Case Study Overview
During 10 years of rapid growth, which included several mergers and acquisitions, Medigold Health had accumulated a large number of legacy infrastructure services and a complicated range of applications.
Medigold Health’s IT team was fully occupied in trying to make this disparate set of services work together, which distracted from the strategic initiatives the organisation needed in order to move forward.
Medigold Health understood the need for fundamental change at both the application and infrastructure levels of its IT services. The team therefore took a 'greenfield' approach to its search for a solution that would be able to meet the organisation's growing needs.
CDW was selected as the organisation's IT services and solutions partner with industry expertise and vendor knowledge to help Medigold Health find a workable way forward.
One of Medigold Health's ambitions was to work towards a cloud-first strategy, which meant extending and optimising its use of Microsoft Azure. CDW's JumpStart programme provided a foundation for this process. The programme delivered a blueprint for best practice in the cloud, based on an appraisal of Medigold Health’s existing application landscape how it might be migrated.
With new and updated frameworks in place to support cloud migration and optimise applications, Medigold Health is moving more confidently and dynamically towards its IT objectives.
"Like many other organisations, we have to justify our spending
proposals, and the documentation we put together with CDW’s help
provided the cost and benefit analysis that we needed to enable
the modernisation project to take place."
