BBC Media Action now communicates via Microsoft Office 365 and Azure globally

"Fujitsu’s support and wealth of experience allows us to concentrate on creating a repeatable Office 365 roll out model. We can now communicate globally across multiple time-zones with a solid IT infrastructure."

Jayson Style Project Manager, BBC Media Action

Fujitsu partnered with BBC Media Action to help support the design and implementation of a global IT function for 17 global offices which means data can be shared easily.

Customer

Founded in 1999, BBC Media Action is the BBC’s international development charity, funded independently by external grants and voluntary contributions. It aims to use media communication to reduce poverty, improve health and support people in partnership with the BBC World Service and other local development partners in over 35 developing and transitional countries.

Challenge

Diverse and mostly unsupported IT systems in remote offices made communication problematic for BBC Media Action. It wanted to find a reliable, standardised platform that could easily be deployed in 17 countries.

Solution

BBC Media Action used its existing relationship with corporate partner Fujitsu to support the development of a global IT infrastructure. This improved collaboration between local offices, enabled the sharing of resources while also supporting the upskilling of local staff.

Benefit

  • BBC Media Action can now communicate globally across multiple time-zones using a seamless IT infrastructure designed by BBC Media Action, with support and guidance from Fujitsu
  • Diverse offices across 17 countries will be able to collaborate in real-time, increasing efficiencies for the vital work undertaken by the charity in Africa, Asia and Middle Eastern Europe
