Here’s the blurb:

When you're an organisation the size of the Royal Mail, there comes a point when you really have to stop and take stock of IT operations. Register reader Adrian Steele, from the Royal Mail, did this in 2008 and noted the state of their infrastructure.

More than 30,000 users with multiple email systems, not enough bandwidth or storage, obsolete PCs, thousands of Lotus Notes applications and multiple operating systems caused a giant headache for both Royal Mail's IT department and its system integrator CSC. To sort out the problem, it devised a plan that would either be brilliant or career-ending: it was going to move all its users to the cloud in a matter of weeks.
