A truly ‘supreme’ court

Almost every organisation has undergone some sort of digital transformation. But even traditional institutions, like the Supreme Court, are now packing a digital punch.

With support from Virgin Media Business, the Supreme Court is now fully connected to the cloud (taking just nine weeks) and on a clear path to the future – enhancing collaboration and lowering mobile and travel costs.

“Technology is a crucial part of every organisation, but today, for the Supreme Court, it’s a thread that runs through everything we do. It’s crucial.”

Chinonso Orekie, CTO, the Supreme Court

Putting PBX and paper on the stand

The Supreme Court was trapped in a basic, end-of-life PBX telephony – not to mention piles of paperwork. If the court was to achieve its vision of a more joined-up, flexible, better-connected organisation, it needed to break free from its brick-and-mortar shackles and welcome new technologies with open arms.

The verdict? Head to the cloud

PBX and paperwork were put away for good. Taking their place was a hosted Skype for Business cloud solution, supported by IPVPN connectivity. This meant the Supreme Court could make the most of its existing investment in Office 365 licenses.

Plus, with an easy-to-use video-conferencing solution, the Supreme Court could support the need to work remotely – even hearing cases through video links.
