The WRL transition team selected Codify as the IT partner, based on both their pre-existing relationship and the experience Codify had with similar projects.
“We wanted to ensure that we employed someone that could deliver the outcomes we needed in the tight time frames,” said Mike Dixon, CFO of WRL (part of the transition team that stayed with WRL). “With these sorts of projects, you don’t have the opportunity to do it again. We had confidence that Codify could deliver the results.”
Codify completed two phases of works to support the sale of Curragh to Coronado. In Phase 1 they delivered a new cloud environment for WRL and helped to identify and migrate data to new Office 365 and Azure platforms. Phase 2 was the migration to a new Office 365 tenant for Curragh post sale. A critical success factor of both phases was that there be no outages.
“The implementation happened over a weekend,” said Rochelle Jones, Senior, Service Delivery at Curragh (part of the WRL transition team). “It was all hands on deck, trouble shooting and identifying any issues. This was done by our internal team and Codify and was a very smooth process.”
“One of the big risks was the potential loss of any Curragh data. Our own core team was busy with day-to-day operations. This all had to happen in addition to business-as-usual, so we needed a partner that could deliver this while minimising the reliance and impact on our day-to-day people.”
