Business Challenge

Fortis Healthcare Ltd. had grown to include more than 40 facilities, each managing its own IT infrastructure. To reduce costs and increase efficiency, the organization sought to consolidate IT management. To operate efficiently in an environment that runs 24 hours a day, Fortis must ensure that all of these business-critical applications are highly available to its business users.

Transformation

Fortis engaged IBM Technology Support Services– Healthcare Support Services to provide a consolidated IT support solution that maintains the organization’s software, hardware and network. With the flexible solution, Fortis can meet the needs of a growing, geographically dispersed workforce.
