*NEW RESEARCH* Flagship Group goes all in on AWS

*NEW RESEARCH* Flagship goes all in on AWSA series of acquisitions gave housing provider Flagship Group scope to exploit significant procurement synergies, an imperative that drove the company to explore innovative approaches to IT delivery designed to improve the services it provides for 70,000 tenants.

To that end the company migrated almost its entire IT estate into Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure during 2020 with the help of managed service provider Digital Space (formerly Timico). The project involved shifting 140 servers, 600 browser based desktops, 50 applications and 150 contact centre agents into cloud hosted platforms, and is expected to deliver £250k of cost savings a year over a five year period.
