PUBLIC SECTOR BUYERS' GUIDE - AUTUMN 20
Welcome to the latest edition of the Public Sector Buyers’ Guide.
I’ve been reflecting a lot recently on how 2020 will be remembered. When I think back to the end of 2019, 2020 held so much promise – the start of not just a new year, but a new decade.
It probably goes without saying that 2020 has proven to be challenging and looks likely to continue to be so.
The advent of Coronavirus has changed every aspect of our lives, from the way we work to how we live our lives. But times of uncertainty and changes in dynamics can create opportunities for innovation, particularly in technology. Take for example the 2002 SARS pandemic in Asia and the subsequent rise and widespread adoption of e-commerce in China, or even the 2009 financial crisis – technology facilitated the creation of the sharing economy.
More recently we have seen the benefits of technology and solutions coming to the fore – in connecting businesses globally through remote tech offerings, to providing business continuity and flexibility through cloud solutions.
In this quarter’s Public Sector Buyers’ Guide, we delve into how the technology supplied by our partners and the solutions we offer are helping to shape organisations during this period and the foreseeable future.
In the Public Sector, we look at how Alder Hey Children’s Hospital (pg 30) has been using Microsoft HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist to provide remote clinical care, and and we consider if remote working for councils and local government is here to stay (pg 6).
2020 may be remembered for the huge amount of disruption it has brought to our lives. However, this could be the decade that forces us to rethink our approach, affording us with the chance to adopt ground-breaking technology and solutions to build organisational resilience. I hope you’ll agree, that the stories and offerings we share in this guide, are a glimpse of the opportunities that lie ahead.

We can optimise your cloud services for security, spending and performance.
Digital solutions can help local councils and government authorities overcome both present and future challenges – not only for employees, but for service users too. For example, with the shortfall in budgets for social care, remote collaboration tools could be used to replace physical visits to service users, and IoT wearables and apps could be used to monitor clients’ well-being. Digital technology can empower government organisations to provide quality care while reducing the number of physical staff visits.
Insight’s Digital Innovation Team is also working on entirely new ways to monitor public health and wellbeing. One project is exploring the use thermal imaging to identify people that have a high temperature. This technology could be used in offices, or even in parks and other open spaces, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
As we continue to embrace the new normal, public sector organisations must make the best use of the digital tools that are available today and ensure that cloud implementation is optimised for security, spending and performance. But they must also continue to embrace future digital innovations in order to deliver the best service and make the best use of available resources.
Taking remote collaboration beyond the workplace
It seems likely that, for many public sector
workers, the new normal is here to stay.
Research shows that both employers and workers feel they benefit from remote working.
If employees continue to work remotely, councils have an opportunity to make up some budget shortfall by estate rationalisation. Those that are yet to adopt remote working tools such as Microsoft Office 365 and Teams should do so as soon as possible. Those that have already done so should prepare for the long haul, shifting databases, apps, and workloads into the cloud where appropriate and optimise platforms for security, performance and value for money. Remote collaboration tools can also be used to deliver services to the public – saving money and freeing up valuable human resources.
It is apparent that large-scale remote workforces are here to stay, so how should councils and local governments prepare for the future? Considerations must include maintaining productivity, preparing for disruption, optimising cloud services and ensuring data security.
A good starting point for public sector organisations is to assess which workloads are already running in the cloud and which would benefit from migration. With the majority of employees working remotely, it makes sense, from both a security and performance perspective, to host apps, platforms and databases in the cloud – but deciding which ones requires specialist knowledge.
Insight’s Migration Services are designed to help organisations make and implement these kind of decisions. For example, a Discovery Workshop can help you identify core challenges and objectives, and determine which workloads you should move to the cloud, while a Hybrid Cloud Assessment will help you strategically move those workloads to the cloud with minimum risk.
Other important considerations for cloud migration include security, performance and value for money. Remote working brings an increased security risk, and places a bigger strain on databases, apps and platforms – which can affect performance. And, if cloud usage is ungoverned, there is a risk of overspending. It’s therefore essential to ensure that councils and local government organisations follow best practice for cloud migration. Insight’s Azure Governance Service is designed to help organisations follow best practice, manage spend effectively and optimise cloud security and performance.
How councils can prepare for the future
Bristol City Council reduced its office estate by 85% and saved £125 million over five years.(9)
Another factor that is likely to lead to remote working becoming the new normal, is how successful it has been
for employers and staff alike. Just 13% of workers want to return to the office full time and the remaining 87% want
more flexibility to work remotely. 21% would rather never
go back to the office at all.(4)
These numbers are hardly surprising in some ways. For many people, working from home has brought an end to commuter misery, given them more time to spend with
the family, and saved them money on travel, coffee and lunches – just for starters. But the figures also indicate
that employees are comfortable adopting digital communication tools.
While remote working has separated us in some ways (no more watercooler conversations or daily stand-ups) it has brought us closer together in others. Microsoft Teams meetings, for example, give us glimpses into each other’s home lives – often thanks to unplanned interruptions from children or pets. And, as all meetings are now virtual, the distinction between meetings with our own colleagues, and members of other organisations, has disappeared. Remote working has widened our community.
The advantages of remote working aren’t restricted to non-managerial employees. Recent research shows that that a majority of European executives and managers have seen productivity, collaboration and work-life balance improve while their staff work remotely.(5)
Many employers are beginning to see greater benefits from collaboration tools they have already invested in. Microsoft Teams, for example, was previously underused by many organisations. It is now the only way of communication for many workers and is proving a huge success. Meetings are easier to schedule, as organisers can simply invite participants by email and no longer need to work around the availability of a room. Users have become more proficient at using the features – including screen-sharing and giving presentations – making meetings more efficient. And because anyone can join a Teams meeting, regardless of their location, councils can be more inclusive. Members of the public can now join council meetings, even if they are self-isolating or have mobility issues.
Just 13% of workers want to return to the office full time, and 21% would rather never return.(8)
The unexpected success of remote working
Councils and local government organisations are facing tough financial challenges right now. Between March and June, councils incurred £4.8-billion of extra cost pressures and income losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This figure is expected to rise to £10.9 billion and, as the government has pledged just £3.2 billion of emergency funding, councils face a funding gap of £7.4 billion(1). Local authorities in Scotland are among the worst hit, with four Scottish councils facing shortfalls of the equivalent of more than £300 per resident.(2)
At the same time, councils across the UK have been investing in mobile technology to enable employees to continue working efficiently from home – often including expensive hardware refreshes. It is natural for them to want to get the most from this investment going forward. One of the most effective ways for senior management to make cost savings is to encourage teams to continue to work remotely, and have fewer staff working in the office.
