Makita Corporation, founded in 1915, is a global brand operating in over 40 countries, known for manufacturing power tools.
Makita EU SRL embarked on a journey to modernize and enhance its IT infrastructure to meet the demands of accelerating digitization in the industry.
The customer was aiming to deploy cloud in just two months, but their lack of cloud skills up to that point had been hindering their goal for greater efficiency and they were eager to address the issue.
- Rapid Implementation: Makita EU faced the hurdle of implementing the project in under two months.
- Cloud Unfamiliarity: The client had limited experience with cloud solutions.
- Multilingual Collaboration: Language barriers complicated discussions, which took place in Romanian, English, and Japanese.
- Integration with Existing Systems: Connecting virtual machines (VMs) with existing IBM systems in the client's infrastructure was a complex task.
- High-Level Security: Ensuring a high level of security, including data protection and GDPR compliance, was essential.
Makita EU turned to Noventiq to help achieve their aims. After thorough analysis, Noventiq recommended a Microsoft Azure-based solution. The expert team from Noventiq provided comprehensive support throughout the migration process:
- Planning: Noventiq meticulously planned the migration, addressing the unique needs and challenges of Makita EU.

- Post-Implementation Services: Noventiq continued to support Makita EU after implementation, ensuring the ongoing success of the project.
- Knowledge Transfer: Knowledge transfer to the Makita EU team facilitated self-sufficiency.
The partnership between Makita EU and Noventiq resulted in transformative outcomes:
