Farrer & Co LLP has completed its move to the public cloud, making it one of the first law firms in the UK to migrate its entire infrastructure into Microsoft Azure.
The 18 month project was completed in partnership with cloud consultancy SystemsUp – part of managed cloud provider iomart – with the migration itself taking place over one weekend.
Andy Beech, Head of IT Systems at Farrers, who managed the project on behalf of the firm, says, “SystemsUp have been fundamental to every aspect – the design work, the delivery, the management of third parties – they’ve architected the whole thing with our internal team.”
“It’s been a very exciting time for all of us,” explains Neil Davison, IT Director at Farrers. “SystemsUp have helped us with a complete technology transformation and given us a great platform for change. We now need to make the best use of the technologies that are available in Azure to deliver commercial advantage through a cloud-focused experience for our business and our clients.”
Farrer is now working with SystemsUp on the next phase of its digital transformation – a complete mobilisation of the firm’s workforce.
