Case Studies

Active Directory Deployment

A major bank needed help with an Active Directory Deployment. Data could not be compromised, and it was important that the bank's customers not be inconvenienced during the changeover. Ananke would need to balance the inherent disparity between user/business requirements and the technical limitations of varying applications needing to be migrated.

Ananke brought together partners, solutions and recommendations to help design, purchase and deploy the new solution for Active Directory and the replacement of the DNS environment throughout the bank.

The well organized and painless migration succeeded in meeting the bank's technical and business objectives.

Payroll Systems Down

A publicly traded, large, international entertainment company found themselves in a crisis situation when a cluster of critical servers that hosted their company payroll systems, crashed. After several days of unsuccessful troubleshooting and attempts to recover the data by several IT vendors (within the vendor's 9-5 support hours), the client asked Ananke to step in and take over the recovery process.

Within 4 hours, the servers were back online and functioning, and after 16 straight hours of support, the cluster of servers were fully functional and ready to run payroll the next morning.

Ananke did not have an existing relationship with this client, and nothing in writing to guarantee payment of said work, but seeing a company in dire need was all that our senior technician needed to see to pitch in and solve the problem. Within days, Ananke became their outsourced IT department.
