Case Study Overview

VIVID was formed from a merger between two Hampshire based associations and needed to consolidate and update its IT infrastructure into a cohesive solution that delivered the scale, flexibility,reliability and efficiency the organisation needs to work as a unified team and deliver the desired customer experience.

CDW introduced an end-to-end solution, enabling VIVID’s transition to a new colocated data centre with storage, back-up and disaster recovery platforms built in. This offers a cost effective managed service with capacity to meet current needs and accommodate future expansion.
