Balfour Beatty Chooses Fujitsu Data Center and Managed Desktop Services

"Much faster response times from the Fujitsu team help us keep the company running smoothly and maximise our employees’ productivity. It is also helping us drive down associated costs and operate in a more agile fashion"

Julia Rogers, Business Services Director, Balfour Beatty

The customer

Balfour Beatty plc is a multinational infrastructure group with capabilities in professional services, construction services, support services and infrastructure investments. The company operates in over 80 countries and employs over 40,000 people, working for customers in the UK, the US, South-East Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

For more than 100 years, the company has created and cared for the vital assets that enable societies and economies to grow: road and rail; airports, seaports, tunnels and bridges; health and education facilities; heat, light, power and water; places to live and places to work – the infrastructure that underpins society and drives progress.

The challenge

Balfour Beatty wanted to consolidate its disparate UK IT infrastructure into one integrated platform that would be more efficient and cost-effective.

The solution

Fujitsu was selected to host and manage its data in a shared storage environment, using a combination of physical and cloud-based virtual data centres. Fujitsu is also providing desktop services and support for 14,500 users in the UK.

The benefit

  • By consolidating 1,500 servers in ten data rooms onto Fujitsu’s London data centres, Balfour Beatty is driving down costs and significantly reducing its energy consumption
  • Faster incident resolution improves employee productivity
  • The project has improved efficiency and enabled growth, helping the business to operate in a more flexible and agile way
