Challenges

Despite its commercial success, Argentina’s economic situation—characterized by a generalized increase in prices, a weak currency, and rising energy rates—has forced CFA to look for ways to optimize operational costs, including those related to its technology infrastructure. CFA needed to:

  • Renew its technology infrastructure after hosting data center externally.
  • Optimize energy and space expenses
