Summary: Douglas College spent many years updating and making the most of an aging IT infrastructure, while systems requirements continued to increase along with growth in faculty and student population. The College had outgrown their old system and demands for new systems kept increasing. The College’s systems had reached high watermark capacities and were unable to support the service levels required for their application workloads. The applications and technologies had considerably changed over the lifetime of the aging infrastructure, and feature and functionality requirements were no longer being met. The ultimate business drivers in securing an updated solution were increasing reliability issues with legacy hardware and risk of data center failure.
