Shropshire county council

David is conducting a project scoping exercise, delivering a report, proposal, estimate and presentation for a public sector organisation that needs to change its business model, reorganise its workforce to use alternative ways of working and simplify its operations. The findings from this report are being integrated into a strategic ICT review which will be implemented this year. The council has close to a thousand locations, 3300 users and requires new systems to support this large scale business change project that will save time and money whilst also migrating from complex on premise IT to O365/Azure.
