London-based IT service provider Conosco has been appointed by Croydon Churches Housing Association (CCHA) and Thrive Homes to introduce a ‘digital first’ approach as part of their respective digital transformation strategies.
Conosco has revamped CCHA’s IT infrastructure and migrated its environment away from hosted servers to scalable cloud-based virtual machines, saving considerable IT maintenance and support time each month, with the new cost savings allocated to the housing provider’s tenant-facing services.
For Thrive Homes, Conosco will provide ongoing IT and security support as well as consultancy around new technologies.
John Stenton, head of IT, Thrive Homes, said, “Thrive and Conosco both share the belief that people matter more than anything else, and this will resonate with our end-users. We also have cyber-security ambitions in common, such as automated responses to cyber incidents that further improve our security. I think this will be a great partnership; Conosco will offer our end-users a fantastic service and manage our infrastructure, providing a solid foundation for us to build our future IT strategy on.”
