Provident Financial: migration to Windows 2000

Reduced costs and increased efficiency

In putting together a business case to replace its hardware and migrate to a new operating system, Provident Financial chose Windows 2000 as its preferred platform because it offered complete compatibility with its existing Windows NT domains, so it would simplify password and data synchronisation, licensing and support.

Furthermore, Provident Financial had already implemented a new system based on Windows 2000, which is designed to improve field staff efficiency and provide better management information and customer detail. A replacement for the company's primary business system is also being developed for use on the Windows 2000 platform.

Provident Financial subsequently went out to tender, to find a company to help design and develop the new Windows 2000 infrastructure and, after an extensive evaluation of suppliers, chose Fujitsu.
