IT Resilience for Complex Construction Projects

01 Jan 2020 Construction

Morgan Sindall is a leading UK construction and regeneration group. But their IT resilience was missing. Backups were skipped, software support outdated and systems failing. As a result, they were burning IT resources on day-to-day firefighting. And more significantly, their failing infrastructure was the biggest barrier to broader transformation. Now, our UK Managed Services has helped them take a big leap towards innovation.

  • Stability and security for growth
  • Resilience to launch new 24/7 system
  • Smooth Migration

performance improved overnight

We quickly got the measure of existing issues. By working closely together, we identified better alternatives. We not only drove up resilience but maximised investments too. For example, in the past, lack of support left parts of their infrastructure vulnerable and exposed.

a platform for transformation

We worked to an aggressive deadline to manage the smooth transition to our data centre. All with no loss in service for the wider business. With performance issues a distant memory, we then seamlessly increased capacity by adding 150 new virtual machines.

Immediately, this meant Morgan Sindall could fast-track the launch of a 24/7 online system used by a new maintenance division.

In conclusion, our UK Managed Services have delivered the ongoing level of stability and security needed for growth and innovation. Together, we created a springboard to drive digital transformation forward.
