New leadership identified gaps in service delivery
When Ian Cohen took up his position as Group CIO, the company was suffering from poor service delivery and an unacceptable level of outages, despite outsourcing its infrastructure management. However, there was the potential of considerable cost penalties if it could not transition to a new partner in the prescribed timeframe.
A 2 week feasibility report provided necessary clarity and direction
Company85 were engaged to carry out a risk assessment and project assurance project: the report identified eight different move methodologies for applications and associated servers and proposed a structured resourcing plan including phased out-of-hours work to ensure business could continue as normal.
Whole project was achieved on time, within budget and with minimal disruption
Company85 went on to win the competitive tender for the migration project and, with the clear project plan in place, the incoming and outgoing suppliers signed agreements within one month of initiation. The final result is a fully transitioned estate managed by a new off-shore partner.
We chose Company85 because they had solid depth of experience in data centre transformation. Ian Cohen, Group CIO, JLT
