Technology solutions and services provider Datapac has delivered an integrated digital transformation solution to the National Opera House in Wexford in a deal worth over €200,000.

Today's deal marks the latest milestone in the long relationship between the National Opera House and Datapac, which is also based in Co Wexford.

The National Opera House is the country's first custom-built, multi-purpose opera house and is home to the world-renowned Wexford Festival Opera which this year celebrates its 71st anniversary.

Datapac undertook a detailed analysis of the National Opera House's ecosystem, designed a complete roadmap and implemented a futureproofed technology solution.

It also rolled out a completely refreshed PC and laptop hardware fleet with HP devices running on the latest operating system, including a migration to the latest Microsoft Office 365 platform.

Dan Kickham, Chairman of Datapac, said the new fully integrated digital transformation has future proofed the National Opera House's systems for their evolving requirements, ensuring they are prepared for whatever the future may hold.

"With our ongoing support and 24/7 monitoring of their systems, Datapac has provided the National Opera House with more than just a technology refresh, it has allowed for continued peace of mind in knowing that their systems are always optimised, allowing them to focus on what they do best," Mr Kickham said.

Randall Shannon, Director of Wexford Festival Opera, said the festival operates in the premier opera and performing arts venue in the country, and so it has a duty of care to the wider public to uphold the very highest of standards.

"Datapac have been with us from the start as our trusted IT Partner. As we began to identify shortcomings in our IT system, they were the obvious choice to turn to," he said.

"Over the course of the digital transformation Datapac truly acted as a collaborative partner; taking the time to fully understand our requirements to design and implement a solution that is not only best-in-class but best for us," he added.
