Introduction

Limerick GAA are a high-profile, Munster-based, Gaelic games organisation, serving a wide local population based in the city and county of Limerick.

Challenge:

  • Issues with IT, which needed to be addressed
  • Stand alone PC’s without filesharing capability
  • Information stored in various locations and across different devices
  • Lack of approved and reliable back-up solution
  • No server in place on network
  • Old computers which were slow

Objectives:

  • Gather requirements
  • Understand current business processes and needs of client
  • Deliver solution to meet requirements within budget and within time deadline

Solution:  Deploy new IT infrastructure

  • First phase: Spec out new server
  • Second phase: Order hardware and schedule callout onsite with client to install it. Liaise with third party contractors such as electricians.
  • Third phase: Migrating data
  • Fourth Phase: Guide client through new setup and be on hand to support and answer questions.  Assist client throughout following weeks

Results:

  • Peace of mind for client with quality support from the team at Hybrid
  • Reliable and tested backup procedures in the event of a security compromise
  • Fast and responsive computers because of deployment of new infrastructure, meaning less time taken on admin tasks and speedier processing of admin duties
