Business Challenge – Technical debt, accumulated through years of underinvestment, had become a significant threat to company performance at this financial services company.
  • Our Role in the Solution – Our consultant led a programme of work to rationalise the technology infrastructure estate, create a secure and compliant corporate home in the Cloud and then replatformed legacy systems.
  • The Outcome – Elimination of risks associated with an ageing on-premise estate by uplifting systems and ways of working to a consistent and modern standard, aligned to industry best practices. This assignment illustrated how strategy gets eaten alive by culture. It was a full-on challenge.
  • Achievements – Secured revenue by moving systems to secure, supported infrastructure, which also prevented possible breach of contract, met industry regulations and service level agreements.
