With a clear focus on the provision of highquality investment management services to a diverse client base , JM Finn was keen to embrace cloud computing as part of transformation plans to make the company ’ s IT more agile , cost-effective and easier to manage .
Since its inception in 1946 , JM Finn has grown steadily to boast both a multi-millionpound investment portfolio and enviable reputation for individual client-focused financial investment services , recognised among the best in the world . Together with the expertise and professionalism of its staff , IT has played a key role in fostering this reputation and Jon Cosson , Head of IT and CISO at JM Finn , was keen to continue the process by taking full advantage of the latest cloud developments as part of wider business reorganisation plans .
“ Following a decision to move our HQ to new modern offices in Moorgate and relocating our data centres outside of London , it made sense to look carefully at what we could do to improve not only performance , but the scalability , availability and ease of management of our data centres .
“ Public cloud was an option and will have a key role in the future , but for now we felt we could get the same benefits from a private cloud with the added benefit of greater certainty when it came to operational costs and our carbon footprint .”
Choosing a suitable platform was relatively straightforward as Cosson and his team had previously used the Nutanix Cloud Platform to first replace a key legacy storage resource then rapidly host a company-wide EUC application to support working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic .
COSSON IS KEEN TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE COMPANY ’ S NEW PRIVATE CLOUD TO FURTHER DRIVE DOWN OPERATIONAL COSTS AND MAXIMISE THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY ’ S INVESTMENT .
