CASE STUDY - Cloud Transformation - Education

"We wanted to provide a platform that encouraged learning and used IT as an enabler." James Cook - Integy Architect

Integy were asked to provide technical leadership, define the IT strategy, and implement change for a growing multi-academy trust.

Client Challenge

The trust was met with the realisation that a dispersed IT infrastructure did not meet their needs going forward and as a result change was required. To fully realise future goals the trust had three major challenges to overcome with budgetary constraints.

  • Ageing hardware. Both server and client device hardware nearing the end of its lifecycle
  • Duplication of systems. Each school acting in silo with no means of collaboration.
  • Connectivity. Multiple schools spread over a vast geographical location


As a technology partner Integy’s approach was to adopt industry standard techniques and identify the core requirements of a target operating model.

Via collaborative workshops, design clinics and proof of concepts a target state architecture was developed.

Based on the approved target state Integy delivered the cloud elements as part of a successful deployment.


Based on the Microsoft core technology stack with a cloud first approach Integy were able to deliver a streamlined centralised IT infrastructure that met the needs of the trust now, and in the future.

Integy successfully guided the client in simplifying their IT operations and providing users with a consistent user experience.

  • Simplified logon solution with a single identity
  • Improved security and web protection regardless of device
  • Resiliency across all systems, inbuilt DR and backup
  • Flexibility, the ability to connect from any location on any device and receive the same experience
  • Consumption based cost model, ensuring a consistent known cost
  • Zero capital outlay on hardware, extending the life of client hardware
  • Streamlined device build, automating the process
  • Future reductions in Wide Area Network costs
