The trust, which provides general acute and emergency services to approximately 240,000 people across Wiltshire, Dorset, and Hampshire, was being restricted by its legacy infrastructure stack and therefore looking for ways to assess, transform and modernise its infrastructure services.
Building on their existing relationship with ANS, the trust engaged the cloud service provider to undertake an independent strategic recommendation, accompanied by a full business case to evidence the investment. ANS agnostically assessed the options available, and modelled these for technical, operational and commercial performance. Following the assessment, the trust was able to secure a significant IT budget while continuing to improve their services at a reduced cost.
The readiness assessment carried out by ANS has been invaluable to the trust. ANS were able to analyse our entire infrastructure and highlight potential adjustments that will enhance the way we deliver our life-saving services to the local community Andy Cowling, Director of Informatics at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust
