RSK approached BCN shortly after they had commissioned an on-premise server, with the objective of delivering a highly available environment. However, experiencing business interruption resulting in high levels of maintenance, we discovered the business was operating on a standard version of Exchange. BCN were asked to provide options which would not only resolve their current issues but would allow for future expansion.
RSK is a fully integrated, environmental, health, safety and engineering consultancy employing more than 4,000 staff worldwide. A highly acquisitive, fast growth business, RSK required an IT partner to provide advice and support on their infrastructure transformation.
RSK approached BCN Group shortly after they had commissioned an on premise 2013 server running on a cluster of four servers, with the objective of delivering a highly available environment. However, they were experiencing business interruption resulting in high levels of maintenance. We soon discovered that this was because they were operating on a standard version of Exchange. This had limitations relating to number and size of databases.
RSK were on an acquisition trail and this problem was becoming critical. BCN Group were asked to provide options which would not only resolve their current issues but would allow for future expansion.
We proposed two solutions:
BCN advised RSK that Office 365 was the best option for them in the medium-longer term. With each acquisition RSK could quickly and easily add user licenses to their environment as and when they needed to, using BCN Group’s customer portal. They could also flex their Azure storage to suit demands.
Once the solution was agreed and road-mapped, BCN Group set about delivering the solution as follows:
Since this initial project RSK has acquired more businesses and BCN Group continue to provide consultancy and support, assisting them with additional Office 365 requirements on a weekly basis.
BCN Group has also migrated RSK to Azure, delivering four key projects involving the migration of business critical applications which manage workflow and projects (they have upwards of 10k projects at any one time).
The advice and support given by BCN Group has provided a robust and flexible environment for this highly acquisitive and fast-growth business. As RSK’s IT partner, we look forward to supporting new projects and optimising technologies moving forward.
Wilfrid Smith’s managed IT services provider BCN Group offered the senior management a discovery session to look at potential improvements to their legacy environment. This discovery day enabled BCN to recommend the migration to Office 365 and advise of the benefits, capabilities and cost savings it could bring to their organisation.
Due to an ineffective disaster recovery plan, P&B Foods suffered an unsophisticated malware attack, highlighting the need to transition to a new IT provider. BCN developed a clear strategy to accelerate their digital transformation, giving P&B the confidence they needed to plan for organic growth and make future strategic acquisitions.
Rapid growth meant that their small internal IT team couldn’t facilitate both the current level of management required by their systems, and the need to develop a strategy for the future planned growth of the business, without incurring significant additional costs. To ensure that the business could operate optimally, perform cost-efficiently and grow effectively, BCN Group became their Fully Managed Service Provider.
