Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s journey to the Cloud transforms their workplace. In their own words, CFT was a “dinosaur” when it came to IT and infrastructure, operating from neglected offices in Bromley in a forest of tangled servers and databases. Their website and intranet was no longer fit for purpose with its users struggling to communicate effectively. 

Project Summary

In order to be a “Digital First” organisation and help them to achieve ambitious plans for the future, CFT worked with ClearPeople, a Microsoft Gold Partner and Cloud expert, to detangle their hosting infrastructure and move to Azure. 

The move to new shiny offices in Aldgate was communicated internally through their SharePoint intranet homepage and the introduction of Yammer has allowed increased involvement and collaboration with employees and people with cystic fibrosis, and increased visibility and engagement for remote workers.


The solution enabled the Trust to deploy a scalable and future-proof infrastructure quickly at minimum cost, providing a new way of working for its employees and volunteers. With many of these people living with cystic fibrosis themselves, they are unable to meet in person so the ease of working remotely on multiple devices with single-sign on access to documents and resources has massively improved productivity for the organisation. 

Key Features

  • Single-sign on
  • Office 365
  • Azure hosting
  • Yammer
  • Sitecore website

“This was a huge project in a short timescale which has helped reduce budgets rather than add. Last year everyone was fixed to a desk without document management and little remote access. To say that this has increased productivity and efficiency for the Trust would be an understatement.” Cystic Fibrosis Trust
