After 6 years of managing its own datacenter, it was time for Wigo4it to opt for professionalisation.
As a cooperative run by and for public authorities, Wigo4it housed its IT infrastructure, from its establishment in 2007, in the datacenter of the Municipality of Rotterdam for fall-back equipment. In 2014, Wigo4it had outgrown its space, making a move to a professional datacenter both timely and essential.
Wigo4it designs, develops and maintains applications for the social services of the four major cities: Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht (the G4). They use the applications among other things for making welfare payments, for reintegration programmes, to support youth care and the supervision of care under the Exceptional Medical Expenses Act (AWBZ) and for debt counselling. As a vulnerable group in our society depends on these payments, it is vitally important that Wigo4it's services and data of the G4 are managed with the greatest care.
