Bury Metropolitan Council
“Advising on how best to design and build a new data environment to ensure valuable information is stored securely and efficiently - sending the workflow to where the space is; underpinned by an infrastructure optimisation has been the main stay of SCC's partnership with Bury. ”
Local schools, citizens and council workers in the Bury Metropolitan area in Lancashire, are benefiting from more effective communications and efficient services due to the modernisation of the Council's IT infrastructure.
Bury Metropolitan Borough Council, one of the ten Greater Manchester Authorities, serves around 200,000 people and providing for the needs of this thriving and diverse community, whilst meeting Government targets to improve delivery, is a constant challenge.
SCC has supported the Council's aim to improve its services and reduce costs by designing and implementing a new data network - assisting with an infrastructure migration, from mainframe systems to Windows-based servers, and installing the latest versions of Microsoft's key server-based applications. In the process, overall management costs have been significantly reduced.
