Keysource have been working with Towers Watson for over 10 years as their European critical environment partner. In 2016 Towers Watson merged with international insurance provider; Willis Group. Following the merger, the business embarked on a global IT transformation project to consolidate and migrate all internal and client data to common platforms.
As the enlarged business’ data centre transformation partner, Keysource provided the initial consultancy and evaluation of Willis Towers Watson’s existing systems and requirements. The team also worked with WTW to understand their future strategy and requirements, and proposed a number of potential options.
Having recommended an option, Keysource were appointed to develop a framework for the business’ strategic upgrade of two UK data centres, which now needed to support 38 major European offices as well as smaller satellite offices.
Despite the challenges, the project was managed seamlessly, without a single server fail or downtime throughout the entirety of the upgrades. The resulting data centres are more than just an upgraded technical specification as a consequence. The client has been able to consolidate its data centre estate, reduce overheads, offer a secure, highly available, service to customers and improve the efficiency of its business functions, helping cement it as a global leader in its sector.
