GfK, a leading global market research company, chooses Proact for the supply and implementation of a new storage environment.
Proact delivers a complete solution on the basis of EMC VNX storage systems, including 24x7 support for the hardware and software. GfK has signed a three-year contract. In the first instance, this applies to the GfK branches in Belgium and the Netherlands within the context of the European standardisation strategy at the storage level based on EMC.
