“ By going into the cloud, we keep our CAPEX down to a minimum. ”
Jeff Marshall, CIO, Havas Creative
Havas is one of the world's largest global advertising, digital and communications groups, offering services including digital, advertising and direct marketing. Headquartered in Paris, France, Havas operates in over 100 countries and employs approximately 15,000 people.
Havas wanted to streamline business infrastructure and operations, and enable its employees to access IBM Verse, a new way for employees to prioritize and act on the most important work of their day.
Havas replaced its legacy collaboration tools with a cloud-based social messaging solution from IBM— providing instant, context-aware information on projects, tasks, meetings and more.
Today, Havas empowers teams to surface the content they need instantly, enabling them to spend less time on repetitive administration tasks and more time on higher-value initiatives.
