Case Study: Steinway & Sons
Assessing a more holistic approach to managing digital infrastructure for the world's most prestigious piano brand

Known for their precision and craftsmanship, Steinway instruments have become known for the acoustic superiority and remarkable lasting power. Today, the Steinway has became the choice for 98% of concert pianists. It's unparalleled quality has given it the reputation as a guaranteed investment that can be passed forward generation after generation.
As an organization, Steinway was looking to improve on their digital maturity. They were in the process of transforming their customer digital experience and wanted a way to better aligning internal operations to keep up with their CX strategies. To do that, Steinway and Icreon embarked on a technology roadmapping & IT assessment that would spot the critical gaps in enabling digital growth.
Steinway and Icreon outlined a number of points of interest, but fundamentally aligned on defining a stronger cloud strategy. Our solution designers & digital strategists charted out a roadmap that invested in key pillars for the future.
With dozens of presences, showrooms, a global footprint, and a distributed sales model - Icreon saw a gap in the current media & content management capabilities, and recognized the opportunity for centralized asset management across the globe.
Icreon realized the amount of time and effort being spent on legacy infrastructure in storage, email & collaboration management was lacking and built out a roadmap to outline an approach towards Office 365 implementations that would maximize their investments in Dynamics ERP
