PepsiCo is a global company in a fast alteration for 5 years which has operations in 215 countries in the world. Especially in IT field it accomplished many radical subjects after CIO change. With the structure of the organization and changing in systems, the IT sided perspective has completely changed. We can mention that the IT structure of previous periods has changed into extrovert form to introvert one. We have a type of structure of IT which works friendly to the business organism, understands the requirements and develops solutions accordingly. Rather than supplying hardware and software need, we came to a position closely monitoring the need and creating solutions rapidly together. We maintain our advancement with mainly global brands because when make assessments at technological way, we are a global company. We take our place in a global framework, particularly in network, computing, database and helpdesk part in the new era. We lack of investing chance on Turkey with current pattern. While we realize our investments locally in IT field 10 years ago, as of today we totally became global. We have 2 large datacenter present in Europe, London and Frankfurt. Our crucial infrastructure works here. Frankfurt particularly in the world, is a crossing point of all the telecom operators and hub of all fibers. This places selected specially for investment due to these facts.

Because of a global agreement ongoing at PepsiCo’s working model we get support from a specific firm but this firm did not give technical support while it provides payrolling support. Our team consist of 24 people as PepsiCo Turkey. There was a major takeover happening in here. The working individuals have goals and everyone want to get some places in accordance with their goals. The trained personnel want to draw a route in accordance with their goals after a period of time. You spend time, effort for this person and can’t hold him/her in your hands. We started to fell need starting from this point. As PepsiCo Turkey we provide service to 6 thousand user, 3 thousand internal and 3 thousand at distributor side. Therefore we mention a serious workload. We decided to give this job in accordance with needs, to a firm which knows the job, an IT firm and when needed could provide technical support. Our aim was to build an organization that could find a personnel in place of the leaving personnel with same abilities. We realized an auction specific to our requests. We determine our requests, needs and the requirements of the work and transmit it to firms. We had an opportunity to contact with many firm after the auction. One of them was NGN. We consider many criteria while deciding to work with NGN. With our meeting with NGN, our decision effected by its position in Turkey, power in market, investments in Turkey, its experience based on years of work rather than price. Hiring, changes in business’ organization, replacement of personnel started take a lot of time and become an obstacle for us. Our main criteria was, an IT firm who is an expert at their job, support us and provide quality support easily. The winning firms of the auction become NGN within this context.
