Golden Hotels starts its journey to the AWS cloud with Costaisa and Sapas

Golden AWS

Golden Hotels has successfully completed the migration of its SAP solutions ecosystem to the cloud with Costaisa and Sapas, its hosting and support providers, respectively. Both companies belong to the same business group, so it has been possible to take advantage of synergies in the team and resources dedicated to the project.

The transition to the cloud was key for Golden, since its activity is subject to strong seasonality and meant having an oversized technological infrastructure in times of low activity. Adapting infrastructures and services to the rhythm of the activity has allowed it to reduce its costs by more than 30%, guaranteeing the same level of service.

As Pere Aragonès, CEO of Golden Hotels, points out, "the migration to the Amazon cloud allows us to obtain a more flexible cost model, adapted at all times to the needs of the company, and positions us to evolve more quickly in accordance with the new business needs.

Golden is a family-owned business group with a workforce of more than 700 employees, headquartered in Pineda de Mar and a track record of more than 50 years in the holiday tourism sector. With a total of 2,000 rooms, it offers accommodation in Costa Brava, Costa Dorada and Costa de Barcelona, in six owned hotels and another under management; and it is planned to expand the management of three or four more establishments in the next three years with the aim of sharing its know-how and further improving the experiences of many more customers.

For more than a decade Sapas has been responsible for the maintenance and update services of Golden Hotels' SAP systems and Costaisa's participation has been key in the project, as it is a partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the provision of infrastructure and implementation of cloud migration projects, both in the provision of consulting, parameterization, deployment and maintenance services, as well as in the marketing of its products and services.
