A local charity in Northampton dealing with Homeless persons had two sites and required a more conjoined solution to their IT. Their current systems are near end of life and require replacement.
Utilising Microsoft Azure and Office365 services, a Cloud based solution was created that allowed their data, emails and line of business applications to be hosted off site.
As the customer is a charity, the licensing costs are much lower than the equivalent to a corporate company, this aided in the decision making process. They were also Granted charity entitlement by Microsoft for free funds – up to certain value for use with Azure services.
Also using Azure means that the servers are scalable – they can upgrade on the fly to meet their demands of temporary staff
Impact and Advantage
Users at each site and remotely can use the same services to access their data. Potential onsite Disaster Recovery has been removed as a concern for the customer.
Services and servers are now faster than before (the old servers were due for replacement).
