Koninklijke Kentalis conducts examinations and provides diagnostics, care, education and educational support to persons with language development disorders or hearing disabilities.
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.”
