Koninklijke Kentalis helps people with language and hearing problems
The organisation, whose core task is to facilitate communication, has roughly thirty schools providing special-needs education across the country. It additionally runs several care centres providing treatment to children before and after school and a large number of audiological centres for diagnosing persons with hearing disabilities and speech/language difficulties.
Nord van den Aakster, Senior Network Administrator at Koninklijke Kentalis, explains that ICT in its entirety is administered centrally in the organisation: "Data storage and internet connections are all centrally administered, in the datacenter. We use various applications at Kentalis. All our clients' and users' data are stored in a private cloud environment, which also doubles up as the platform on which our financial system runs. So a secure and stable system is essential for our day-to-work and, just as importantly, the privacy of everyone receiving care or education from Kentalis.”
