Capgemini in the UK will support Barts Health Trust with modernising its ICT estate through the adoption of a multi-cloud strategy.
Capgemini and Barts Health NHS Trust, one of the largest NHS Trust in the UK, have announced a three-year framework agreement seeking to modernise the Trust’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) estate through the adoption of cloud technologies. Under the agreement, Capgemini will support the Trust’s digital transformation delivering cloud services across multiple providers to all 5 hospitals within the Trust.
Capgemini was selected, following a competitive tender process, to help the Trust with end to end cloud services, including assessment and migration of mission critical workloads to multiple cloud providers, ongoing management and security solutions.
Matt Howell, Head of Public Sector at Capgemini in the UK, commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Barts Health Trust to help with its digital transformation by revamping its ICT services. As the largest NHS Trust, and one of the pioneers in taking a step towards modernising its IT infrastructure through migrating the services to the cloud, the Trust will benefit from a more secure, scalable and agile operating environment that is more cost effective than current legacy IT infrastructure. The move is a testimony to the Trust’s innovation to offer a better experience for patients and reinforces Capgemini’s commitment to the NHS and the healthcare sector in the UK.”
Sarah Jensen, CIO, Barts Health Trust, said: “As Barts Health continues its ambitious journey to modernise the technology solutions it provides to staff and patients, we look forward to this next important strategic step with our chosen partner Capgemini. With their existing experience in providing cloud hosting services and digital transformation solutions to the NHS, we are excited about the journey we have started together and are confident our partnership will continue to add value in our ever-challenging environment which ultimately leads to better care for patients.”
