
This is one of those projects that, as an IT person, I feel comfortable sitting in front of the CFO and telling that person that I am saving them money.

Aryaka is truly a Global SD-WAN.
