The IT Leader's Guide to Multicloud Readiness
This guide provides practical key insights and important factors to consider to make informed decisions in your multicloud journey.
Last week, we were very fortunate to have one of our customers, Partners In Health (PIH), join us for a webinar. If you are not familiar with PIH, it’s a Boston based non-profit global healthcare organization with a mission to provide a preferential option for the poor in healthcare. PIH works with sister organizations that are based in settings of poverty to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need, and also, to serve as an antidote to disappear.
Dave Mayo is a 25 year veteran of the technology industry, and for the last two years, Dave has been leading technology for Partners in Health. Together with Kent Larson, Director within Perficient’s Microsoft practice, and David Chapman, Director of Change Management within our Management Consulting practice, the three speakers spoke about the global deployment of Office 365 at PIH.
Many successful non-profits run lean, and PIH is no exception. Putting money back into the field for ten years equated to ten years of neglected technology. As Dave stated during the session, the non-profit organization was using decade-old hardware, which was failing, and failing fast. This was also spread across three email platforms. To add to that, email is mission critical for PIH… essentially a life and death type of application. PIH chose to partner with Microsoft and implement Office 365. Together, Perficient and Partners In Health have worked to successfully deploy Office 365 in some of the most remote areas of the world – think Malawi, Liberia, Rwanda.
It was a fantastic session from start to finish, and I encourage anyone interested to check out the replay here. You can also review the case study, which focuses on the Change Management aspect of the project.
