Digital transformation consultancy SystemsUp has been selected by Farrer & Co LLP to deliver wide-ranging technology transformation across the firm using Microsoft Azure.
For the next two years SystemsUp will work in partnership with Farrer & Co to enhance productivity and user experience across the organisation by moving it to a secure Azure hybrid cloud platform and a collaborative next generation desktop environment based on Office 365 and Windows 10. A key element of this will be the delivery of the guidance and change management required to fully exploit these technologies as both organisations believe that to be become digital in delivery there is a requirement to evolve knowledge, skills and processes in a carefully planned manner.
Neil Davison, IT Director for Farrer & Co, said: “With our IT infrastructure and environmental systems reaching the end of their useful life, we were presented a rare opportunity to replace every part of our infrastructure with an entirely new, next generation IT platform which would help us transform service delivery. SystemsUp were selected due to their unparalleled understanding of Azure and the quality of every team member we met.”
Whilst Farrer & Co are a firm with a rich history they are also willing adopters of new technology, with a cloud and mobile first strategy dating back to 2013. The move to Azure with the help of SystemsUp is the next stage of that journey.
Nick Martin, Managing Director of SystemsUp, said: “We are delighted and excited to be working with Neil and his team at Farrer & Co on the delivery of excellent technology that will deliver real results in terms of modern, forward thinking solutions that will underpin performance improvement right across their organisation. By exploiting Microsoft’s cloud technology in the right way we can bring them significant business outcomes and positive change.”
SystemsUp helps clients across the public and private sector to get the best out of collaborative solutions and cloud services to enable real business transformation. It is part of managed cloud services provider iomart (AIM: IOM) which is one of the sponsors for the British Legal Technology Forum 2018.