This would allow councils to make up some of the budget shortfall by estate rationalisation. Bristol City Council showed how effective this strategy can be when it reduced its property portfolio by 85% in 2017 – saving a total of £125 million(3) over a period of five years.
UK councils could be facing a funding gap of £7.4 billion.(6)
Councils in Scotland alone could be facing a £400 million shortfall.(7)
When the government first announced social distancing measures in March 2020, most public sector organisations already had Business Continuity Management (BCM) plans in place.
These plans enabled office-based employees to work from home without causing major disruption to the services public sector teams were providing. But BCM plans are usually designed to deal with short term disruption to our usual working practices. The ongoing situation has led to teams working and collaborating for months on end and, for many in the public sector, there is little prospect of returning to normality anytime soon.

Insight is working with a new partner, Kano, to put a new kind of digital device into the hands of students. Kano PC is a modular Windows 10 device built by the creators of Raspberry Pi, in partnership with Microsoft. Pupils can build their own modular laptop, helping them to learn how computers work and understand the role of components like processors and memory. It is affordable, repairable and upgradable – bringing benefits to schools, parents, pupils and the environment. Specifically designed for education, it also encourages pupils to use code to create
art, games and music – ideal for remote learning. While the partnership with kano is in its early stages, it clearly has the potential to be
combined with Insight’s 1:1 Education scheme – helping to provide
access to digital learning for all pupils and to prepare today’s
students for the jobs of tomorrow.
Insight is constantly seeking to create new
opportunities for clients, have a positive impact
on people’s lives, and encourage working
together more effectively through
technology – and nowhere is this
more appropriate than in the

Listed as one of Time Magazine’s best inventions of 2019, Kano PC is part of the Microsoft affordable devices range and is available from Insight.
Lockdown has taught us that schools should have effective planning in place to avoid disruption and need to adopt remote learning technology. Pupils also need to have equal access to connected devices, which can be facilitated through initiatives like Insight’s Education 1:1 scheme. Digital technology is on course to play a larger role in work and education in the future, and pupils should be engaging more with digital technology. Insight is working with the makers of Kano P, a modular Windows 10 device that is affordable and repairable, facilitates remote learning, helps children understand how computers work and encourages them to program their own music, art and games.
One of the biggest barriers educational establishments will face in providing equal access to remote learning, is ensuring that all pupils have devices to complete assignments on. For schools to provide education through Microsoft Office 365, Teams and other collaboration tools, pupils must have access to an appropriate connected device. Expecting schools to pay the upfront cost of devices for all pupils is unrealistic and presents a capital expenditure challenge – especially as public sector funds are already stretched.
Insight’s 1:1 for Education initiative aims to help schools overcome this issue. The program, which Insight already delivers to many schools, puts a device in the hands of each student, at no cost to the school. By allowing parents to pay a monthly fee, the scheme helps the school to deliver remote learning to as many students as possible and parents avoid the upfront cost of purchasing a device.
Repton School in Derbyshire used Insight’s 1:1 scheme initially to provide Microsoft Surface Pro 4 devices for each of its pupils, giving them access to one of the best hybrid devices on the market with no cost to the school. The school has subsequently worked with Insight every year since, updating their devices to the very latest on the market: Microsoft Surface Pro 7. Insight is currently in the process of rolling out 25 different 1:1 scheme for schools across the country using affordable HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer, and Microsoft devices.
Giving students access to digital tools for education has another benefit, too – it helps them to acquire skills they will need when entering the workplace.
Students could return in the fall having progressed only 70 percent of a grade in reading and less than 50 percent of a grade in math during the 2019–20 school year.
Devices – the key to providing equal access to education for all
Insight’s 1:1 for Education scheme enables parents to equip their children with the latest Windows 10 devices from as little as £10 a month – with no credit check required.
There’s no doubt that, while schools across the UK have worked hard to continue education during lockdown, remote learning will have inevitably had some negative impact on progress for many students. According to McKinsey, “Recent analysis projects that students (in the United States) could return in the fall having progressed only 70 percent of a grade in reading and less than
50 percent of a grade in math during the 2019–20 school year”.
Some schools, however, were more prepared than others. By implementing what was, in effect, a business continuity plan
for schools, Radnor House, a co-educational day school in Kent, was able to deliver a full syllabus during lockdown with virtually no disruption.
As part of its commitment to delivering the best education for its pupils, Radnor House uses digital technology to facilitate remote learning and collaboration for all its senior school pupils. Its enthusiastic adoption of digital collaboration tools allowed the school to move swiftly to a remote learning environment when the need arose.
Several weeks before schools were closed, teachers at Radnor House adapted lessons for the virtual environment and tested them in live classes. As a result, the school was able to iron out any issues with the technology and ensure all teachers and students knew how to access the information and tools they needed. During lockdown students attended group lessons, a weekly assembly and one-to-one sessions with teachers using Microsoft Teams. They also completed assignments using Office 365. The scheme has been widely praised by parents and the school has seen a spike in requests for new placements.
Insight assisted Radnor House with choosing and procuring Microsoft Surface Pro devices for its students, negotiated a favourable Office 365 licensing deal with Microsoft, and provided ongoing support for the school’s IT team. Credit also goes to the school for the way it pro-actively sought to engage with the latest digital technology. By equipping students with the right devices and software and rehearsing the delivery of remote lessons the classroom, it was fully prepared to embrace remote learning.
It is clear from this example that remote working solutions should play a key role in providing education for all schools going forward, enabling them to deliver a full curriculum to remote learners when the need arises. But for it to be successful, all students need to have access to the right tools – not only the software, but the hardware too.
Continuity management planning
In order to properly prepare for an uncertain future, we need to ask several questions. What should schools be doing to ensure that all pupils have equal access to education, regardless of their background or situation? Can digital and tech solutions be used to deliver a full curriculum to remote learners – and does this give us a glimpse into how lessons will be taught in the future? And as digital technology is on course to play a larger role in work and education, what skills should pupils should be learning today to prepare for the tech jobs of tomorrow?
In the run up to the new academic year, there has been much speculation as to what measures will need to be put into place to ensure the safety of staff and pupils as they return to classes. At the time of writing, the UK government says that class size restrictions will be lifted so that all pupils we be able to return the classroom, and the Scottish Government has confirmed that pupils will return to class full-time in August(1). Nevertheless, it’s certain that pupils will be required to self-isolate when outbreaks occur – with contact tracing and testing being used to minimise disruption.
An estimated 65% of children entering primary schools today will work in jobs and functions that don’t currently exist.
