Case Study: Enhancing Football West's Infrastructure for Success

#The Introduction

In 2023 Football West, with a major investment from the State and Australian Governments, embarked on a transformative journey to the Queens Park space to provide a world-class sporting facility for football in WA.

The development of the Sam Kerr Football Centre marked a significant milestone, designed to meet international standards, and serve as a training ground for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Alongside this development, Football West recognised the need to modernise its IT infrastructure, hardware, and cyber security framework to align with its expanding operations and ensure seamless functionality at the new facility.

#The Challenge

With the development of the Sam Kerr Football Centre, Football West faced the challenge of updating its IT infrastructure and ensuring cyber security readiness. The scope included providing support for 60 staff, managing hardware upgrades, and facilitating a smooth office relocation to the new centre. 

Additionally with the increasing threat landscape in cyber space, there was a pressing need to fortify the organisation’s cyber security defences to protect sensitive data and maintain operational integrity.

#The Solution

Sharp EIT Solutions assumed the position of Official IT provider for Football West, taking responsibility for managing IT support, facilitating hardware upgrades, and supplying essential office equipment such as printers and copiers to the new Sam Kerr Football Centre. 

Recognising the critical importance of cyber security, Sharp EIT Solutions implemented a robust security layer encompassing advanced cyber security protocols, a staff cyber security educational platform, and adherence to the Essential Eight cyber security framework – a set of mitigation strategies developed by the Australian Cyber Security Centre to enhance cyber security posture. 

At the same time, through meticulous planning and execution, the relocation process was completed efficiently, allowing Football West to resume its activities at the new facility without delays.

#The Results

The partnership with Sharp EIT Solutions proved to be highly successful for Football West. The organisation expressed satisfaction with the smooth integration of IT services and office relocation, attributing it to the expertise and dedication of the Sharp EIT Solutions team. 

Football West's Chief Operating Officer, Perry Ielati, commended the level of service provided by Sharp EIT Solutions, stating;

"The support we received from Sharp EIT Solutions has been invaluable. Their proactive approach to IT management and cyber security has significantly enhanced our operational efficiency and security posture."
