Slaughter and May advised Ladbrokes - transformation of its data centre outsourcing arrangements with Vodafone01 Feb 2016
Slaughter and May advised Ladbrokes on the business-critical transformation of its data centre outsourcing arrangements with Vodafone (the contract having been entered into by Cable & Wireless prior to its acquisition by Vodafone). This involved the complex transition of Ladbrokes’ managed hosting operation to a co-location service across multiple data-centre sites within strict timeframes.
As a result of this deal, Ladbrokes now has much greater flexibility within its IT and data storage infrastructure, which will prove vital to its increased push for online business and the implementation of any changes required in preparation for and following its impending merger with Gala Coral Group.
