Oxford Saïd has won the Cloud Project Of The Year at the 2017 Real IT Awards, picking up the prestigious award at a ceremony in London on May 11th. The team was also named as runner up overall which is judged from all the 20 category winners, and picked up the runner up award for the IT Team of the Year.

'We are thrilled to win this award and for the IT industry recognition of our work at the School,' said Mark Bramwell, CIO at Oxford Saïd. 'Over the past year the team has been working on an ambitious, complex and truly transformational cloud based change to our IT infrastructure, applications, service and team. This award is testament to the fantastic work of the AV/IT Department at Oxford Saïd, and the University of Oxford and I am hugely grateful for the help and support of everyone involved.'

Oxford Saïd was shortlisted for 4 categories in the Real IT Awards which reflect the growing contribution IT makes to a business. As well as the Cloud Project award, the School was also shortlisted for “Infrastructure as an enabler”, “IT team of the year”, and “IT project team of the year” against industry leading organisations that included British American Tobacco, TUI Group, Tata Steel, Travis Perkins, Waitrose, Barclays and the National Trust.

To deliver the School’s AV/IT Strategy over the past 12 months the IT team has migrated all of the School’s servers to a new external data centre, migrated all the School’s websites to a new hosted platform, implemented Office365 for all 2016/17 students, managed the implementation of Salesforce for seven departments and migration of the School’s legacy Exam Results Database, and enhanced the School’s assigned seating and elective voting systems to provide 365x24x7 support.

'This is a fantastic achievement for the team who have worked in close collaboration with strategic partners to deliver a transformative IT strategy,' said Peter Tufano, Peter Moores Dean at Oxford Saïd: 'We are incredibly proud of their achievements and their continued efforts that underpin our vision to be a world class business school and ensures the continuous improvement and offering to our students and community.'