Preparing Schools for a Digital Future
According to a recent Universities UK report an estimated 65% of children entering primary schools today will work in jobs and functions that don’t currently exist. Many parents feel that there is not enough focus on teaching children about technology and that schools should be looking to do more to prepare students for a fast-changing digital future. Scotland’s tech industry, for example, is one of the fastest growing in the country, but there has been a 12% decline in pupils studying computer science at school. (2) It’s also likely that more traditional professions will continue to be transformed by digital technology. Some businesses have already noted that many young employees show a lack of knowledge of basic Microsoft tools.

Enhance Student Learning With a Modern Classroom
One of the best things about being a STEM Ambassador is how much we have learnt from the young people we have worked with. To help articulate the value of the STEM Ambassador programme for your educational setting, I’d love to tell you about my proudest moment as a STEM Ambassador. I was delivering a virtual reality workshop at a local primary school, which gave a year six female student the confidence and access to a voice she didn’t know she had. She was our volunteer to demo a VR headset, who we invited to stand with us in front of over forty of her peers and three teachers. When asked by us, she described the virtual world we had transported her too. Unbeknown to us before our session, that same girl had never spoken in front of her class, she didn’t talk to the teaching staff, she rarely communicated with other students and possibly most surprisingly of all, she didn’t speak to her family either. But for that one hour with us, she was fully engaged and talking freely to other students while trying various pieces of equipment. The other students and teachers were stunned by the transformation they were witnessing.
Her teacher said:
“It’s incredible, I genuinely thought she would leave school having never heard her voice, I can’t believe it!
I can only assume that because she couldn’t see her physical environment (ie the school hall) that she felt comfortable talking to us all. This truly reinforced to me the positive impact that STEM volunteering has on young people. It would be impossible to put a price on that. In all honesty, it was an emotional experience being told that we made a real difference. I went back to work that day knowing that technology can make a positive difference to people’s lives.
In summary, to resolve the STEM problem society needs to start positively influencing young people in Primary school so as they continue to grow they have the normalised view that anyone can work in tech. Because they can.
Insight’s STEM Ambassadors want to help your school/college, please keep us busy.
The real power of STEM
Insight puts people at the heart of anything we do, and we are committed to making a positive impact on our communities by giving back. We are passionate about the interests and causes that our teammates are passionate about, which is why we support our teammates with paid ‘volunteer days’ enabling them to give their time to initiatives and charities they care about. As a global technology company, Insight firmly believes that “technology inspires the spirit of togetherness” and through our corporate and social responsibility pledges, we have put “empowering Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics” front and centre. As a part of our culture, we encourage our teammates to be active STEM volunteers, sharing their knowledge, experience and skills with the next generation.
Here is one example of how Insight in Sheffield is supporting local Secondary school students through our work experience programme where over the course of a week, each young person will experience the variety of roles the technology industry can offer. On day one, students will have the opportunity to experience the build, integration & reimaging of IT hardware process at our Distribution Centre. Initially they will learn about our health and safety policies and understand how we process high value IT stock, how we build IT hardware ready for customer use and ensure our IT equipment arrives safely with the customer and in full working order. Day two is all about the IT sales process at our Technology building, learning how we sell our products and services to clients and how our Sales team understand our clients’ business “pain points”. There is a group exercise where the students try out their new selling techniques with our scenarios. Day three is when students learn about Project Management; including how we coordinate IT projects and the people needed to do the work, how we manage costs associated with projects, bill our clients and how to produce reports to assist the management of projects, followed by an interactive activity to manage a mini project. There is also time to meet a Technical Solutions Architect to find out what is it really like being a TA and what kind of projects and clients do Technical Architects get involved with. Day four is spent with our Engineering team to see how we assess, enable and support IT tools, run automation feasibility assessments and maintain IT testing, rollbacks, major updates as well as patching schedules. On the fifth and final day, students are invited to present what did they learnt, what their highlights were and their ideas on how we could improve our business to our senior leadership team.
How Insight Helps
The careers available to young people are changing, in most cases, many of the roles which will be accessible in 10 years do not exist today. With the growth of automation and continuation of digitalisation in all industries, it is also highly likely that the next generation will not perform the same role for their entire working life, instead they may have multiple and different jobs. Together, businesses, teachers, parents and guardians need to prepare young people to be resilient, adapt to change, solve problems, communicate effectively, be creative and enjoy life-long learning.
The benefits STEM Ambassadors could offer your school varies greatly, it doesn’t have to be technical classroom workshops such as building robots with students (although these can be loads of fun!), STEM Ambassadors can help young children by talking and even demonstrating what they do in their jobs. For older young people, STEM Ambassadors can support the development of important transferrable skills (whether they go into STEM career or not) such as careers talks, mentoring, speed networking, mock interviews and CV writing. STEM Ambassadors can even provide enriching work experience and office visits, for students to experience for themselves what it is really like to work in these jobs and industries.
How can schools and colleges benefit from STEM Ambassadors?
If you haven’t heard of “STEM Ambassadors”, it is a UK Government supported initiative to encourage volunteers from STEM professions to offer their time, energy and passion to bring STEM subjects to life and showcase the value of them in our lives. What’s more, STEM Ambassadors are a completely free of charge resources for teachers and students to benefit from. The benefits speak for themselves:
The STEM Ambassador Programme
“90% of young people who engage with STEM Ambassadors say that it increases their engagement with STEM, helping them to make informed decisions about their future careers.”(1)
In theory solving the STEM problem shouldn’t be difficult because young people use technology multiple times every day, it is part of their DNA. The connected world is the norm for them, they are online and socially active, they use augmented reality through Snapchat filters and they utilise the internet of things through everyday household products like virtual home assistants. They are naturally curious about tech.
Furthermore, we know that the UK Government has been placing more focus on developing STEM skills within education over the last several years. This is especially true where primary schools are encouraging students to use free online tools such as Scratch, Purple Mash and AppShed which are great introductions to learning how computer code works and to build confidence. Older children can then experiment with more advanced coding techniques in other free online tools including App Inventor and even games such as Code Wars, this is all very encouraging.
However, this doesn’t do anything to improve the perception of working in IT as being anything than mouse clicks or typing on a keyboard. It doesn’t do anything to undo those stereotyped views that are formed in young children about the types of people that work in the technology field. It also doesn’t inspire the next generation about the possibilities that technologies can have on our future everyday lives. It doesn’t show students that people working in the tech industry aren’t all computer programmers working in dark basements.
What young people need to know is working in IT is exciting, it involves solving problems in a creative way, where the possibilities are endless, but how can you explain that to a 5 year old?
Ask them how they could use a mobile phone to encourage other young people to stay/be healthy? You will be surprised by their answers, they will have inspired ideas and they see new possibilities for technology adoption which could be missed without giving them the time to think creatively about technology.
