Brighton Housing Trust is currently involved in a complete refresh of its IT systems in moving from an aging WYSE Thin Client based system to a Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010 and Office 2010 based network.
Spread across 25 remote sites, they utilise Dell desktops and servers and make extensive use of virtualisation using Microsoft Hyper-V.
Finding Futures is a Personal Development and Motivational Programme designed for unemployed adults with multiple barriers to learning and employment.
The project required a secure training network, ensuring that computers were locked down to avoid constantly having to repair systems, as well as blocking inappropriate websites.
When BHT IT Solutions took over the IT for Hove YMCA it had a five site network with servers and desktop computers on each site.
The main focus of the first year was to migrate the system into a purely thin client system which would allow Hove YMCA to link 10 additional small locations into the system to allow all Hove YMCA staff to work on the same system.
