Proact's integrated infrastructure solution supports development projectDownload the case study
Easy access to the best services
Havas UK was in the midst of building “Havas Villages”, locations which provide staff with full capabilities under one roof, and needed help developing its IT infrastructure across these new sites. This integrated structure had been designed to meet the ever-changing needs of Havas UK’s clients, allowing easy access to the best services and skills to exceed customer requirements.
Havas UK is part of the Havas Media Group, an international network of industry leading media communications agencies which offer a wide range of communications services. The Havas Media Group operates in over 100 countries, employing more than 18,600 people, and is the fastest growing global communications and marketing group.
Data will be protected across all sites
Integrated data platform, accessible by multiple users
With two backup targets, no information will be lost
In order to ensure that staff had full IT capabilities across seven new sites, Havas UK needed an integrated structure to help employees meet customer requirements. The media agency also needed to make sure that all of its data was secure and could be accessed by multiple users, including those who use Mac workstations.
Proact deployed a NetApp FAS solution across the seven sites, along with backup targets in two data centres, to ensure that the agency's data remained backed-up and secure at all times. Proact’s Professional Services and Project Management were also chosen to support this work, enabling a seamless migration to the new infrastructure solution. Havas ultimately benefited from a consolidated environment that enables staff to collaborate and work remotely.
Our biggest challenge over the 12 months is not only to bring together our two groups and work closer, but to find the technology and partners to deliver the complex environment needed to support our clients.