STEM in education
Pretty much overnight global businesses switched to remote working which could only have been made possible by the technology industry.
Demand for critical medical skills increased so much in the UK that retired doctors and nurses actively re-joined the National Health Service.
Some engineering and manufacturing companies stopped their normal operations to design and produce much needed ventilators and personal protection equipment for healthcare professionals.
When the healthcare providers wanted innovative ways to help prevent the spread of infection, they looked to the technology sector for help, making use of augmented reality to conduct virtual consultation and patient care.
So that was the STEM problem before Brexit and before COVID-19, but what have we learnt since?
It is clear to see that the vast majority of ‘key workers’ perform STEM roles.
The IT industry was silently working harder than ever in the background.
In recent years we have been told about ‘the STEM problem’ in the UK, but what really is the problem and is it possible to resolve? In its simplest terms, the scales are not balanced, 100 STEM professionals leave the industry every day but the demand for STEM roles is expected to double over next 10 years, meaning the pipeline of young talent is too low to meet the current demand. Ultimately the UK economy heavily relies on our engineering and technology skills, products and services, along with science and maths. To put that into numerical context, 89% of STEM businesses are struggling to recruit (costing UK businesses £1.5b). Why should we care? Because the growth of the UK economy depends on the next generation wanting to develop STEM skills and shape the future.
However, that isn’t the only STEM problem that exists.
The lack of diversity within the STEM professions is also a fundamental issue. If we look at gender diversity alone, less than 25% of STEM professions in the UK are female. In fact the UK has the worst gender diversity in STEM roles compared with every other European country. The unfortunate reality is that children as young as 5 years old form stereotyped views of professions and the people behind them. There is a really compelling video, you may have seen where young school children have been asked to draw a firefighter, a surgeon, and a fighter-pilot. 92% of the imaginary STEM workers created by the children were drawn

When thinking about introducing new technology features into your school you need to first think about the people in your school and how they can best utilise the functionality of that technology. Insight can coach school staff through
virtual workshops exploring attitudes of inclusivity
and live demos of the accessibility features across
Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 Education. In addition
to this, Insight can support your school with a training
initiative to make PowerPoint presentations more
accessible with interactive experiences of Accessibility
Checker and how to make Assemblies more inclusive, using subtitles/captions. Insight can also provide guidance on
making your school’s website more accessible to the
public by showcasing the accessibility features available
within the Microsoft Edge web browser.
In addition, Insight can support your school by procuring accessible hardware and providing your school with the
“Digital Education Platform” and coaching on how to use the platform for effective virtual learning, which also includes accessibility features in Microsoft Teams.
How Insight can help
Accessible technology can empower learning outcomes for everyone.
The encouraging news is companies are incorporating accessibility more, especially software companies. If we
take Microsoft as an example, their mission is “ to
empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more” and they are doing this by making their products as user friendly for everyone as possible, as well as improving productivity and being competitively priced. Specifically, Microsoft’s 365 products can help support inclusion and it is highly likely that your school already uses Microsoft 365 Education for a variety of purposes. It is also very likely that your school isn’t aware of the Microsoft 365 accessibility features and therefore isn’t benefiting from the valuable inclusive tools built into those familiar products. All these features are available at no additional costs because they are included in the licence that your school is already paying. Another exceptional advantage from using these accessibility tools within school is that the same features are available in Microsoft 365 Home and Microsoft 365 Business, so the learning products are consistent in school as well as at home and will benefit all when working in the future.
Here is an introductory overview of how Microsoft 365 can support your school’s inclusive learning:
Immersive Reader is a wonderful tool for people with learning disabilities, helping them to read more effectively with features such as reading text out loud, breaking words into syllables, and identifying speech.
Using focus assist can be particularly productive for people with behavioural disorders, providing the ability to block alerts and notifications, allowing people to get things done without distractions.
For people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, or who might have different levels of language proficiency using live captions/autogenerated subtitles can help. PowerPoint and Microsoft Teams offers the ability to record your voice and covert into written words on the screen in real-time, giving another way to follow along.
Vision can be assisted through changing colour filters, boosting contrast or removing colour all together.
Keyboard shortcuts limit the need to use a mouse and the dictate feature can convert your speech in text, supporting people with mobility issues to write documents in a different way.
(This is by no means an exhaustive list, rather a brief introduction to some of the features and how they could benefit people within your school. There are plenty of additional capabilities which would benefit everyone, not just people with additional needs.)
Microsoft 365 brings all students and staff onto a singular platform which can be adapted to support different needs and therefore feels inclusive as well as allowing teaching staff to reduce the need to adapt their teaching to fit different software. Therefore, a supplementary but potentially significant benefit of adopting the accessibility features within Microsoft 365, could be a cost saving if your school chose to consolidate the software which performs similar functions.
How could technology help to create a more inclusive learning environment for the whole school?
Many schools and colleges have purchased additional software for students with special education needs. However, this specialised SEN software tends to be high cost and it doesn’t integrate well with other software used by the school, resulting in disjointed learning environments. Using more niche software like this also means that individual students will have a disparity and inconsistent learning experience between school and home because they are not likely to have access to the same applications. Another fundamental disadvantage to using such software is ‘singling out’ SEN students as being ‘different’ from their peers because they are using different software therefore experiencing a different learning journey. For the student with additional needs this could lead to a feeling of being left out, excluded and being picked on and maybe even bullied.
To explore this further, we should consider the human brain in more detail. Our brains are programmed to spot similarities and differences in everything we encounter, including people. Ultimately, we can’t help this because biases exist as part of human nature which we cannot control. When we identify a difference, our unconscious bias within our brain is triggered spontaneously, we cannot help this but we need to try and be aware that this also leads to triggering an emotional response within us and could mean our behaviour is changed around that person. Young people will naturally be less aware of this and within a classroom or playground setting, it would be easy for that student to feel left out, which would not only damage their emotional wellbeing, but their performance as highlighted by the NeuroLeadership Institute which suggests that “it also jeopardises the performance of the entire”(1) class.
