An Post
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is the UK government department responsible for generating sustainable growth and productivity in modern Britain by supporting successful business, ensuring fair markets and promoting world-class science and innovation.

In 1998 BIS, then known as the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI), awarded Fujitsu a 10 year contract, subsequently extended to 2014, under which Fujitsu took ownership of the Department’s existing IT assets and related services and responsibility for optimising operational performance.

To address its e-mail storage and management requirements the Department looked at a number of possible solutions that would enable it to enforce a new e-mail archiving and deletion policy, improve information retrieval and free up expensive server storage space.
