Data centre migration helps SEGRO manage its property portfolio

29th June 2015

With its ageing IT infrastructure approaching end-of-life, SEGRO needed to rethink its entire IT strategy and make the best use of limited in-house resources.  It embarked on the search for a technology partner it could work with through its IT transformation. 

Business Challenge:

SEGRO recognised it needed to find a technology partner capable of designing and building its new data centre, as well as hosting both its production and recovery environments.

“Out of the six or so companies we talked to, only three could offer what we were looking for. We already knew Sungard AS’s reputation and track record. We expected them to provide high availability and having spoken to other IT managers about their experience with Sungard AS, we were filled with confidence. Sungard AS demonstrated great maturity in being able to articulate and demonstrate their achievements and capabilities. We just felt more comfortable with them. Everything was right on paper but it was more intangible than that – Sungard AS came across as the ultimate professionals with first-class experience who would successfully meet our needs.”

— Andrew Terry, IT Manager, SEGRO
