Samsung SDS announced on the 30th of the last month that it opened an IT campus in Pangyo to change its IT outsourcing (ITO) business to a cloud-based remote business operating system.
Samsung employees used to be dispatched to clients’ companies located around the metropolitan area, but its IT campus in Pangyo will house about 2000 employees of Samsung, thereby operating IT system on their own.
For this, Samsung SDS will apply SDN(software-defined network) to Pangyo IT campus. SDN is a network managed with software. With this, Samsung can have safe access to clients’ networks anytime and anywhere.
In addition, security policies were strengthened by introducing different IT security systems for different customers’ security policies and access systems using facial recognition and intelligent video security control to prevent information leakage to the outside.
Samsung SDS also announced a plan to continue to promote ITO business innovation through task standardization of converting customer business systems to SaaS (software-as-a-service) and automation of operational tasks based on DevOps (software development and operation) that enables parallel collaboration between development and operation.
As Samsung SDS’ Cloud Service Division Head (Vice President) Koo Hyung-jun put it, “The transition to the cloud-based IT integrated operating system is expected to become a new standard for IT operations.” “Samsung SDS will continue to strengthen its cloud capabilities, and we plan to speed up our cloud-first strategy, such as nurturing them,” he added.
