Providing secure, remote access for staff at the University of Oxford

What Was The Challenge?

1 – University of Oxford wanted remote staff to get the same level of IT access as they enjoyed on-site
2 – The solution needed to be high performance, easy to use and available 24/7
3 – Robust security, beyond traditional passwords was essential

The Point

Oxford is consistently ranked as one of the top ten universities in the world. Its Business Services and Projects (BSP) team identified a need for staff to have excellent remote access to IT resources.

This would support the University’s ongoing strategy and objectives, while ensuring greater business continuity in case of major disruption.

CAE worked with BSP to identify and deliver an outstanding solution.

Tech transformation energises Borough Council

What Was The Challenge?

1 – Council wanted to create a digital environment for employees and councillors
2 – Policy-makers were on a mission to reduce paper and printing

Video conferencing boosts agility for Northamptonshire Police

What Was The Challenge?

1 – Northamptonshire Police needed a faster, better way for handling briefings and decisions
2 – Staff travel across a huge rural area was eating into valuable time and budget
3 – A secure collaboration solution was needed that would work easily for everyone connection

The Point

As a small force covering a large rural area of the UK, Northamptonshire Police needed a way to use its resources more effectively to solve crime and keep its community safe.

Key intelligence needed sharing and critical decisions had to be made throughout each day.

However, face-to-face meetings were consuming precious time and money.

Northamptonshire knew video conferencing was the answer: a solution allowing the Force to make full use of its existing Cisco communications platform. This could be shared easily with neighbouring forces in Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire and would offer significant additional benefits.
