Coca-Cola Bottlers leverage Liaison technology

July 19, 2018
Program aims to provide path to modern, cloud-based architecture.

Liaison Technologies announced the launch of its “Embrace & Replace” program, which gives enterprises that currently use legacy technologies a low-risk, transformational path to the cloud. Liaison also announced that the Coca-Cola Bottlers’ Sales & Services (CCBSS) Company is its first Embrace & Replace program customer. 

CCBSS, which is owned by independent U.S. Coca-Cola bottlers, supports the operations for the Coca-Cola System. CCBSS sought a more modern architecture for its supply chain operations to enhance the experience for its stakeholders and move away from a do-it-yourself strategy for connecting legacy technologies to cloud-based services, according to Liaison, whose Embrace & Replace strategy leverages its ALLOYâ Platform to ease enterprises’ transformation to cloud technology.

The program empowers select enterprise companies to transition from legacy on-premises integration and middleware technologies to the ALLOYâ cloud-based platform. 

“Use of a modern, cloud-based architecture is a huge win for our supply chain,” said Rodolfo Quiroz, vice president of IT at CCBSS. “It will significantly reduce onboarding time, make change requests more visible, and facilitate faster project completion, which is a major upgrade since each project is unique. We conducted an extensive review to find the right partner, and Liaison’s offer to take over our current environment and migrate functions to achieve a seamless transition was compelling.”

“Many companies today are struggling to achieve a digital transformation because the legacy applications that they have invested in for decades are fragile and nearly impossible to modify or enhance, thereby inhibiting digital transformation,” said Rob Consoli, chief revenue officer for Liaison. “Our industry-first Embrace & Replace program enables enterprises that desire to move to a modern cloud-based architecture to accommodate all of their integration and data management needs but lack the manpower to facilitate the transition of existing legacy infrastructure, systems, and processes, to deploy our people, our processes, and our innovative Liaison ALLOY Platform to advance to a future state with minimal risk and impact to their business. We’re excited to partner with CCBSS to provide a world-class architecture to support enhanced supply chain operations.”
