Challenge

The Telco Prime was at a competitive disadvantage due to the time and resource required to build a new platform within a critical deadline

Historically, the Telco’s approach to their Business and Operations management of the organisational contracts had been a bespoke ring-fenced solution each time, costing significant time, resource and budget

Having worked on a solution internally for 18 months, they were unable to deliver a design that would meet the Defence requirements

"SecureCloud+ provided an agile experienced team which included skilled Subject Matter Experts to design and implement a multi-tenanted platform."

Requirements
