The Business Challenge...

Faced with a rapidly approaching End of Support threat for its Windows Server 2008 systems, the Leicestershire County Council engaged OpenSky to migrate its web-based Integrated Waste Data Management System (iWDMS) to Windows Server 2016, thus alleviating the risks associated with hosting a business-critical application on legacy software.

Through its fast and professional migration and support, OpenSky helped Leicestershire County Council maintain its Waste Management operations with full security, compliance and confidence.
