- Charity Invests in Managed Hosting Platform for Secure and Reliable Online Fundraising Presence

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity has selected NTT Europe Online to provide a managed hosting platform for its charity website. The site is the portal for all the hospital's fundraising events and new campaigns, as well as providing a gateway for online donations. The charity will work with NTT Europe Online's team to create a foundation for future developments.

With web donations seen as key to future success, the hospital needed a secure, reliable platform that could easily scale as required to support the growth and development of its site. The charity selected NTT Europe Online to future proof the website; developing a flexible platform that can continue to evolve and meet its changing needs as the organisation grows its online fundraising capability.

As the online front of our fundraising operation, we need the charity website to be up and running all the time. It's of crucial importance that the website is reliable and always available to potential patrons when they wish to donate, says Mark Saldanha, Head of IT at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. Our decision to work with NTT Europe Online is part of a strategic move to build relationships with long-term partners that understand our challenges and can support us as we continue to grow. NTT Europe Online met our stringent procurement standards and represents a sound investment in the future of the Charity.

We are also adopting the ISO27001 Information Security Management standard and the fact that NTT Europe Online already had this sealed the deal for us, Saldanha concludes.

Web hosting is as much about the future as it is the here-and-now, and as a charity organisation is it important that Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity has the right managed-hosting platform in place for the digital age, says Damian Skendrovic, of NTT Europe Online. NTT Europe Online has worked with the Charity's IT team to create a secure, reliable and scalable platform on which it can continue to grow, maximise the potential of the web and build its future operations.
