UK gas network Cadent heads to public cloud

HCL will help move Cadent's apps to the public cloud as well as provide IT support services across the organisation

Gas distribution network Cadent has chosen HCL technologies as its IT infrastructure service partner, penning a contract with the IT services company for five years.

HCL will take care of Cadent's cloud-based applications and services, migrating many of these, including SAP and Application Maintenance Services to AWS. HCL will back up its cloud application management services by providing IT service management, service desk, and managed workplace services to Cadent's 4,500 staff.

"IT is mission critical to Cadent as a business, therefore it is essential we have the highest levels of IT support. At the same time, we recognise the need to modernise our IT environment in order to increase our business efficiency and the overall productivity of our mobile workforce," said Tina Sands, CIO of Cadent.

"We believe that in HCL, we have chosen a partner that has extensive transformational experience and is committed to delivering real business value through the adoption of the latest technologies."

Cadent provides gas to 11 million homes and businesses in the North West, Midlands, East and South East of England and it's vital the company's IT infrastructure runs seamlessly to ensure these customers never experience a disruption to their service.

"The win in Cadent is a fantastic endorsement of HCL's drive to help clients lay the foundation of their IT on new age cloud services," added Sandeep Saxena, senior vice president, UK & Ireland, ITO at HCL Technologies said. "We are delighted to have been chosen as the partner who delivers this prestigious transformation, supporting a mission-critical national Infrastructure in the UK along with the needs of 3,500 mobile workers."

The company chose HCL to provide its IT infrastructure services following a tender. Cadent was impressed with HCL's cloud-first attitude, commitment to end-user experience and expertise in automation and orchestration.

"The cloud-first' roadmap we have laid out for Cadent will enable it to become a truly 21st Century enterprise supported by best-in-class technology and IT services delivery," Saxena added.

"Furthermore, through leveraging the automation and AI capabilities that are central to our Mode 1-2-3 growth strategy, Cadent will be able to realise improved business efficiencies."
