Queensland Theatre Company benefits from partnership

Constrained by ICT inflexibility, Queensland Theatre Company (QTC) needed to overhaul its IT environment and establish a more reliable hosted platform that would protect its data and systems from future natural disaster risks.

Financially, Datacom provided an in-kind partnership that enables QTC to achieve critical ICT expenditure savings and transfer all remaining ICT capital expenditures into operational costs.

In less than a month, QTC transitioned to the new infrastructure offering scale and rapid provisioning available through the Datacom Cloud. The resilient infrastructure platform minimises business risk from potential natural disasters or outages. The platform has enhanced server availability during ticketing and continuity of systems during theatre performances.

QTC now leverages Datacom help desk experts for end-user and server computing support, freeing onsite staff to shift to creative and strategic efforts. A productivity boost has also emerged from QTC’s new wireless environment, allowing staff to work from anywhere and no longer be desk-bound.

“The transition has, from our perspective, been quite seamless. Datacom’s professionalism and pragmatism contributed to the successful outcome of this project.”
