Proact supports water authority with migration to state-of-the-art workspaces

Water Authority Rivierenland is responsible for water control across Dutch river areas. Its staff work on a variety of tasks, including water management (maintenance, water levels, water quality), looking after dikes and (drainage) quays, management and maintenance of specific roads and the treatment of waste water. The organisation employs around 1,200 people and its headquarters are located in Tiel.

Challenge

Water authorities perform a crucial role in keeping the Netherlands dry. Obviously, technology plays a pivotal role when it comes to water management, as well as having the right processes. In 2017, the water authority decided to implement a new financial application. As this new system required among others a 64-bit environment, Rivierenland decided to upgrade its existing 32-bit based VDI platform to a new, up-to-date Windows 10 environment, based on VMware’s virtualisation technology.

Solution

The migration project consisted of three subprojects, including transitioning from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016, upgrading to Active Directory 2016 and migrating to a new Windows 10-based VDI. Proact offered expertise and resources for all three subprojects.

Proact has proven to be a flexible knowledge partner that has helped us migrate seamlessly.
