Joseph Rowntree Foundation
Joseph Rowntree Foundation creates impact in the community by providing more people with care as a result of saving money with their move to Microsoft Azure
As an independent social change organisation working to solve UK poverty, Joseph Rowntree Foundation identified that their ageing infrastructure didn’t provide a platform to enable the organisation to change. This meant that they needed to move to a new internal IT infrastructure that could respond to the varying demands of a modern digital workplace and be one that is both secure, stable and simplified.
Joseph Rowntree Foundation engaged with Phoenix to look at the possibilities and what would deliver impact to the entire organisation and drive it forward. This started with a Surveyor 360 assessment from Phoenix which identifies the appropriate mix of on-premise, hybrid or cloud workloads and helps plan for your future growth.
Phoenix’s unique Surveyor 360 is made up of the following modules and provides a rounded perspective to base business and technical decision on:
- Infrastructure Assessment
- SQL and Data
- Backup, Continuity and DR
Following Surveyor 360, the decision was taken to make the move to Microsoft Azure as it fitted hand in glove with their requirements. Not only would it reduce the risk and cost to the organisation and enable IT to deliver changes, but it would also remove the barriers that their ageing infrastructure were starting to bring.
