Making the Leap – Update

In Business, Cloud by Rob, COOLeave a Comment

RedPixie is building an entirely new Cloud based I.T. Infrastructure for social mobility charity Making the Leap (MTL). MTL specialise in helping young people, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, recognise and reach their potential in the workplace (www.makingtheleap.org.uk).

The growth and success of the charity has outpaced the investment made in IT over the years which now needs modernising to provide a better experience for beneficiaries (known as Associates and Fellows) and to enable MTL to achieve their ambition of developing and implementing a digital strategy.

RedPixie has architected a solution that has already seen super fast broadband implemented to dramatically increase productivity and reach. All desktops will shortly be upgraded to Windows 10 and all business services provided through Azure Active Directory and Office 365 (Not for profit licensing).

This combination immediately provides MTL with a highly performant and cost effective environment that offers superior capability, functionality, security and storage compared to the current on-premises solution whilst reducing the overhead for maintenance and support. The new environment is also highly scalable, will introduce remote working capability and will allow MTL to adopt additional cloud based applications over time e.g. Finance System, CRM, Registration System etc.

RedPixie has always been committed to developing and nurturing talent within the workplace through our own Intern, Apprenticeship and Graduate Programs and, having seen the impact that Making the Leap is having on young people’s lives, RedPixie has committed to defining and implementing the new Making The Leap I.T. Infrastructure free of charge.
