The benefits

Move to a better IT infrastructure

We’ll help you get the best out of your IT systems by making the right changes and managing the risk. Our experienced people will guide you through the process, so you get the best from your existing systems and bring in the technology that helps you transform your business.

Get the right balance
By looking at IT in its overall business context, we can help you manage change across the organisation including the people, processes and technology, and make sure you get migration right first time.

Lower the risks of migration
We’ll assess your systems, assess the risks and minimise them. For instance, we can use our migration platform to test your applications and see how they run in a virtual environment.

Make a smooth transition
By working with you to manage the process from start to finish, our experts keep disruption to a minimum. Our detailed plan includes roles, responsibilities and quality checks. And you’ll get a programme manager and a transformation architect to make sure it stays on track.

Cut your costs and carbon emissions
You could do more with less by making the move to better IT systems. And that could mean using less space and less energy – and having a smaller carbon footprint.We’ve helped customers cut infrastructure costs by more than 60 per cent.

The service cost just 15 to 20 per cent of what it would have taken to find, configure and maintain a dedicated server traditionally.”
- Miguel Ángel de Manuel, CIO, Grupo Konecta

With the virtual data centre, we saw no start-up costs, and as far as we were concerned that gave us the better financial return.”
- Paul Fisher, Assistant Director, Children’s Services (Business and Compliance), Norfolk County Council

Industry-leading skills, experience and methods

We have extensive experience in developing and implementing IT systems both in the UK and around the world. We’ll work with you to understand and define the opportunities for change and assess the best outcome for you. We manage more than 25,000 servers for more than 2,200 customers’ platforms across 45 global data centres.

That experience means we can provide the latest technology, but also back it with the professional expertise to make sure you get the full benefits.

It’s a combination the industry recognises. When we launched On Demand Compute, Dustin Kehoe, Principal Analyst, Current Analysis, said: “BT is one of the very first movers in Europe with its infrastructure as a service offer and the only global provider that will be deploying this service across a vast network of data centres both in the UK and Europe. Other differentiators include a strong central platform allowing customers to provision services on the fly and a solid professional services organisation to support customers with higher end requirements.”

We swept the board at the 12th annual World Communication Awards 2010, picking up four awards for Best Global Operator, Best Wholesale Carrier, Best Technology Foresight and The Green Award. We were also highly commended in Best Customer Care. The chairman of the judges singled out our BT Compute innovation as a factor in making our Global Operator award win ‘thoroughly deserved’.

We also picked up three awards for innovation at the Global Telecoms Business Awards in 2010.
