Notting Hill Housing Trust has contracted Advanced 365 to deliver a private cloud managed IT service for four years with the option of extending it for a further two years. This outsourced IT service contract at £7.43m, will be key to supporting NHHT’s growth plans and flexible working environment. It will also enable improved communications between NHHT and its tenants. The outsourced IT service is being delivered in a phased approach with the final phase due for completion 31 March 2012.
NHHT will be provided with a range of new managed and hosted applications including Microsoft email, an instant messaging solution to be rolled-out to both staff and customers, a new customer relationship management solution and a SharePoint solution. As the IT applications will be hosted at two different data centres, this will ensure disaster recovery contingency. Advanced 365 will also be deploying a range of shared managed infrastructure services including storage, back-up, monitoring and anti-virus infrastructure.