All of this could add up to limiting positive lifelong learning outcomes, however smarter, more inclusive and fairer technology could improve the learning environment for all students. This becomes more important with the knowledge that attending Primary school could be the first opportunity where a parent becomes aware that their child might have a learning disability. Having accessible technology available to all students would be supportive here, but it isn’t just Primary schools that need to consider accessible tech, accessible tech needs to be widely available. Secondary schools, colleges, universities and even workplaces need to take the consideration of accessible technology being available for all and there is huge importance in that. This is because “the age of learning disability diagnosis differs drastically, with some people being diagnosed in childhood and others not until late adulthood.”(2)
The reality is more than two in ten UK adults have a disability(3) and 96% of those disabilities are invisible(4). This means that children, teenagers and adults may not even be aware that they have additional needs. Another reality is there is a significant number of neurodiverse adults currently missed out of the working population due to a perception that companies are unable to support them. This is relevant here because it means that education providers might not be able if their staff have disabilities as well as their students. Therefore, education providers need to ensure their culture, processes, equipment and information are inclusive and accessible for everyone. The more aware students and teachers are of the accessibility benefits within mainstream technology the more likely the next generation will be able to articulate how workplaces could support people who have disabilities (especially those who are neurodiverse) in the future (given that we know so many employees choose to hide having additional needs from their employer due to a form of fear). Hopefully this could lead to shaping our future society to be more inclusive.
Is your school’s technology limiting learning outcomes
for students with special educational needs?

Smarter learning needs smarter technology
In many ways, the questions schools will face over the next few months are matters of change management. Giving students and teachers productive, connected tools is a foundational need, but additional training can help them make the most of the hardware at their disposal - and can help you realize the full value of your IT investment. This is particularly true for your faculty and staff.
And, though many of these changes will be productive, they still bring growing pains, especially given the added pressure to adapt quickly. Guidance from educational technology experts smooths the transition and helps teachers develop strategies for meeting immediate requirements in a way that fosters long-term innovation.
It’s impossible to fully replicate the traditional classroom in a digital or even a hybrid space. Instead, educators must figure out the best way to use the tools at their disposal to reach the learning objectives and community goals they have set out for their students. Technology training simplifies that process by minimizing the stress of adopting new hardware and applications so that your teams can focus on their primary passion and area of expertise: serving students.
Faculty and staff training
As you move from addressing short-term challenges to preparing for what might come next, you will search for ways to not only deliver lessons effectively, but also to re-establish what makes your school community unique. This is particularly true for higher education institutions where the on-campus experience and extracurricular activities are a major draw for prospective students. Leveraging cutting-edge technologies such as augmented reality can offer an unexpected learning experience that keeps your institution ahead of the curve.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach for handling this turning point, but every school will have to expand its technology platform and reconceptualize the classroom experience in some capacity. You may not be able to return to business as usual this fall, but with the right equipment and training - and an innovative mindset — you can establish new ways of serving students and creating a school community.
The biggest digital learning requirement is still personal learning devices - but keeping those devices connected is just as urgent.
What makes your student experience unique, and how can you use technology to continue to provide it?
One thing that hasn’t changed is that the number-one priority in fostering digital learning is getting devices in the hands of students. With the right tools, students can easily access learning modules and complete their assignments while at home.
Many leading brands offer laptop, 2-in-1 and tablet models that have been carefully optimized for education environments. Their mobility allows students to move seamlessly between home and the classroom, and their durable hardware is better equipped to resist wear and tear. For younger grades and students with limited access to technology, intuitive interfaces can accelerate the journey to digital learning.
While personal learning devices are an urgent need, internet access is equally important to ensure students can explore course materials, participate in audio and video lessons, and communicate one-on-one with instructors and peers.
If your students and faculty already have access to Wi-Fi at home, it’s important to invest in security tools that keep cyberthreats at bay. Schools are not immune to security breaches, and solutions such as access control measures, firewalls and robust authentication will help you minimize risk.
For schools located in areas impacted by broadband disparities, the connectivity equation is more complicated. However, solving it makes a massive difference not only for students, but also for their families and your larger community. Districts across the U.S. have displayed incredible creativity in keeping their students connected this spring. They’ve equipped common public objects such as stop signs with access point technology, and have even transformed unused school buses into large, moveable hotspots for neighborhoods with limited internet service.

Attackers are maximising every opportunity to gain new footholds in infrastructure, from impersonating contact tracing communications, exploiting the lack of security across the army of new and often lightly protected endpoints to launching a fresh wave of CV-19 phishing campaigns resulting in the reappearance of Zloader. Unfortunately, these attacks are all currently being driven aggressively towards the education sector.
Due to the costs associated with mitigating security threats, it can be difficult for an educational budget to address the threat of ransomware attacks as they become more prevalent. Verizon estimates 80% of malware attacks in the education sector over the past 130 days are ransomware focused.
The significant challenge in the education sector is that ransomware will then traverse the network and attempt to gain admin rights,taking advantage of potentially less disciplined user privilege controls with lateral movement taking advantage of both PSEXEC and RDP.
Some antivirus solutions fail to detect the presence of modern ransomware toolkits, but they can also be de-activated during the infection. In some cases, the utilisation of PowerShell to carry out execution for example might meet the signatures of allow-listed script usage.
This can seem an impossible challenge on a limited budget so how are Insight helping? We work with our most trusted partners to offer industry best practice advice and solutions built and priced for the education sector to meet their rapidly evolving security challenges and:
- Keep systems and software updated and patch known
vulnerabilities, automating wherever possible
- Disable SMBv1, upgrade to SMBv3
- Remove RDP on public IP’s and place these behind a VPN
- Identify opportunities for investment (with education sector pricing) in heuristic behaviour-based AV
- Implement architectural controls to segment networks where possible
- Keep isolated backups
- Scan all email attachments – disable macros on externally received documents and trace for malware
- Introduce more modern behaviour-based EDR solutions to detect ransomware and even zero-day threats based on all tactics and techniques rather than only known signatures
- During an incident offering best practice sector guidance such as Janet Network CSIRT for incident response including digital forensics
- Limit PowerShell execution and capture PowerShell logs
Security information library platforms such as Cyware are increasing their focus on the education sector during these unprecedented times because of the new attack surfaces, which the move to a remote learning profile has created.

Explore purpose-built connectivity solutions for healthcare.
Which brings up the questions: How are healthcare organisations going to deliver the same level of care, especially during surges, in a remote but connected way? How can doctors and hospitals address the pain points of different communities given any short-term limitations of either resources or expertise?
We have to adapt quickly. Afterall, we can expect telemedicine to stick around long after this outbreak and continue to be a valuable resource for collecting medical data remotely, safely and conveniently. But we cannot expect facilities to rip and replace their entire systems to meet these needs.
Rather, we hope healthcare organisations can add intelligent technology on top of the existing setup to bring greater value to their offerings. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, edge devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) will all play a significant role not only in expanding healthcare, but also in helping care facilities evolve beyond decades-old infrastructure.
This motion will also require organisations to revisit existing security protocols. As patients rely on virtual appointments to meet with providers, confidential information will need to be protected in transit and in
the data centre or cloud.
Smart systems can increase data consumption and protection, forecast care models and reduce length of stay for those who require in-person care.
