A large UK housing association turned to Thrive to support its move to Hybrid Cloud.
The housing association was looking for a way to accelerate its journey to becoming a digital enterprise by adopting a Cloud-first vision for its IT infrastructure. The company’s aging compute and storage infrastructure was reaching end-of-life, increasing the cost of maintenance and negatively impacting the user experience. After a recent merger, the company needed to standardize business applications across the business and achieve a more agile and scalable way of managing its IT.
Thrive performed a detailed Cloud-readiness assessment to understand the company’s current IT environment, business objectives and outcomes. The audit revealed greater benefits and better return on investment by adopting a private Cloud environment. Thrive tailored a private Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution that was fully aligned to the requirements of the business and applications. The Thrive team followed a proven migration methodology to ensure the seamless transition without disruption of core services with a phased approach to complete the newly-built private Cloud infrastructure.
By migrating to a secure and resilient Cloud platform with Thrive, the company addressed the reliability and end-user challenges they were facing and created an IT environment with 100% uptime. The company’s more agile and scalable way of managing its IT allows its in-house IT team to spend less time on the day-to-day management of the IT infrastructure and more time focused on delivering applications to support business objectives. In addition to reducing costs by repurposing existing licensing investments, including Microsoft OS and SQL, the company laid a foundation for its digital transformation, delivering the functionality of core systems in a seamless and dynamic digital layer.
