iomart Hosting, the UK cloud computing and managed hosting services provider, has provided a virtualised platform to help Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L) consolidate its IT infrastructure in the UK.

Misys, the global market leader delivering application software and services for banking, treasury and capital markets, reviewed its hosting services this year and decided to create an exclusive relationship with iomart Hosting. iomart Hosting’s London data centre has in essence become Misys’ European data centre.

Phil Davies, Director IS for Misys UK & EMEA, explains: “We operate on the basis of a ‘one-Misys’ culture and the decision to go with a single direct provider of hosting is another symbol of that ethos. We already had a relationship with iomart Hosting and were impressed. The decision to use them as our sole host has proved the right one. As soon as the relationship was formalised, the benefits were tangible. There was an immediate improvement in the stability of our equipment and complete engagement with our business objectives.”

Employing more than 4,000 people, Misys serves 1,300 customers in over 120 countries, including all of the world’s top 50 banks. Leading analyst firm, Gartner has positioned Misys as a leader in its Magic Quadrant for both ‘Treasury & Trading Systems’ and ‘International Retail Core Banking’.

iomart Hosting owns and manages its secure data centre network. Dedicated on-site NOC teams manage and monitor customers’ mission-critical systems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The consolidation of its hosting provision has proved successful for Misys in the UK and will be considered for other key locations globally in the future.
