Shawmut Design and Construction Selects CloudGenix AppFabric for Next-Generation WAN

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shawmut Design and Construction, a leading $1.2 billion national construction management firm, today announced the selection of CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN to create next-generation WAN, eliminate their need for MPLS, simplify network management and operations, and take advantage of cloud applications.

Shawmut chose CloudGenix because AppFabric promises the application performance and controls needed to migrate from MPLS to broadband Internet and take advantage of both hosted and cloud applications including Skype for Business. CloudGenix AppFabric is managed by a set of policies that align with business applications, enabling Shawmut to manage and view their WAN in a more intuitive way. The expanding analytics found in the CloudGenix Portal provide information needed to understand what’s happening within the network at any time. Dave Benson, chief information officer at Shawmut, said, “CloudGenix will allow us to reduce overall WAN costs and migrate to direct Internet from MPLS.”

Shawmut also selected CloudGenix because of the outstanding customer support and client-driven engagement model experienced throughout the implementation and beyond. Of this partnership approach, Benson said, “As a company known for client service excellence, Shawmut appreciates the level of engagement and support that CloudGenix has provided. Particularly with new technology, being able to rely on the software provider’s expertise and responsiveness is critical to success.”

CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN is a revolutionary solution that allows businesses to interconnect remote sites with applications deployed anywhere – in the cloud, data center, or SaaS – using a business-centric set of policies for performance, security, and compliance. CloudGenix uses metrics collected from both the network and application transactions to provide the best possible user experience over any WAN transport including broadband, MPLS, and LTE. Additionally, AppFabric exposes critical key performance indicators for both networks and applications to help improve management, monitoring, and troubleshooting for both networks and applications.