People are still expected to contact 999 or 111 for emergency and urgent issues, but for less urgent cases there is the potential to use remote GP services both for new issues, as well as for routine monitoring/advice or repeat prescriptions.
IoT-enabled, smart IT is a game-changer for telehealth. It provides real-time support, helps providers treat chronic diseases anytime, anywhere and enables hospitals to better predict influxes according to seasonality or situational occurrences. As the healthcare space continues to evolve, we can expect these solutions to evolve along with it. The goal always being to provide safer, more effective care.
According to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, organisations looking to uphold an effective telehealth service will require:
Sufficient bandwidth provided by an affordable, reliable broadband service to prevent dropped connections
Imaging technology or peripherals to enable at-home health treatments even if the patient is miles away
Secure infrastructure to store, manage and protect confidential patient data on premises or in the cloud
Proper training for staff to adapt care services in order to provide high-quality care through a different medium
The practice of telemedicine has been around since the late 1950s when doctors began using photos and videos to transmit data in an academic setting. Since its debut, we’ve seen telemedicine delivered to address a broad range of needs: to manage ongoing conditions like diabetes, to address everyday care issues like rashes or to determine the level of care required for urgent symptoms such as a sinus infection. While the concept itself isn’t new, the level of application required has dramatically surged in the past few months.
Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, cost, availability and uncertainty over the personability virtual appointments could provide slowed the adoption of telehealth. But in response to the highly contagious virus, the government and healthcare systems around the country had to quickly ramp up virtual health care to comply with stay-at-home orders, prevent the risk of overrunning healthcare facilities, and protect both patients and providers.
Now, low-risk patients have the option to avoid exposure by seeking aid from the comfort of their homes. Hospitals with overwhelmed Intensive Care Units (ICUs) also benefit as teleconferencing enables knowledge sharing between ICU-specialists and other providers currently being assigned to areas they may not be familiar with in order to fill the
Matt Hancock has acknowledged that there is a particular problem of GP access in rural areas for and has committed to focus on that by “getting GPs into the right places and making sure we are making the best use of technology."
Telehealth continues to be a way to connect patients to vital care services from counseling support, symptom diagnosis, monitoring and maintenance, and more. On top of all of this, we’re seeing challenges where there’s a growing disparity in the ratio of doctors to patients.

A Future-Proof IT Architecture
The speed of change is accelerating, and as you modernise your infrastructure, you need to choose a solution that not only meets your immediate needs, but is flexible and scalable to meet tomorrow’s imperatives.
NetApp storage is unique in its ability to help you adapt dynamically to changing business demands. It frees you from the stress of data migration, so you can take on new projects while protecting your existing investments.
The Smart Choice for IT Transformation
More than ever, the success of your business depends on your digital presence. NetApp provides a flexible, proven data infrastructure that enables you to drive innovation and deliver a superior experience to customers - every time. You can dramatically accelerate app performance, while continuing to support both existing and emerging applications with NetApp’s unified data management platform.
NetApp solutions are built for change, enabling you to scale dynamically and move applications freely to where they run best - on-premises or in the cloud. So you can be confident that your business will have the agility and innovation you need to keep up in a dynamic digital world.
Adapt to Changing Business Demands
It’s clear that a traditional approach to IT, with outdated storage technologies and disparate, siloed systems built around individual applications, can’t keep up with today’s challenges.
If you can’t deliver the infrastructure and resources your business and developer stakeholders need to be successful, they may go around you and acquire their own cloud-based solutions. These “shadow IT” groups might solve some short-term issues, but they create new risks to security, data integrity, and compliance requirements.
Modernising your data center through a hybrid cloud approach is a better way. It combines on-premises private cloud infrastructure with cloud services as needed. Offer your users a menu of choices, which could include both on-premises and cloud services, and monitor usage. You can decide which applications will work best in the cloud, and which ones you run on premises. You keep control of your most critical, sensitive apps and data, while unlocking the agility of cloud.
Transition with Ease
A major data center transformation can be intimidating. After all, you’re dealing with your company’s most important business assets, and a misstep can disrupt your business operations or even damage your company’s reputation.
NetApp can help you address your migration concerns with proven upgrade approaches, so you can move forward with confidence. For example, make it easy to seamlessly migrate data from your existing SAN. As data is migrated, you can roll out application-integrated data protection services that increase the level of protection provided for critical data.
When your data is stored on NetApp, the NetApp Data Fabric provides uniformity across your data center and cloud resources, including consistent data formats, fast and efficient data transport, and consistent management.
Protect Your Investment
Data modernisation isn’t a product, but an ongoing journey. Even after your new solution is deployed and working well, you still need to consider the best way to protect your investment. You’ll need a market-leading vendor with proven success who will be with you as you continue to move forward.
- NetApp is a leading vendor in enterprise storage solutions, and an innovator in flash technologies.
- Named a Leader in the Gartner Solid State Array

The ROI of Simplification
Complexity is a barrier to data center success. Over time, companies have accumulated a mix of complex and aging systems that require equipment refreshes and other ongoing CapEx investments. They may be stuck with complicated manual tools and processes that increase OpEx, introduce the potential for errors and other risks, and slow business agility. All-flash storage simplifies your IT infrastructure and operations, enabling you to modernize the data center while reducing your total cost of ownership (TCO).
How much can an outdated infrastructure impact your bottom line? The various data center systems that you’ve acquired over the years can consume vast amounts of space, power, cooling, and other resources, while limiting your flexibility. Managing and maintaining all those different devices can cause your expenses to soar.
Simplifying your infrastructure lets you improve density and unlock immediate savings. You can replace older equipment with the latest devices, freeing up space and decreasing power and cooling budgets by up to 10 times.
By eliminating specialised infrastructure to support different applications and services and standardising your hardware selections, you can also create a simpler, more flexible data center that can adapt to new requirements and support
Managing a complex data center can consume valuable time, as your IT teams struggle to set up, configure, manage, and monitor storage and other elements. Simplifying operations by consolidating important data sets helps you reduce your data footprint, and free up your IT staff from worrying about compatibility problems, managing data protection tasks, and troubleshooting performance problems, so they can focus on higher value projects. With NetApp all-flash storage, you go from setup to serving data in just 10 minutes with a configuration optimised for your application profile.
Integrated data protection also helps simplify backup and disaster recovery, increasing your level of protection and decreasing the risk of data loss.
Unlock Substantial Savings
What happens when you simplify with all-flash storage modernization and consolidation? A recent Gartner study found that all-flash storage pays for itself in just five to six months on average by reducing OpEx for administration, power, space, cooling, and maintenance.(1) You’ll also realise dramatic improvements in your business performance, agility, and flexibility. These savings are important in an era when most IT budgets and staffing remain flat.
