The British led IMATT has approximately 100 international staff based in Sierra Leone where they provide the government with security. The locally serviced IMATT IT system suffered a catastrophic failure. In a chance conversation between IMATT personnel and staff from another military project, Fujitsu was recommended as an IT team that performed well in uncomfortable environments. Fujitsu recommended a range of upgrades including a dedicated server infrastructure to run the various services, an environmentally controlled server room, automatic off line backups, anti-virus and firewall protection and an improved internet caf? facility for home contact. Fujitsu also recommended a desktop refresh, as the existing estate of PCs and peripherals was something of a mixed bag, unreliable and hard to support without expensive specialist staff.
