A well designed and managed directory of staff is the fundamental building block to managing users, applications and devices within any organisation.
At BDS Solutions, we specialise in the design and implementation of Microsoft Active Directory for NHS Trusts. Microsoft Active Directory is used to authenticate and authorise all users and computers on a Trust’s network, assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software.
As organisations evolve, it is essential that this directory stays up-to-date to maintain effective control over access to applications and information. Crucially, as users demand access to services from multiple locations using mobile devices, an ever-greater dependency is placed on the directory to facilitate and govern these changes and access requests.
We provide a comprehensive end-to-end service to NHS organisations across the Country, from directory server placement to group policy definition and user persona management. Implementation involves some organisational IT restructuring to move devices, users and servers between organisations. At BDS Solutions we have developed software that assists with migration and transformation with minimal disruption.
BDS Solutions offers full support services for any customer looking to migrate their IT systems and the team work closely with you to optimise your IT environment to best support business operations.
Active Directory Case Study
Since 2005, BDS Solutions has been working with 13 NHS organisations in North West England to provide a collaborative shared infrastructure service; including hospital, community and mental health Trusts and the commissioning support unit. The group, known as the North West Shared Infrastructure Service (NWSIS), receives around the clock support from the BDS Solutions Service Desk team to ensure computer systems run smoothly and efficiently, supporting over 100,000 users.
Users benefit from a secure, flexible and reliable IT service, allowing them to communicate across Trusts; saving significant time, money and resources. The model has adapted to suit the needs of each NHS organisation involved.