All-flash storage pays for itself in five to six months on average.(1)
“Standardising on NetApp has saved us time and money. It’s a very efficient storage platform.”

Performance to Accelerate Every Application - Without Disruptions
Migrating to a flash storage solution does much more than simply save you money. It improves the performance and availability of the applications you need to compete in a digital economy. You can accelerate your most important apps by up to 20 times compared to traditional storage - while minimising downtime. The result is big benefits for your customers, your IT, and your entire business.
Better for Customers
Customer experience is key to staying competitive. More than ever, your customer relationships are based on digital interactions - especially mobile ones. Unexpected downtime, or even a few seconds of delayed transactions, can cost you customers and repeat business.
Whether you’re supporting customer-facing applications, internal applications, or both, optimising the performance and availability of your storage, servers, networks, and virtual environments will help ensure that you get the most out of every app. It’s better for your customers, improving the client experience and reducing customer churn with fast, continuous access to data.
Better for IT
Traditional storage solutions can be time-consuming to manage and optimise. When your IT team is spending time with performance tuning, load balancing, storage migration, and troubleshooting, they can’t focus on strategic issues and business growth.
NetApp flash storage can help IT meet SLAs and performance demands from different internal stakeholders with dependable performance and fast provisioning templates that let you roll out new solutions in less than 10 minutes. You can perform maintenance and upgrades while your storage systems stay online, minimising disruptive downtime. It’s better for IT, enabling them to increase relevance and play a more strategic role, while freeing up resources and empowering them with better productivity.
Better for Your Entire Business
When your IT team is freed from chasing down outages and performance problems, it can focus on innovation and deliver a better customer experience. And happy customers often become repeat customers that fuel business growth. Because a flash-powered IT infrastructure can support performance levels that were previously unachievable, you can also deploy new applications and help the business take advantage of new opportunities.

The Results Highlights
Clinicians can now consult with each other remotely while continuing to operate, saving valuable time and ultimately
The number of staff needing to be in contact with patients and each other has been reduced – lessening the risk of cross infection.
Fewer specialists are needed on ward rounds now, making them more efficient, and giving a better experience for patients and their relatives.
Surgical operations can be recorded for educational use, with a clear view of the patient and procedure, enhancing the learning experience for junior medical professionals.
HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist reduces the number of staff needed in the operating theatre, lowering the risk of infection, preventing disruption. It can also reduce the number of people present during ward rounds and make the process more efficient for both patients and staff.
The solution allows clinicians to consult colleagues without waiting for them to be available in person – vital for time-critical operations. It will even make it possible for medical professionals to turn to experts from other hospitals within the UK and around the world.
HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist permits medical experts to communicate completely hands free, enabling them to consult colleagues while continuing to perform delicate and time sensitive operations.
Phuoc Duong, Paediatric Cardiology Consultant
“Being able to remotely respond at 2 a.m. leads to reduced response times, greater efficiency,
and the ability to make rapid decisions not just based on what’s heard, but what’s seen also.”
The Insight team worked directly with Rafael Guerrero, Clinical Director of Innovation and Chief of Congenital Cardiac Surgery at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, to implement a mixed reality solution combining HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist. The proof of concept involved Mr. Guerrero and Paediatric Cardiology Consultant, Dr Phuoc Duong. Insight advised
Mr. Guerrero and Dr Duong on the features and functionality
of the HoloLens 2 device, combined with the remote assist software. They worked with Alder Hey’s IT team to guide them through device and application considerations, the licensing process, setting up user accounts and assigning roles, and connecting securely to Alder Hey’s network. The Insight team effectively provided ‘hand-holding’ for Alder Hey, through the out of box experience and onto their first remote assist calls with HoloLens 2.
Further sessions followed to ensure evaluation was running smoothly and to answer the questions that naturally arose as the Alder Hey team continued exploring the technology.
By enabling clinicians to communicate hands-free and share information in real time, the HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist solution has huge potential for transforming medical processes. A simple but very effective use case is for ward rounds. Clinical assessment in the cardiac ward requires the presence of several specialists, so there are usually several people on the round. Wearing a HoloLens 2 device running the remote assist software, means just one clinician can perform the round. Other specialists can join in using Microsoft Teams, seeing exactly what the clinician sees, whilst also having 2-way audio/video communication and being able to share other visual content.
While one specialist is making the round, other tasks – such as updating patient records – can be redistributed among the team, saving time.
HoloLens 2 with Dynamics 365 Remote Assist has great potential to reduce the number of clinicians needed in the operating theatre too. For example, prior to HoloLens 2, if Mr. Guerrero wanted to consult fellow clinicians during a procedure, they would need to put on gowns and PPE, enter the operating theatre, review the imaging and have the discussion face to face. The HoloLens 2 headset, which can be worn with PPE equipment (including a visor), allows Mr. Guerrero to share high quality images with colleagues and communicate with them while continuing to operate on the patient.
Mr. Guerrero reported that when wearing the HoloLens 2 himself, he is able to share images and make calls, completely hands-free. As well as potentially reducing the number of clinicians in the room – especially important with COVID-positive patients – this could reduce pressure on PPE stock.
HoloLens 2 can enable medical experts to provide advice remotely by sharing images. On one occasion, Dr Duong was able to guide a colleague working in the Cath Lab by sharing images using HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist. In this situation, a surgeon needed to place a tiny stent inside a blood vessel of a small child, while a colleague used x-ray imagery to ensure it was in the correct position before he expanded it. Describing the procedure, Dr Duong said, “I was able to drive the model from my laptop and say, ‘actually from this angle, from this view is where you can best see the structure’, so that my colleague could tell the radiographer where to place the camera.” In this way Dr Duong took pressure off his colleague, who needed to use both hands for what he was doing. As it can often take quite some time just to get the x-ray camera in position, working with the HoloLens 2 solution helps gain back valuable life-saving moments.
HoloLens 2 has the potential to help with education and training by enabling a clinician to film a medical procedure. For example, if a surgeon was performing an unusual operation, they might want to share this with colleagues. The fixed camera in the operating theatre doesn’t provide a perfect solution – as the surgeon often physically blocks the camera’s view of the operation. The HoloLens 2 provides a way to record and share delicate operations,
without having more people in the operating theatre than absolutely necessary.
The use cases so far show how transformative the communication and image sharing capabilities of HoloLens 2 and Dynamics 365 Remote Assist can be for modern medicine, but there’s little doubt that that it offers even more exciting possibilities for the future. It could be used for collaboration between medical professionals working in different hospitals, and even in different countries. It opens up new possibilities for education, both for clinicians and for patients – helping the latter to understand complex surgical procedures and the way medicines work.
