The Cambridge Building Society moves to Azure cloud

The Cambridge Building Society has migrated to DPR's cloud-hosted mortgages and savings software platform using the Microsoft Azure cloud, to improve its operational efficiency.

The enhanced infrastructure was delivered to The Cambridge in just four months, while meeting strong compliance and governance demands with “rigorous testing”.

DPR's cloud service has strengthened the robustness of The Cambridge’s infrastructure, it said, improving resilience, reducing potential downtime, increasing security and providing better disaster recovery/business continuity (DRBC) capabilities.

Azure will also provide it with increased flexibility, allowing its infrastructure to be scaled in response to both peaks and troughs in demand as well as long-term business growth.

DPR is an approved Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP).

Trevor Tannenbaum, head of IT and change at The Cambridge, said: “The plan was executed perfectly and all key milestones delivered on time. Now we are live on Azure we are starting to see the benefits.

He added: “The flexibility it offers will enable us to manage growth and reduce our overnight processes to allow customers full access to their accounts throughout the day.”

Neil Locke, head of cloud implementations at DPR, added: “This was a major project and we are delighted with how well it was executed with minimal disruption.”
