Helping Reading Borough Council realise the benefits of cloud migration
Agilisys worked in collaboration with Reading Borough Council to deliver a cloud migration, using our tried and tested Delivery Framework developed over 30+ cloud migrations.
Through this programme, Agilisys built a hybrid cloud platform for Reading Borough Council (RBC) that will play an important role in helping the Council realise its Digital Futures strategy. As a result, all RBC business applications were migrated to Azure with a small number of legacy servers moved to a Crown Hosting Data Centre (CHDC) based IaaS platform and co-location facility.
