Congratulations to our Winner
Winner | Commonwealth Games Telecommunications Infrastructure Project, Fujitsu
This project provided telecommunications infrastructure and associated services, which enabled both in-venue and Games wide connectivity, critical communications and internet access services to support the Commonwealth Games. Fujitsu had 137 working days to deliver the solution. The previous supplier had failed to deliver their obligations and were terminated in January 2022. This provided Fujitsu with limited time to deliver the project that was originally planned for 18 months; the go-live date being immovable for the Opening Ceremony on 28th July 22.
Given the successful delivery of the project by Fujitsu, to time, scope and budget, it was an immense achievement.
Judges Special Mention | Sopra Steria: Migration of services to Microsoft Azure for a nuclear decommissioning Site Licence Company (SLC), Sopra Steria
Successful migration of services to Microsoft Azure for a nuclear decommissioning Site Licence Company (SLC). An incredibly pressured project, with significant risk and sensitivity given the nature of our client and the situation faced - a key supplier hosting both ours and our customer's data entering liquidation.
This was an unplanned, unexpected 'emergency' project that had to be initiated, planned and delivered under significant pressure and was completed at great success.
