Project Delivery Excellence to the Masters

With over 10,000 members, the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is the premier, longest-serving body for project management in Australia. As the key promoter, developer and leader in project management professionalism, as recognised by Australian business, industry and government alike.

With a vision of being regarded as a world authority on project management practices and competency, and to provide top quality and relevant services to our members and partners – a technology partnership with Qbt Consulting was a natural choice.

Case details

Client name:
Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM)
Location:
North Sydney, NSW
Category:
Private & Public Cloud, Support
Architect:
Simon Gillett

CHALLENGE

After working with another IT Services Provider and feeling left in the dark for some time, AIPM was in need of a solid, trustworthy, transparent partnership that enabled them to expand and reach their technology powered goals.

SOLUTION

Given their reliance on the internet to organise, deliver and track their memberships and offerings, the choice was made to migrate AIPM to the Cloud in a hybrid model – utilising Office 365 for email and collaboration workloads and Qbt Consulting’s DCX data center as their secure computing and file storage platform. This environment hosts their entire file directory, CRM system and computing platform.

RESULTS

At the completion of the Exchange 2007 to Office 365 migration, along with the migration and configuration of a new computing platform, backup and DR process, AIPM now enjoy a complete Cloud-based technology solution with zero reliance on the head office for productivity and service availability. Running costs are, as a result, lower and more forecastable being based on a service model and collaboration and advisory channels are free-flowing and transparent.
