OPEN-SOURCE PLATFORM ON AZURE CREATES NEW MARKET POTENTIAL

LaSalle Solutions is an independent division of Fifth Third Bank (NASDA: FITB) and leading IT equipment and services provider, serving Fortune 500s around the globe. With a rapidly changing IT landscape to more subscription, software and cloud-based models, LaSalle’s leadership team realized it was time for the next evolution of their legacy IT Asset Management Platform, LAMP. LaSalle partnered with Valorem Reply to modernize and transform their LAMP product with a visionary, future-fit solution with Microsoft Azure cloud-native architecture, leveraging open-source technologies, containerization systems, CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous deployment) engineering and DevOps practices. Resulting in the next evolution in IT Asset Management, LaSalle’s LAMP 5 Platform.

With cloud-enhanced security and scale LaSalle is adding value for their customers and creating new market opportunities. Valorem Reply and LaSalle’s LAMP product team defined a visionary, future-fit solution with cloud-native architecture, leveraging open-source technologies, containerization systems, CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous deployment) engineering and DevOps practices.

The number one upgrade we’re getting with Azure in the new LAMP 5.0 is flexibility from the scalability perspective. We can rapidly and painlessly scale up the number of assets tracked in LAMP for our customers by 100X and more thanks to being cloud-based instead of on-premises.
Steve Robb, President, LaSalle Solutions
Valorem’s team integrated Azure DevOps as a work management tool end-to-end, from requirements through deployment. This has significantly increased our development velocity for hot fixes and customer specific features. Releases that may have taken 2 weeks before can now be done daily if needed. The biggest benefit for our customers is better usability and the strategic direction for the future. As we look to integrate LAMP 5.0 with more native cloud application to bring additional value to our customers, LaSalle Solutions and LAMP 5.0 are now ready for that journey.

RESULTS

"LaSalle competes with much larger network equipment distributors. Despite its market position, LaSalle has secured contracts with a significant portion of the Fortune 500. Their success is tied to providing a cost-effective approach to asset management. The biggest benefit to LaSalle is that its approach, creates strong, “sticky” relationships that has resulted in rapid growth for LaSalle over the past 10 years. Once a customer shares its asset portfolio with LaSalle through LAMP, they begin to appreciate the value of a single data source for information across vendors, locations and asset classes."
