Rentokil Initial Launches Hybrid Security Operations Center to Support Workforce
Rentokil Initial is a leading global hygiene and pest control company with a large mobile workforce and a distributed IT estate. To enable both office staff and field employees to work securely from anywhere, the company turned to VMware to deploy VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Carbon Black Cloud in its hybrid security operations center. This enabled the company to gain greater control over its devices, reducing the threat of cyberattacks while working toward a Zero Trust security model.
"Since switching to [Google Workspace], we’ve saved millions of pounds (£) on IT maintenance and several hundred thousand pounds by cutting the time spent on administrative tasks through using tools such as Google Docs, Sites and Forms."

Squad Building for Innovative Product Development
A banking end client were looking to develop a new web application which could decrease the involvement of the operations team on engineering tasks, however at the early stage it was merely a vision. As this had never been done before, the team at the time didn’t have the expertise to go and turn this initial vision into a reality.
Using are industry expertise, we were able to work alongside our solution partner to build a squad which was tasked with creating a greenfield web application which allows SMEs to design new services for the infrastructure engineering department, which can then be automatically created and deployed within the bank.
The Key Tech Technologies for this solution were - Microservices, Jenkins, Golang, GCP, Angular, Kubernetes and Docker
The Squad included - DevOps Engineer, Front-end Developer, Back-end Developer, Automation Test Engineer, Solution Architect and Product Owner. This squad is still supported by SME/Consultants when needed.
Long term booking leading to £X million in revenue for our solution partner, but also a compelling case study and eyes on the ground to help them grow their footprint within the bank.
