Industry: Healthcare

Solution: Cloud

Challenge

Logicalis and Peninsula Health had been discussing the move to public cloud for a number of months when the COVID-19 pandemic began to emerge. As the organisation started to prepare for the worst case scenario, it was obvious to the group they would need to make some drastic and quick decisions to keep their facilities running and get 1000 back office staff working remotely.

Solution

Within a week a proof of concept (POC) was created, demonstrating our recommended solution of Citrix Cloud on Microsoft Azure using Logicalis’ Production Ready Cloud Platform capabilities. The full deployment took place a week later for 1,000 staff members. Logicalis was able to do this at speed and scale by leaning on the Cloud maturity model that has served many organisations including the Department of Health and Human
Services, in Victoria, Australia. On top of this, Logicalis also implemented Azure multi-factor authentication to ensure patient data wasappropriately secured.

Benefits

  • Quickly enabled staff to work remotely with safe secure access to everything they needed.
  • Swift deployment with the organisation going from zero Cloud technologies to production ready for its entire back office operation in two weeks
  • Potential to unlock future capability with less requirements for office space, delivering cost
    savings and productivity gains.
