"We normally find partners by going out to market, really testing that market and testing our contacts. We have an amazing procurement department here that really understands what they need to do," he said. Helping PageGroup get out of the Infrastructure Game Every minute that our IT might not be performing as expected, that is a phone call that our front office guys have missed. We take that personally Our IT partners have to talk non-IT before they talk IT. They have to understand us. That describes Claranet really well." PageGroup About company text. PageGroup is a FTSE 250-listed global recruiter employing over 6,500 people in 37 countries across 141 offices. The company has been in business for over 40 years, and is comprised of four core PageGroup brands made up of specialised recruitment teams operating across 25 disciplines from actuarial to technology. Because the firm has its own sizeable IT department, it is a voracious technology consumer, and is proud to describe itself as a cutting-edge technology company that specialises in recruitment. It also holds global security certification ISO 27001 to ensure its valued customer data is fully protected. The challenge Technology is the lifeblood of PageGroup, and it had already undertaken its own Azure cloud migration project internally – but costs had started to spiral, and the firm needed a trusted IT supplier that could help to slash those costs, maximise its Azure investments and enable the company to achieve its cloud goals. Claranet was suggested as one of three potential MSPs by Microsoft, and impressed PageGroup from day one with its in-depth Azure knowledge and its willingness to listen to its requirements. Claranet was taken on in an initial six-month trial engagement with its extensive Azure managed services offering, which quickly morphed into a longer-term relationship. David Mann, global director of infrastructure services at PageGroup, said the decision to enlist Claranet was straightforward. The solution Because PageGroup had executed its migration to Azure, Claranet worked to review and warrant the global Azure estate and set to work delivering a comprehensive set of 24/7/365 managed services, which included: • Pro-Active Iaas & PaaS Managed Services for many hundreds of production workloads • Monitoring & Alerting • Backup, Security, Patching and Compliance • FinOps, Costs Visibility and Azure Billing Management Alex McLoughlin, head of sales at the Claranet CloudBusiness Unit, said they recognised the problems instantly.
