FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres helps the Environment Agency to reach more people in the event of severe weather by exploiting new and emerging communications channels

FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres helps the Environment Agency to reach more people in the event of severe weather by exploiting new and emerging communications channels

Customer

The Environment Agency is a non-departmental public body, established in 1996, with responsibilities to protect and improve the environment in England. The Flood Warning Service is shared with Natural Resources Wales. Both organisations have responsibility for managing the risk of flooding from rivers, reservoirs, estuaries and the sea.

Challenge

The Environment Agency was using a twelve-year-old system to support the communication of flood warnings to affected citizens. It wanted to refresh this vital service by moving to the cloud and introducing new media channels.

Solution

Following a thorough competitive evaluation, the Agency selected Fujitsu as its partner. Together they migrated Floodline Warnings Direct to a modern, flexible, cloud-based, alert-as-a-service platform, based on FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres.

Benefit

  • Improved scalability enables the service to reach more people, more quickly
  • A significant reduction in licensing and technology costs has contributed to an overall reduction in Flood Warning Service running costs
