Sharon Cooper, CDO at BMJ, commenting on the win says: "I am incredibly proud of my team's achievement in winning Data Centre Cloud Project of the Year with Datapipe. It is the third award we have won for this project which reflects the exceptional dedication and hard work that the team put into it. It was our close working relationship with Datapipe that not just allowed us to work the way we wanted to work, but also meant we could leverage all Datapipe's expertise to make this project the success it has been. We are now in a position where we can continue to ensure that our digital products make the best use of technology innovation to deliver benefits to our customers and users."
"Winning Data Centre Cloud Project of the Year is an honour for Datapipe," said Tony Connor, Datapipe EMEA Marketing Director. "BMJ found itself with an infrastructure that was no longer fit for purpose. As a trusted partner to BMJ, we delivered an automated solution and, most importantly, implemented the change with zero downtime for BMJ's customers. The success of this cloud transformation, along with the two other awards the project has already won, is testament to this commitment."
