ANS first engaged with WDS, a Xerox Company, in 2012 to assist with the on-going review of their infrastructure estate in which it operates its data, communications and operations from today.
Backup provision is critical for any organisation to ensure that critical systems and data are not only secure and protected, but recoverable when it matters. However, traditional tape-based backup methods are often labour-intensive and unreliable, and consume valuable time and budget that reap more immediate results and discernable value from other business services. However, underinvestment in this area of IT ultimately puts systems, data and users at risk.
We needed to not only simplify our complicated and manual backup processes, but then remove them from our in-house team. We wanted to free up their time and talent for other projects, but could only do that with the confidence that our backup service was adequately managed by a trusted supplier.

The service allows WDS to move away from routine management and maintenance and instead free up resources for driving forward strategic IT projects.
