Central and North West London NHS Trust is working with Rackspace to bring its technology back in house after a long term outsourcing contract, using a best of breed, hybrid cloud approach to building a platform to power transformation.

"We spoke to lots of suppliers to understand the art of the possible and to find out what they could do for us, to deliver benefits which we hadn't been previously accruing", says Owen Powell, ICT director, at the trust.

Powell explains the best of breed approach to smart sourcing, where they kept core skills in-house, but lent on technology providers to do the heavy lifting where they had more expertise.
