● Transition of over 400 servers from traditional on premise datacentres to cloud hosted solutions and decommission of old datacentres.

● Rationalisation and improvement of identity management systems to standardise one one robust solution.

● End user experience transformation of current Citrix solution to improve access in a remote/office hybrid working fashion.

● Refresh and optimisation of WAN model within the councils to reduce cost and complexity.

● VOIP telephony upgrade from on premise system to cloud solution

The first step will be to familiarise yourself with the current infrastructure situation, the work already undertaken and to complete a detailed business case with full cost benefit analysis. Contract negotiations and management will follow.
Thereafter, establish detailed work plans to ensure that key milestones are met and that technical resources are scheduled and managed.
