"Fujitsu had the best knowledge and met our key criteria in terms of cost, Lotus Notes experience and the ability to analyse and streamline the existing data and applications."
Kim Houston Project Manager, Whitbread
Founded in 1742, Whitbread is the UK’s largest hotel, restaurant and coffee shop operator with 45,000 employees who are passionate about making special experiences for its millions of customers, both in the UK and overseas. Its brands include Costa, the largest and fastest growing coffee shop chain in the UK, which also operates in 31 countries globally, and the UK’s largest hotel chain, Premier Inn.
Whitbread had over 600 IBM Domino applications running on an end-of-life Windows 2000 server. It needed to streamline these applications and upgrade them to a new hardware and software environment to increase performance and availability.
