Meet the people we’ve already helped
At Camwood, we’ve already worked with a number of companies to help them with all stages of app management.
Babcock International is just one example. With over 27,000 staff around the world, Babcock had built up an unknown number of applications in its estate. Camwood helped them to understand which apps were up-to-date, which were necessary and correctly licensed, and which were expendable. But don’t just take our word for it, play the video to hear what Babcock has to say about us.
Camwood has helped some of the world’s largest enterprises rise to the challenges of application change, including:
Application Portfolio Management Testimonials
Bhadresh Sachania, head of PMO, Tube Lines: “Camwood ALM is an immensely powerful tool that provides immediate and accurate visibility on the status of all our applications, enabling us to understand how they are being used and by whom. It also highlights the application interdependencies that exist, enabling us to plan our migrations effectively.”
Michael John, Customer Solutions Architect, DVLA: “When the DVLA decided to introduce application virtualisation into the IT estate, Camwood provided us with specialist application compatibility services and comprehensive training for our team. An invaluable aspect was the added security we felt, knowing that if we came across any complex scenarios we had Camwood as a trusted point of escalation and expertise to back us up.”
Nick Walker, IT Shared Services Program Director, BAE Systems: “We recognised in Camwood a vendor with real focus on applications migration. Their capabilities were an exact fit with our needs and we were confident that the team had the skills to rapidly respond to our overall business requirements.”
Russell Glencross, Technical Service Analyst, Baillie Gifford: “Camwood has been pivotal to our work in the Application Virtualisation area and the service we have received has been vital in its success. Through the creation of a best practise approach and set of standards, provision of resource and, on-going ad hoc advice, Camwood has kept us and the project on track.”
Karl Martin, Project Manager, Santander Produban: “The team from Camwood has shown an unbelievable amount of commitment to ensure the delivery of our project. Not only did they work hard to find right the resolution for Santander, but their dedication and “whatever it takes” attitude were a true credit and guaranteed we did not fail.”
Allan Leggetter, Director of Enterprise IT Services, BAE Systems: “We recognise that undertaking a “software as a service” transformation will enable the business to be more agile in the deployment and management of applications across the enterprise. Camwood, as a recognised provider of expert services in this field, has been pivotal in progressing this initiative and is crucial to its on-going success.”
Adrian Moss, ICT Standards Analyst, Hertfordshire County Council: “Hertfordshire County Council appointed Camwood to complete an application compatibility assessment for our Windows 7 migration project. Their skilled consultants provided invaluable intelligence and insight into the amount of work required, laying the foundations for a successful migration.”
Chris Oats, Head of IT, Xentrall: “Xentrall is a public sector partnership between Darlington Borough Council and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, it was set up to deliver key back office transactional services. One of the areas which the partnership is focusing on is getting a better understanding of our application estate. We engaged with Camwood who provided us with an auditing and metering service, displaying the results through an analytics tool. Camwood recommended an application analytics tool called Vision provided by Rimo3. This tool not only helped us get a clear view of our application estate but gave us detail on departmental and individual usage for all applications, machines and users. This insight will help support us in our strategy to rationalise unused applications, improve service and reduce cost.”