There is also the possibility of using its full 3D image projection capabilities to give an enhanced view of the patient. According to Mr. Guerrero, “HoloLens 2 and mixed reality may, in the future, enable me to have a patient’s scans in front of me while I’m doing the operation. If I can use technology to obtain that information, to see those images in front of me, that helps me tremendously and improves the outcome for my patient.”
Alder Hey Children’s Hospital wanted to use immersive and mixed reality technology to reduce the amount of physical contact between hospital staff, patients and visitors. Looking for a solution that would deliver immediate benefits, the hospital would also have the potential to support future developments in medical treatment. The initial use cases it had in mind included remote patient care, virtual ward rounds and staff training.
In the first instance, clinicians in the operating theatre wanted the ability to consult medical experts who were located elsewhere.
This would reduce the number of people in the theatre and lower the risk of spreading infections – including COVID-19 and MRSA. It would also allow the clinician to consult other experts more quickly – which could lead to a better outcome for the patient.
The team at Alder Hey also wanted to conduct virtual ward rounds, with just one clinician making the rounds and others joining remotely. This would make ward rounds more efficient
and reduce the number of people physically present at the bedside. As well as keeping contact to a minimum, this would provide a more personalised experience for the patient and their relatives. It could also reduce the strain on PPE equipment, as well as the associated cost, with fewer clinicians at the bedside. Another issue that Alder Hey wanted to address was staff training.
The hospital needed a way to enable medical trainees to observe a procedure without having to be in the room. Given the limited space in a room, this also increased the number of people that could observe live, plus improved the ability to record procedures for on-demand viewing afterwards.
Alder Hey therefore needed a way to communicate and share images as well as real life scenarios with other practitioners through video and audio in real time 24/7, regardless of the participants’ location.
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust wanted to enable clinicians to collaborate and communicate remotely in real time. It was looking for a way to minimise contact in the operating theatre and allow practitioners to consult fellow medical experts during surgery, regardless of their location.
Insight worked with top surgeons and cardiologists at the hospital to implement Microsoft HoloLens 2 and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Remote Assist, a mixed reality solution that enables hands-free communication as well as sharing of images and live video.
Rafael Guerrero, Director, Heart Unit,
Clinical Director of Innovation and Chief of Congenital Cardiac Surgery
“I was in the operating theatre performing a complex repair on a little heart, no bigger than the size of a strawberry. By using the Hololens, we were able to transmit live the view of the heart to other colleagues, as well as reviewing the echocardiogram at the same time.”
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust cares for over 330,000 children, young people and their families every year. One of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals, it also provides cardiac care and treatment for up to 8 million patients in the North West region of the UK.

A network and backup platform which can adapt to the future needs of the Trust.
An enterprise cloud platform, which simplifies the Trust’s IT environment and supports agile working.
Secure data storage with backup capability to keep vital patient data safe.
An infrastructure that’s easier to manage, freeing up IT staff to focus on strategic business goals.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust can now scale up its infrastructure and adopt new applications and technologies with no limits.
With a software-defined solution that integrates all IT resources to run any application, it is much easier to manage the infrastructure.
Having an enterprise cloud platform, the Trust can be more agile in the way it works, adapting its technology estate to its evolving needs.
The Trust is now able to comply with the ‘321 backup strategy’ rule, which states that organisations should have three copies of their data on two different media (disk and tape) with one copy offsite for disaster recovery.
The new backup solution also protects the Trust against the risk of ransomware and insider threats with enhanced S3 object storage integration and immutable backups.
Without needing to manage an external storage area network (SAN), the Trust is reducing its use of power, cooling and space.
The simplicity of the new infrastructure frees up IT resources to focus on vital initiatives and transformation for the future
of the Trust.
Insight carried out a technical workshop with Wallsall Healthcare NHS Trust to determine the most effective solution for the network infrastructure.
Having completed its review, Insight suggested replacing the Trust’s aging traditional three-tier infrastructure with an enterprise cloud environment.
The new infrastructure consisted of the Nutanix hyperconverged VMware vSphere solution, which would run the Trust’s business workload.
The new hyperconverged platform is much less complex than the Trust’s previous infrastructure, because it integrates the server, storage, virtualisation and networking.
And to address the Trust’s need to manage future demand, the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform provides the ability to run any application at any scale.
To protect the Trust’s data, Insight recommended Veeam Backup and Replication, which is designed for virtual environments. The software enables users to back up, restore and replicate functionality on virtual machines.
The Trust can run full or incremental backups and receive automated verification once the data has been recovered.
For maximum reliability, Insight proposed that the solution should be spread across four different locations: two locations to protect the Trust’s workload using Nutanix Metro cluster, and another two locations to protect the backup data.
Once the infrastructure was designed, Insight tested the failover and failback of the workload. This ensured that the Trust’s data could be fully protected and returned following a disaster or a period of scheduled maintenance.
The existing data centre for Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust was located at Manor Hospital and was coming to the end of its
As servers age, their reliability and performance decreases, and the ability of the Trust’s servers to support new applications was beginning to decline.
With traditional data centre infrastructure, such as the one used by the Trust, there are separate silos to manage for compute, storage and virtualisation, making the network run too slowly.
As a result, the NHS Trust was not able to implement new technology in the knowledge that it would run effectively on its
In addition, the Trust’s backup solution was not up to the job of supporting its business requirements. Equally, without adequate backup, the Trust risked falling short of compliance with data management regulations.
Scoping out a new solution called for forward planning. The production and hardware platforms would have to support the Trust’s business needs, as well as being able to handle future demand over the next five years.
The entire platform, including the primary and secondary site,
network, backup software and hardware would need to be procured for a fixed budget.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust had an aging data centre which was putting vital data at risk and holding the Trust back from being able to adopt innovative technologies.
Insight replaced the Trust’s legacy hardware and consolidated its infrastructure to make it fit for the future.
The Trust now also benefits from a backup solution that archives data securely to the cloud.
Ranj Dhanjal, IT Infrastructure SME,
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
“Insight has given us peace of mind with a secure, stable and scalable network that will take the Trust into the future.
The low-level design for the new infrastructure was excellent, and the level of detail was superb. We are very impressed by the solution deployment and the ease of use.”
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust provides local general hospital and community services to around 270,000 people in Walsall and the surrounding areas.
As the only provider of NHS acute care in the area, the Trust’s 5,500 staff deliver vital healthcare services to inpatients and outpatients at the Manor Hospital and the local community.
To be able to securely manage and store vital information about patients, treatments and equipment, Walsall needed a stable and reliable network solution.
