The challenge.

It became clear to Holman Webb that engaging with their clients through a digital platform would be an important ingredient for their future success. They realised too that their long-standing server room based on ageing infrastructure built up in an ad-hoc fashion over many years was a drain on their time, resources and budget. They needed a genuinely innovative partner to help them with their digital transformation journey.

Macquarie Telecom.

To start the process, we introduced Steve Ferhad, Holman Webb’s CTO, to our Launch (IaaS) private cloud solution. It presented a clear path to migration and a bullet-proof hosting solution. Moving from their traditional server room to our private cloud was a seamless process, and the new platform offered 99.9% uptime of their key case management platforms and document storage systems. It also meant unmatched data security, offered by Macquarie Telecom’s ISO27001-certified IC2 data centre, providing real peace of mind for their customers.

The difference.

By partnering with Macquarie Telecom, Holman Webb were able to accelerate their digital transformation. Instead of spending an hour an hour every morning within in their in-house server room ensuring business-critical applications were online, the IT team now only needed to run a five minute morning check. Suddenly, a digital-first culture became the norm, and clients could see the benefits. When COVID lockdowns pushed their entire workforce towards remote working, Eduardo, their dedicated SDM at Macquarie, was able to enable a split-tunnel VPN within 15 minutes, providing the same level of security and access wherever staff were based.


"The fact that our data resides within an ISO27001 (the highest global standard for data security) certified data centre gives us a real competitive advantage, it allows our customers peace of mind that their sensitive data exists under the highest global standard for data security. The same can’t be said for some of our competitors."
