WWF cuts IT costs
WWF-UK contracted Microsoft partner Bluesource to support its migration to Microsoft and to provide ongoing services. This was essential in the light of reduced spending on IT support resources.
The recession has put pressure on charities to cut their overheads. As a result, not-for-profit environmental group WWF-UK had to cut its costs.
The organisation decided to implement a new e-mail system and make it a Microsoft house. This made support for its systems more widely available so it could reduce its internal resource requirement.
It also moved its datacentre to a virtualised server environment using VMware, which helped it meet a groupwide goal to reduce its carbon footprint.
Here are images of some of the species that benefit from the organisation's work, with some key IT statistics for WWF-UK.
