Overview

The Financial Times, one of the world’s leading business news organisations, is recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy and is read by 1.3m people worldwide in print and online.

Financial Times editorial and production staff rely heavily on PCs and Apple Macs to write and design the newspaper. Connectivity to the two data centres that host its ICT infrastructure is via the network of parent company, the Pearson Group.

Service Manager Jude Hull-Flower, who counts business continuity (BC) among his responsibilities, says, “IT is absolutely vital to the FT. Without our PCs, Apple Macs and connectivity to our data centres, there would simply be no paper. In over 100 years we have never failed to produce a paper and to do so now would be unthinkable.”
