HM Revenue & Customs digital transformation journey supported by Fujitsu through the migration of legacy IT to the cloud

"Fujitsu supported HMRC’s digital transformation journey delivering its first high volume migration of legacy IT to the cloud."

Fujitsu migrated and virtualised 900 of HMRC’s 1,200 Development and Test servers delivering a flexible, scalable and cost-effective development/test platform.

Customer

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) was formed following the merger of the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise Government departments. It is the UK’s tax, payments and customs authority and provides services to 50 million customers nationwide. HMRC’s vision is to become the most digitally tax advanced tax authority in the world. To achieve this, HMRC is introducing new digital services to transform the experience of its customers, and is using the latest technology to change how it works internally.

Challenge

HMRC’s aging Development and Test data centre was reaching end of life and becoming less cost-effective to maintain. It wanted to find a more flexible solution that would meet the standards needed to continue operations, consolidate its estate and support its broader digital transformation vision.

Solution

Fujitsu virtualised 75% of HMRC’s Development and Test servers to its private cloud platform, FAST. The remaining servers were either physically transferred to Fujitsu’s Tier 3 accredited data centre or decommissioned in just two weeks.

Benefit

  • Fujitsu’s fully transparent and flexible cloud services cost model means that HMRC now only pays for what it uses, reducing cost to HMRC by 25%
  • FAST provides a flexible, scalable and virtualised development/test platform with more in-built resilience than traditional physical hardware
  • Reduced carbon footprint and improved security/resilience
