Brennan IT confirms three-year partnership with Endeavour Foundation

Brisbane, Australia – Brennan IT has announced it re-signed its partnership with not-for-profit charity organisation, Endeavour Foundation, to provide WAN and co-location services. The three-year agreement extends the existing relationship between Endeavour Foundation and Brennan IT, which commenced in 2009.

The new deal follows an extensive collaborative process with Endeavour Foundation, during which Brennan IT engaged in multiple iterations of technical and commercial workshops to shape the solution appropriately. During this time, Brennan IT’s flexibility and focus on simplification meant the project expanded to include the migration of multiple multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) networks into a single, Brennan IT MPLS network.

Endeavour Foundation highlighted its key business requirements, largely driven by the changes needed to implement NDIS, as flexibility, consolidation and simplification of the current MPLS network from multiple providers. The Foundation anticipated this would deliver cost savings while providing scalability and flexibility for rapid growth and contraction according to its needs. Brennan IT also needed to guarantee system availability with confirmed service level agreements (SLAs) and a comprehensive support model.

Sharon Herridge, head of technology, Endeavour Foundation, said, “Flexibility and the ability to simplify complex networks were key to Endeavour Foundation. It was also essential to choose a strategic partner that could offer flexible commercial terms to enable ongoing alignment with business requirements. Brennan IT delivered on all counts, working closely with Endeavour Foundation to deliver a commercial and technical solution that will position Endeavour Foundation strongly for future growth.”

The new solution includes more than 250 WAN links including co-located internet and cross-connects, managed hardware including 3G routers and Wi-Fi access points, and co-located rack space.

Stephen Sims, CEO, Brennan IT, said, “This new partnership extends Brennan IT’s long and successful history of working with Endeavour Foundation to support the flexibility, growth, and strategic initiatives of the business. This contract was signed after extensive due diligence during which Brennan IT proved its commitment to Endeavour Foundation and demonstrated its capability to deliver according to the customer’s needs. We’re looking forward to finalising and delivering the WAN migration project.”

Brennan IT has been a longtime strategic partner of Endeavour Foundation and proud sponsor of the organisation’s various charity events, including the annual Charity Golf Challenge and the recent Melbourne Cup Luncheon.
